Justin Timberlake: Summer Love

The music we tweeted this week and the second installment of our #PrivateJam series

The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards are taking place in Brooklyn tonight, a first in the show’s 30-year history. This past week has been a roller-coaster of rumors involving Justin Timberlake, who will be receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for his two decades of innovation in music videos. While everybody discussed whether JT’s former pop group ‘N Sync would reunite on stage for his performance or not, we revisited one of the singer’s older hits, “Summer Love” from his 2006 album, FutureSex/LoveSounds to round out this summer. Although there’s no video, the song’s bold, hypnotic synth melody creates the visual perception of sweaty slow-dancing.
