“Say Something” is the latest song to come from Timberlake’s upcoming album, Man of the Woods. He’s so far previewed the release with lead single “Filthy” and follow-up “Supplies.” Stapleton and Justin first performed together at the 2015 CMA Awards with a live mash-up of “Drink You Away” and “Tennessee Whiskey.” They re-group for “Say Something.” The duo wrote the song with producers Timbaland and Danja. Without resorting to the bro-country music of the time, both singers find the blues in their respective genres and blend them for a rustic and powerfully stirring collaboration. Timberlake taps into country music for something that hits the soul and close to his Memphis home.
In the music video for “Say Something,” Timberlake and Stapleton raise a ruckus in a factory. The song featuring Stapleton is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Timberlake’s Man of the Woods album will drop on Feb. 2.
