The electrifying FutureSex/LoveShow finds Justin Timberlake putting on a typically stunning set before a sold-out crowd at New York's Madison Square Garden. Fans looking for pulse-pounding ... See full summary »
Timberlake's love interest in the video is played by Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough, with the video lasting for 7 minutes. The video was written by Timberlake and director Ryan Reichenfeld, and it splices scenes from a cushy loft, where Timberlake and Keough engage in various adult activities and a not-too-distant future where the singer is roped behind a moving truck driven on a dusty road by his lady. In another scene, Keough delivers a cast-iron skillet to Timberlake's cranium. Through it all, Timberlake keeps his chin up and continues to sing even while being dragged to his death. Written by
I must say that I am not the greatest fan of Justin Timberlake's more recent music videos and songs. His voice is not really great in this one, even if the song is occasionally catchy. Timberlake frequently gets hot actresses for his music video and here he has Riley Keough playing his lover, who has the ability to knock him out, of course not in the physical sense. The hip hop parts were fairly forgettable either. At 7 minutes, this was unusually long for a music video, too long in my opinions. Finally, I conclude that neither the watch nor the listen was a great experience here. Also the story tries to be much more significant than it has any right to. Timberlake being credited as writer here together with director Ryan Reichenfeld is not an honor at all. Not recommended.
