The Rundown: Justin Timberlake, The 20/20 Experience
"Let the Groove In"
Much of The 20/20 Experience flirts with quiet storm territory — yes, it's soulful, but it can sometimes be a little too safe and soporific. On "Let the Groove Get In" we at long last get a blood-pumping glimpse of the experimental outer reaches of Timbaland's and Timberlake's funk arsenal. The tempo finally quickens, and the energy finally goes from foot tap to two-step, with percussion and horns that almost recall Gloria Estefan's Miami Sound Machine, and Justin again channeling the gloved one. More of this please.
