Justin Randall Timberlake is a two-time Grammy Award-winning American singer and occasional actor.
He came to fame as the front man of the pop band 'N Sync. In 2002 he released his debut solo album, Justified, which went on to sell over seven million copies worldwide, solidifying Timberlake's position as a pop superstar. Timberlake's second album is due for release in the summer of 2006. Timberlake has been dubbed the new "King of Pop" by Rolling Stone Magazine, a moniker previously attributed only to Michael Jackson.
Timberlake is part of the more modern school of teen pop, which is mindful of dance-pop, urban contemporary, and hip-hop and got started with the rise of New Kids on the Block, Debbie Gibson, and Tiffany in the late '80s.
