After Justin Timberlake took the spotlight away from JC Chasez's excellent first solo album with his platinum-selling "Justified," it is now time to shine for the other talented 'Nsync heartthrob. And Timberlake agrees. He co-wrote and produced Chasez's brand-new single "Until Yesterday" that will impact radio on November 20. This song is finger-licking good and Chasez is sounding better than ever.
Instead of going after Timberlake's R&B driven sound, the two former bandmates came up with a melodic tune that is much more inspired by a '70s sound somewhat in the vein of Queen, 10CC and, dare I say, The Feeling with its swirling backing vocals, military drums and anthemic chorus. Just towards the end of the song I can spot Timberlake's influence with a little synth riff and string section that reminds me slightly of "Cry Me A River." Just a little.
Only the song's lyrics about a paternal drama are leaving me cold. "It is not your average love story, by any means," Chasez says of the song in a press statement. "It's actually about adultery and discovering your girlfriend has gotten pregnant with another man's baby. The song explains how you might deal with that situation."
The single is taken from Chasez's forthcoming album that also includes collaborations with Timbaland and Dallas Austin.
