After releasing his brand new song Can’t Stop The Feeling last week, Justin Timberlake has climbed to the top of the Billboard charts. Timberlake’s pop hit has the ability to hold on to that spot for a while with its groovy beat and soulful sound, pushing Drake off the top spot only one week after he finally managed to get there.

One Dance was Drizzy’s first ever number one hit before JT took it all away in a clean sweep. In comparison, this is Timberlake’s fifth number one, following SexyBack, My Love, What Goes Around…Comes Around and for his featured spot in Timbaland’s Give It To Me. The good news for Drake is that VIEWS is still the number one album, beating Beyoncé’s Lemonade and Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool.

Timberlake has also said that he is working on his next album. According to Rolling Stone, his will to get started on his follow-up to 2013’s The 20/20 Experience was inspired by his work for his new movie Trolls.
“So then as that was happening I just wanted to stay in the studio, wanted to keep going in the studio ’cause you just get the creativity going,” Timberlake said. “I don’t know exactly what it’s going to be yet ’cause we just really started. I think it’s one of those things that’s just a feeling like you know it’s done when it’s done.”
