Just a short time after Justin Timberlake’s newest album dropped, The Roots’ Questlove revealed that Timberlake would be releasing a part two of the hit album sometime in November on a forum. The part two of the album was confirmed to happen by the singer himself a few days later, making fans eager for it.

Originally, Questlove hinted that the album will be released in November, but just yesterday, Timberlake posted a picture of him in the studio with a handwritten caption which read, “The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2) Sept. 30th.”

According to producer, Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, who worked on the first part, Timberlake will mix unreleased material from the first “20/20” album with brand new studio sessions.

“Before we came to the 10 [songs on “The 20/20 Experience”] that he wanted and the two bonus tracks, we had over 30, 40 tracks,” Harmon told Billboard last month. “So I think he’s going to go in, and we’re going to take some of the stuff that we’ve already done, and of course create more music at the same time.”

The 20/20 Experience sold an estimated 968,000 copies in its first week landing it at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. Since then, the album has managed to stay in one of the top three positions on the chart.

Can you hear the squeal of fans from all over the world, because we can.

‘The 20/20 Experience’ Part Deux?

Justin Timberlake’s album, The 20/20 Experience hasn’t even been out a week, but there’s talk that a volume two is in the works. Experience hit the web three days early via iTunes, giving fans (and critics alike) the opportunity to listen to the album for free before it actually went on sale.

According to Roots drummer, Questlove who performed with the singer on Jimmy Fallon, Timberlake is already working on the follow up to the album. On Saturday, the drummer posted on an Okayplayer forum that volume two is already in the works and to be prepared for a November release date.

Apparently the spoiler was initially a response to the scathing review that the New York Times gave the album. The critics wrote of the album: “of largely inconsequential beauty, showing Mr. Timberlake as an artist with no incentive to innovate, making his primarily a paean to brand maintenance.”

Questlove responded by writing the following on the message board: “its constructive criticism. i will say the album is OVERLY ambitious. like a LOT of ideas crammed into one. spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now…..10 songs later= 20 vision).”

So the question is, what did you think of The 20/20 Experience? Should it have a volume two or is one enough?
