In addition to the album, Timberlake also released the cheeky music video for “Man of the Woods” — his fourth so far for the album. Fans were delighted to see Timberlake’s wife, Jessica Biel, featured in the video.

The YouTube community also posted reaction videos to “Man of the Woods,” the song and video. The overall response was great, fans really seemed to enjoy the single and the simple music video.
Critics, however, were less enthused about Timberlake’s effort. The Rolling Stone gave the album three and a half stars, calling the work “the least cohesive listen” of his entire album catalog. USA Today said that although Timberlake did try, he couldn’t “pull off Americana-pop fusion.”
Still, fans seem to enjoy the singer’s fifth album. They’re certainly ready for Timberlake’s Super Bowl halftime performance this Sunday. What a great lead-in!
