Even though he's from Tennessee, Justin Timberlake doesn't have a reputation for being the most rugged, rough-and-tumble kind of guy. He's a bit more "Urban-Luxe" if you want our opinion. Maybe that's why his fans seemed a touch confused when the teasers for his new album started coming out.

As the basic white dude I am, I for one am excited for Justin Timberlake to make a Bon Iver/Mumford & Sons album.— Troy Moran (@Troy_Moran) January 2, 2018
personally, im here for sexy bon iver. much better than the actual bon iver who resembles a drunk pedophile— Filip Varmuža (@Life_of_Powell) January 2, 2018
Lemonade is about the historical legacy of slavery and racial oppression in America on black love. The Man of the Woods is going to be about the historical legacy of how white male privilege gave Justin Timberlake more success with hip-hop/rnb than his black contemporaries right?— Cal (@cal_erm) January 2, 2018
I don’t know why everyone is surprised he’s going “Into the Woods.” The name Timberlake is about as a woodsy as it comes.— Eric Schwartz (@ericschwartz) January 2, 2018
