Justin Timberlake is only in his forties, but based on his newest business arrangement, he appears to be ready to move on from his musical past and enter a new phase of his career. Timberlake decided to part with his whole discography, according to PEOPLE, on Thursday, May 26th.

The actor has been working with Hipgnosis Song Management (a private equity group funded by Blackstone) to reach an agreement that includes  “copyrights of approximately 200 songs that Timberlake wrote or co-wrote,” including hits like “SexyBack,” “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” and “Mirrors.”

The exact financials are yet unclear, however individuals familiar with the situation estimate that the sale is worth just over $100 million.

“Justin Timberlake is not only one of the most influential artists of the last 20 years but he’s also one of the greatest songwriters of all time,” Merck Mercuriadis, the founder and CEO of Hipgnosis Song Management, said in a press statement. “His hit songs including ‘Cry Me A River,’ ‘Rock Your Body,’ ‘SexyBack,’ ‘My Love,’ ‘What Goes Around… Comes Around,’ ‘Suit & Tie,’ ‘Mirrors’ and ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ are amongst the most iconic of the period.”

He went on to describe working on the contract with Timberlake as “a labor of love,” saying, , “I’m delighted to welcome them all to the Hipgnosis Family. This is the beginning of what we believe will be an incredible relationship important to us all.”

Britney Spears Reveals She’s Working on a Book

Britney Spears confirmed she’s “writing a book” on Instagram on Monday.

Spears said that the experience was “healing and therapeutic” for her. “It’s also hard bringing up past events in my life. I’ve never been able to express openly.”

Spears stated that she intends to write her book using an “intellectual approach.” “‘I’m using the intellectual approach as Justin Timberlake so respectfully did when he apologized to Janet Jackson and me…. He took the opportunity to apologize 20 years later!”

Britney was referring to Justin’s apologies after the documentary “Framing Britney Spears” focused on their split.

Timberlake had been criticized for how he handled their breakup.

On Instagram, he said,“I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond. I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right”. He added, “I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism.”

“I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed,” Timberlake continued.

People magazine announced in February that Spears had signed a $15 million tell-all book deal.

Spears has signed a deal with Simon & Schuster, according to Page Six. “The deal is one of the biggest of all time, after the Obamas,” a source revealed.

Britney Spears Speaks Out On Justin Timberlake Using Her Name For Record Sales

Britney Spears hasn’t let go of anyone’s neck since she ushered in a new season of freedom from conservatorship. Spears’ Instagram photos have gone viral, and the superstar singer has frequently called out family members and former acquaintances for allegedly mistreating her behind the scenes. Spears has often insulted her mother and sister, but she also addressed her equally famous ex, Justin Timberlake, in a now-deleted Instagram outburst.


After the longtime friends became lovers, the Britney-Justin era of pop culture was a takeover made in Mickey Mouse Club heaven. Their highly publicized breakup dominated the news, and Timberlake even featured a Spears lookalike in his megahit classic “Cry Me a River” music video.


Timberlake has been mocked by Spears’ followers over the years for how he handled the separation, and Spears revisited that moment in her life in a lengthy Instagram message.

The Narrator’s View Of Britney Spears

“I got a call from Jesus last night, and you know what he said???” It all started with her caption. ‘Dear child…’ Your mother had a serving with her book just when you needed her the most… WHAT IS IT ALL FOR??? ATTENTION and FAME!!!! Your ex-boyfriend did the same thing… he released his first album under your name, claiming you cheated on him!!!! Then there’s your blood, which is one of the most difficult times in your life, and guess what your sister does… There’s also a book… “All for what?” says the narrator.


“Knowing that writing a book is the last thing you’d ever do… well, because you ran away from the drama and built a fantasy world for yourself… that’s why artists play characters to escape!!!!” Meanwhile, Timberlake came out in support of Spears during her quest to have her conservatorship lifted.
