Justin Timberlake joins forces with Alicia Keys in the “Morning Light” on a standout track from his just-released album Man of the Woods.
Backed by soulful samples and acoustic guitar, J.T. kicks off the song with a sweet ode to his wife Jessica Biel. “Every time there’s a new sunrise, I open up my eyes,” he sings. “And I say to myself, ‘In a whole wide world of guys, / I must be the luckiest alive’ / ‘Cause I’m in love with you.”
A. Keys follows shortly after with her own dedication to her husband Swizz Beatz. “I can’t even get out of bed,” she sings. “With the thoughts you putting in my head / So I say to myself ‘I don’t even wanna try’ / Every part of me is paralyzed / ‘Cause I’m in love with you.”
The tender anthem appears on Man of the Woods, which dropped on Friday (Feb. 2). Keys celebrated their collaboration, writing: “Congrats to my friend @jtimberlake on ‘Man of the Woods’ !! Blessed to be a part of this journey you’re on.” J.T. responded: “Love love love to you, sis!!!! You saaaang on that!!”
Hot off the release of Man of the Woods, Timberlake is prepping for Sunday’s Super Bowl Halftime Show, where he is set to perform a medley of hits.
