Staff WriterJustin Timberlake revealed some interesting facts about his solo career in a brand new interview with Oprah Winfrey on OWN.
The former 'N Sync member said his new single "Love Never Felt So Good" was created when he wrote "Gone." Timberlake originally wrote the single for Michael Jackson, but Jackson's people turned it down. As a result, the handsome and successful singer offered the song to his group.
Michael Jackson, in fact, wanted "Gone" recorded as a duet between himself and Timberlake once he heard the song. Unfortunately, Jackson explained this a little too late, soon after the song was released as an 'N Sync track. Both talented musicians did try and figure out how to do a revamped version, but were unable to do so.
"Gone" is featured on the 'N Sync album Celebrity, and is markedly distinct from the rest of the tracks on the album because JT performs a solo. JT tells Oprah that this sort of sparked his solo career.
"I think it's the first idea I ever got about doing something on my own, because it was the first time I have ever really felt the confidence to do it," Timberlake confessed. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below! Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
