Last evening, Justin Timberlake gifted fans with an opportunity to stream his latest album, The 20/20 Experience, on iTunes—for free and four days early.
Twitter nearly exploded, and Timberlake's upcoming effort proved to be what many of his listeners could have only hoped for: a matured artist whose growth over the years came to a head in his work.
