Justin Timberlake has released another feel-good collaboration from the soundtrack to his upcoming animated film Trolls World Tour. This time, he’s teamed up with Anderson .Paak, who, like Timberlake, also contributes his voice to the film.
“Don’t Slack” was written by .Paak, Timerlake and Ludwig Göransson and comes with a lyric video that introduces a few new characters from the movie, a sequel to the hit 2016 film Trolls. Timberlake returns as a troll named Branch, while .Paak plays Prince D., who lives in the land of the Funk Trolls.
Prince D’s parents, King Quincy and Queen Essence, are voiced by funk legend George Clinton and Mary J. Blige, respectively.
“Okay, now, don’t slack/I need all my racks /No, we don’t hold back /Act like you know that/Go tell your old man/ Go get your whole fam/I’m fly like the ghost man/Taking all I can,” .Paak and Timberlake sing.
Last month, Timberlake dropped the disco-infused video for the soundtrack’s first single “The Other Side,” featuring SZA. The movie also features the voices of Gwen Stefani, Ester Dean, Kelly Clarkson, Kenan Thompson, Ozzy Osbourne and James Corden.
In Trolls World Tour, Branch and his pals learn that there are six different Troll tribes living in different lands, all of which are devoted to a different form of music: Pop, Funk, Classical, Techno, Country and Rock. The queen of the Rock trolls wants to destroy the other kinds of music, which means Branch and his friends have to unify the rest of the trolls and stop her.
The Trolls World Tour Soundtrack is available everywhere this Friday, March 13. The film arrives in theaters on April 17.
