Justin Timberlake has been on a publicity blitz ever since announcing his return to music back in January, dropping music video teasers and making appearances on the Grammys and Saturday Night Live. In the past few days alone, the performer has made his new album The 20/20 Experience available to stream on iTunes a week early, and announced that The CW will be airing a Target-sponsored album release party. To top it all off, Timberlake is spending the week with his pal Jimmy Fallon, which Late Night is dubbing “Timberweek.”
