Justin Timberlake Covers ’90s New Jack Swing Classic “Poison” At Brooklyn Show: Watch
Justin Timberlake kicked off his 20/20 Experience Tour in Brooklyn this week, and at his Barclays Center show Wednesday (November 6), the superstar treated fans to a cover of Bell Biv DeVoe’s era-defining “Poison.” The 1990 New Jack Swing staple had the entire arena singing along, but this was no cheap nostalgia thrill. JT fully channeled not just fans’ collective ’90s past, but his own, taking part in a choreographed dance breakdown with a couple of his Tennessee Kids backup singers which transported the whole arena right back to those boy band days that made Timberlake famous in the first place.
This totally makes up for any missteps on 20/20 – Part 2. Check it out up top.
