Justin Timberlake Performs “Say Something” & “Supplies” On ‘The Tonight Show’
Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl LII halftime show didn’t sit well with critics, but it looks like the general public enjoyed it if iTunes is any indication. (The superstar has six songs in the top 20, while his Man Of The Woods album is sitting comfortably at number one). JT followed up his polarizing performance with an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where he belted out two songs, beginning with buzz track “Supplies.” Let’s just say the quirky hip-hop/Americana hybrid sounds better live.
The 37-year-old later returned to sing “Say Something,” his hit collaboration with Chris Stapleton. This is shaping up to be the biggest song on the album. It hasn’t left the iTunes top five since release and it debuted at an impressive number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100. The appeal is obvious. This is one of the more traditional tracks on Man Of The Woods and it effortlessly showcases JT’s versatility and his collaborator’s powerful pipes. As with “Supplies,” it sounds even better live — particularly with a full band and choir.
