Every parent worries that they won't be able to connect with their kid. That there will come a day when you have nothing in common, when your interests are so different that you have no common ground on which to communicate. This is why Justin Timberlake exists, guys. Now that there are new lullaby versions of Timberlake's songs, you millennial parents can share your love of JT with your baby. Draw them in, play it as they sleep. So that they, too, can grow up in a world where Justin Timberlake will sing them to sleep.
Rockabye Baby Music are the masters of making "rock music baby-friendly and kids music adult-friendly," according to their website. The company has already created lullaby renditions of the works of Bob Marley, Coldplay, Adele, and the Beatles in an attempt to please both parents and babies, and it's not always easy. As label Vice President Lisa Roth noted:
First and foremost, we’re fans, so we take care to make every album musically interesting enough to satisfy adult listeners. Believe me, making an album that’s gentle enough for sleeping babies but still entertains Mom and Dad is trickier than it sounds.
And now they can add former 'NSync-er Justin Timberlake to the mix. Lullaby renditions of "Bye Bye Bye," "Can't Stop This Feeling," "Mirrors," and, rather perfectly, "Cry Me A River" will be just some of the songs available through Rockabye Baby as of Aug. 18, but you can pre-order now.
Roth explained to the Huffington Post that Timberlake's music could act as a beautiful bridge between parents and babies.
We hope our lullabies of JT entertain the parents as much as their little ones, and that through our albums we provide a bridge between the adult who existed pre-baby and parenthood.
Of course, Timberlake is a parent himself these days. His son Silas Randall Timberlake with wife Jessical Biel is two years old. I wonder if he'll be getting his own copy of Justin Timberlake's lullabies, or if he gets the live show every night. I bet it's live show all the way.
Whether you and your baby jam out to "Sexy Back," take it slow with "My Love," or try to get some sleep after a long day of tiring babies with "Cry Me A River," the most important thing is this' JT is going to be your baby's jam. You will revel together in your JT love throughout the years, always coming back to that touch point, that common ground. I promise you. Because they just can't stop the feeling... none of us ever could.
