Justin Timberlake Teams Up With SZA for ‘The Other Side': Watch
On Wednesday (Feb. 26), the duo released "The Other Side" along with an epic, futuristic music video reminiscent of late '90s and Y2K-era R&B.
“I was so thrilled to be invited to participate in this project with Justin,” SZA said of the collaboration in a press release. “The creative process of working with him and the team was filled with such excitement. It’s an energy you can feel in both the song and music video. I can’t wait for people to check it out.”
“It has been such a fun process writing and executive producing for this project,” Timberlake added. “Being able to bring together different creatives from various disciplines and genres has been the most rewarding part. Creating something that serves the movie while still being able to exist apart from it has been a fun challenge that was made even more exciting by working with the other amazing artists that helped us put this together.”

The 39-year-old former NSYNC star wrote the track alongside Ludwig Göransson, Max Martin, Sarah Aarons and Solana Rowe (SZA). The track was produced by Timberlake and Göransson for the upcoming Trolls World Tour film.
The "Mirrors" singer is also the executive producer of the soundtrack with Göransson. Timberlake will perform on seven other songs on the album.
In 2016, Timberlake released the hit single "Can't Stop the Feeling!" from the first Trolls movie. The track went 4x Platinum and was the No. 1 best selling song of the year.
Other artists featured on the upcoming Trolls World Tour album include Kelly Clarkson, Anderson .Paak, Mary J. Blige, Anna Kendrick, George Clinton, Dierks Bentley and Anthony Ramos.
The Trolls World Tour soundtrack releases on March 13. The film hits theaters on April 17.
