The 2007 Grammys

In our house when it comes to TV and music Chris and I rarely see eye to eye. Now we actually can find a few shows we like watching together without one of us going to the bedroom to watch. Which btw usually ends up being me. So on Sunday I put my foot down. I wanted to watch the Grammy’s and Chris and Branden didn’t. They kept telling me to go in the other room so I said I always do you can go in the other room for once. Guess what they ended up watching it with us.

We agree on 2 music artist though. The first one is Prince and the second one
Justin Timberlake, aka JT or Hotness in our house. Justin Timberlake is a musical genius. Chris mentioned that no other artist has left a boy band to become a solo artist and has been as successful as Justin. He was actually wrong though there is one other artist that has been more sucssesful than Justin, Michael Jackson. Justin actualy imulates a few of Michael Jacksons music styles.

Just a little back ground on
Justin's solo career so far. Justin released his debut solo album, Justified, on November 5, 2002. It eventually went on to sell over 5 million copies in the U.S. and over 7 million copies worldwide. He released his second solo album, FutureSex/LoveSounds, on September 12, 2006. Future Sex/Love Sounds, was produced by Timbaland, will.i.am, Rick Rubin and Justin himself. The album features guest vocals by Three 6 Mafia, T.I. and will.i.am. So far he has had 3 single releases, "SexyBack", "My Love", and "What goes Around".

The quetion now remains a mystery will Justin Timberlake be the biggest solo artist post boy band?

What about Ricky Martin? Or if you live in Europe - Robbie Williams? On a global scale, I think they're bigger than JT.
