Justin Timberlake is giving Robin Thicke a run for his money as he releases new music video to “Tunnel Vision.” After Thicke made waves with hisÂ banned “Blurred Lines” videoÂ chock-full of naked women, it seems like Timberlake followed suit.
“Tunnel Vision”, released on Wednesday, shows the singer in muted colors, dancing to the latest single off of his latest alsbumÂ “The 20/20 Experience.”
Most of the music video focuses on a naked woman writhing around in smoke to the beat of the track, reports The Huffington Post.
“For seven whole minutes, Timberlake and his pal Timbaland are seen staring in awe at writhing women with alluring looks plastered on their faces and flesh-colored g-strings serving as their only clothing,” Billbard writes.
“Ironically, the lyrics of the (still-great) single focus on the singer’s undying fixation on a single romantic partner, butÂ at one point in the “Tunnel Vision” video, JT’s face is projected upon the bare bodies of three ladies, as we, the viewer, wonder what Jessica Biel could possibly think of this music video.”
The clip was soon banned from YouTube for violating nudity policies, and now the video for “Tunnel Vision” has also been prohibited from the site.
Announcing the debut of the new video on Twitter, Timberlake’s people warned it wasn’t for the PGs among us, writing:Â “Check out the new video for Tunnel Vision and be ready…it’s explicit. -teamJT.”
The 32-year-old singer released theÂ album art to “Tunnel Vision”Â last month, showing his face superimposed over the silhouette of a naked woman.
“Tunnel Vision” is the third single off of Timberlake’s March album. Justin has previously released his comeback singleÂ “Suit & Tie”Â with Jay-Z and an emotional track calledÂ “Mirrors.”
The 20/20 experience was released six years after Timberlake unveiled his last albumÂ FutureSex/LoveSounds which had become extra-popular. Since then Justin Timberlake has been focused on his acting career and personal life.
In October Timberlake tied the knots with his longtime girlfriend, Jessica Biel, in a wedding ceremony in Italy.
âItâs great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends,â the happy couple toldÂ PEOPLE MagazineÂ soon after the wedding.
Biel, who has never gone public about her relationship with Timberlake, opened up about marriage in a May interview with the French magazine Gala.
âI donât think our marriage will change anything,â she told the magazine. âIt will be a challenge finding a balance between my private life, family and work, and Iâm ready.â
As for Timberlake, he said of his then-bride Biel at a Trouble with the Curve press conference earlier in October: âSheâs a really, really, really special person. Plus, sheâs really, really, hot!â
He went on, adding: âI think itâs important to remember that you go into something like marriage knowing that you donât know very much about it at all. But I do look at the marriage of my mother and stepdad, and what makes itÂ work forÂ them is that itâs a team effort.â
