Justin Timberlake Debuts ‘Take Back The Night’ Video
Justin Timberlake’s new music video has arrived.
“Take Back The Night” drops the singer in a nocturnal New York City: owning the stage at Yankee Stadium, cruising through the city in a 1970 Chevelle SS, and dancing in the heart of Chinatown (sometimes, with a smooth-moving little boy).
Then he heads into Apotheke, an apothecary-themed, speakeasy-style cocktail bar on Chinatown’s storied Doyers Street, where he grooves at the center of the crowded dance floor. In the end, he hops in his ride and drives off into the dark.
Directed by Jeff Nicholas, Jonathan Craen and Darren Craig, the clip debuted Tuesday after fans tweeted their hearts out in an interactive Twitter-driven campaign on Timberlake’s custom site. As the total number of tweets with the hashtag #TakeBackTN rose, behind-the-scenes bits about the shoot were unlocked, eventually building to the release of the “Take Back The Night” music video.
