Just last week we commented on the fact that, despite his apparent retirement from music, Justin Timberlake keeps generating new covers with his limited catalog. We’ve heard a Brooklyn brass-punk band take on “My Love,” but now we venture further south. Down in Brazil, “jazz-rock-swing-romantique-cool-cabaret-experimental” (their description) septet Baleia recoded a swinging cover of Timberlake’s “What Goes Around…Comes Around.”
The video, directed by J.P. Garcia, finds the group grooving away in various tropical-looking Rio de Janeiro locales. It’s part of a Brazilian series called “Cover Flow,” which Google Translate stops just short of helping us understand. The series (festival?) has a YouTube page though, so hopefully more covers will be forthcoming. Until then, enjoy this sassy Timberlake tune.
