What's the story?

FOLLOW MY LEAD is the new single released by Justin Timberlake and is part of a fundraising campaign for the Shriner's Hospitals for Children. It features vocals from newcomer Dutch-ess and YouTube sensation Esmee Denter. The song was recorded live at the recent Justin Timberlake and Friends benefit for Shriner's and debuted on MySpaceMusic.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

No risque lyrics or bump-and-grind beats to worry about here. This is a J.T.-style funkadelic pop track featuring solid soul vocals from newcomer 20-year-old Esmee Denter. While it starts with J.T. rapping "Hands up/I show you what I do.../Everybody knows this is the anthem," Denter takes the lead for most of the song, belting the chorus "Follow my lead/we'll go where no one goes.../Everyone leaves/be the one still standing strong."

With a positive message, a funky beat, and a good purpose, this is a single that's hard to resist.
