Just weeks after saying he was taking a break from his own music to concentrate on working with other artists, Justin Timberlake returns today with a new song, "Follow My Lead." The song was recorded at the recent charity event Justin Timberlake and Friends: A Special Evening Benefiting the Shriners Hospitals for Children and is available now for purchase through MySpace Music. Helping out on the track is Esmée Denters, the first artist signed to Timberlake's own Tennman Records. All proceeds from the tune will benefit the Shriners Hospital. Purchasing the track will also give fans access to video of the live performance of "Follow," plus interviews from the October's Las Vegas benefit concert.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
