If Justin Timberlake wasn’t dreamy enough already, we’ve got 10 more reasons to make you swoon. The debonair “Suit & Tie” singer just released the artwork and tracklist of his highly-anticipated album “The 20/20 Experience.” Keeping it short and sweet with only 10 songs, Timberlake’s latest will take us on a ride with tracks like “Pusher Love Girl,”  ”Strawberry Bubblegum,” and “Let The Groove Get In.” [E!

While “Suit & Tie” is fresh on our minds, we’ve got to hand it to Jay-Z for his latest power move. Beyoncé‘s better half just signed dance icon Kylie Minogue to his RocNation team, which boasts Rihanna, Rita Ora, and hit-maker Timbaland on its roster. An international success, Minogue has sold 68 million records over her 25-year career. [Huffington Post]
