News: OK, first, Esmee Denters posts a video this week, with a surprise cameo appearance from Justin Timberlake, who plays piano and performs background for her. Then, today, Justin announces that he’s starting a new record label. “We are all excited about the talent we have to offer already on our roster, and I cannot wait to introduce the world to my new discoveries,” Timberlake said in a statement issued Monday.
Analysis: Hmmm. Is this pure coincidence? Or did Esmee sign with Justin’s new label? On Dutch TV, Esmee did admit she has already signed a U.S. recording contract — a real “shocker.” My guess is that it has to be with Justin Timberlake.
