Korean R&B artist Rich has a fan in *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake, who met the singer in Tokyo. Rich explained, “He was in Tokyo in March for a concert. While in Asia, he listened to the top R & B artists on the charts. His management company gave him my album to listen to. So he invited me to meet him in Tokyo. Luckily, my album was recognized by his company.” Why did Timberlake take such a liking to Rich? “He said that I have a really good feeling and the music is R&B, but sort of different. He liked that instead of being like an American R&B artist, that I had my own style that was unique,” Rich said. The pair agreed to record and perform together if and when Timberlake holds a concert in Korea.
