The Los Angeles Times caught up with Justin Timberlake and told the former *NSYNC star how he was sixth on a list of artists would sell the most albums over the next five years in a poll amongst 21 of the top executives in the music industry. “It’s flattering, but remember: You’re talking about people that rely on others to give them content. They rely on people like me to show the next thing, what it is,” Timberlake said. “They all want the next thing. Then a lot of them rush in and churn like 100 versions of it and water it down and then it’s gone. But we’re the ones – me and Kanye and Timbaland and Pharrell [Williams] – we’re the ones that make the music that people want to hear.”
