LOS ANGELES (AP) -- There are music artists who seem to drop albums the way Mickey D's churns out hamburgers. Then, there's Justin Timberlake. He says he isn't one to rush the process just to have a new project out. He says his music making comes from experiences he has in life -- so deciding to make an album "is a really big deal" for him. Timberlake's last album was in 2006, when he dropped "FutureSex/LoveSounds." He's since done songs with other acts and has done some movies. But when it comes to releasing music constantly, he says he doesn't think he can "pump them out every year."

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Mr. “SexyBack” performed back-to-back Sunday night.

After Justin Timberlake’s performance at the Grammy Awards, the pop star electrified during a 90-minute set at the Hollywood Palladium.

Timberlake sang familiar hits—from “Senorita” to “Rock Your Body” to “My Love”—as well as new R&B numbers from his anticipated new album. He was easygoing onstage—as if he’d never left.

Like at the Grammys, Jay-Z joined in for “Suit & Tie.” Beyonce was among the VIPs looking on, along with Kelly Rowland, Neil Patrick Harris, Timbaland, Lance Bass and others.

Timberlake apologized to the eager crowd for taking so long to release new music. His last album was out in 2006.

He said, smiling: “It’s going to be a fun year.”

Timberlake’s new album, “The 20/20 Experience,” is out March 19.
