During an interview with Zane Lowe, Justin Timberlake revealed the reason why he had not worked with neither Pharrell or The Neptunes since his 2002 debut album, Justified: the Clipse.

Despite both being signed to Jive Records at the time, Pusha T and No Malice‘s infamous issues with the label began: a casualty following Arista Records’ absorption into Jive in 2004, the brothers Thornton were shelved for years until, after suing Jive (which, in turn, kicked off their epic We Got It 4 Cheap run), they were finally able to establish Re-Up Gang Records with the label and ultimately released Hell Hath No Fury in 2006.

“I don’t know what went on with their deal, but I do remember that Pharrell was very adamant about getting them out of the deal,” Justin said. “So it became — from my understanding, you know — it became challenging for him to work with any Jive artist at that point.”

Now, over 15 years since they first linked, J and P have reunited for Justin’s forthcoming album Man Of The Woods. With Justin confirming that the two have a “good solid six” songs recorded for the project, the first of these songs — “Supplies” has been unveiled as the second single/video.

Directed by Dave Meyers (he previously worked with Justin back when he was a member of NSYNC, on “This I Promise You,” and co-starring Eiza Gonzalez, the video can be seen below.
