Background[edit]

After being announced as the voice to the lead character in the musical comedy Trolls opposite Anna Kendrick,[2] Billboard reported that Justin Timberlake also signed on to write and perform original music for the film.[3] Timberlake said in an interview:

It kind of all happened at the same time. I've been friends with the Katzenbergs for years, and Jeffrey had always spoken to me about doing a DreamWorks Animation film. I believe his line was, "We can’t let Elton have all the fun," and I've always said, "If the right thing comes up, let’s do it."... The directors brought me to the DreamWorks campus and pitched me the movie and the character. And when I came out of the room Jeffrey was there, and he said, "And there’s this other thing you could do…"[4]

By the time Timberlake joined the project, there was still some original music needed to be written for the film. Timberlake planned to cover the disco genre among the variety of pop songs present in the film,[4] for the soundtrack album, Earth, Wind & Fire re-recorded "September" with Timberlake and Kendrick.[5]
