Learning to Sing “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” by Justin Timberlake
This upbeat and catchy classic by Justin Timberlake offers much to learn in technique and style. One prominent technique used is Twang, a contemporary vocal technique often used to project without straining the voice. This technique is also used in other popular tracks such as “I Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd and “Rolling In The Deep” by Adele.
Twang is noticeable in the way Timberlake sings the chorus. It adds a bright, sharp quality to the voice.

Analysing Your Voice
Practising the Song
First, listen to the song a few times to familiarize yourself with the melody and rhythm. Sing along on the vowel sound “ah” to help you focus on pitch accuracy. Use our Pitch Monitor for feedback.
Before you start singing the song, make sure to warm up your voice properly. This can help avoid vocal strain and injury.
As you become comfortable singing along, begin to incorporate the Twang technique into the chorus. Record and listen to yourself. Do you hear the bright and edgy sound of Twang?
Perfecting the Song
Practice makes perfect. With time, the notes will become more accurate, your tone will improve, and the Twang technique will become second nature.
Lastly, remember to have fun and enjoy the process. Happy singing!
