Not Trolling: Justin Timberlake + Icona Pop Are in the Studio Together

If it Justin Timberlake and Icona Pop waited for travelers under bridges, perhaps trolls wouldn’t be so commonly feared.

Tuesday (February 16), the Swedish electropop duo tweeted the photo above, in which they pose arm-in-arm with a baseball-capped Timberlake. “3 trolls in the studio,” they captioned the shot, likely pointing to DreamWorks’ forthcoming Trolls movie, for which Timberlake will voice a character and serve as executive musical producer.

So, does that mean we’ve got a three-way collaboration in the works? Timberlake’s responsive tweet, emoji of a trophy, pair of exclamation points and the praisy-or-high-five hands, didn’t confirm or deny, but we might be due for a very interesting soundtrack.

According to DeadlineTimberlake is set to voice the film’s main character, Branch, a “hilariously hardcore survivalist who hides his surprising true colors.” Anna Kendrick, also announced as a lead, will lend her voice to Princess Poppy, who will set off on an adventure with Branch “far beyond the only world they have ever known, [and] their quest will test their strength and reveal their true colors — with no shortage of musical mash-ups along the way.”

Icona Pop supported One Direction across the 2015 On the Road Again tour and released the fiery “Emergency” and nostalgic “First Time” in 2015.
