ESPN just announced that Justin Timberlake and Timbaland will be in charge of picking the music for some Monday Night Football games.

This will happen for seven weeks during the 2023-24 season.
The first song you'll hear from them is a collaboration with Nelly Furtado called "Keep Goin' Up." It will be featured in a commercial for the first Monday Night Football game of the season, which is between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets.
Here's the schedule for when Justin Timberlake and Timbaland will be curating the music:
Week 1: Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets
Week 6: Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Week 11: Philadelphia Eagles vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Week 16: Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers

Curtis Friends, who works at ESPN, said, "We've had some really cool artists like Diplo, DJ Khaled, Drake, and Marshmello curate music for us in the past. But this time, we have two amazing curators in Timbaland and Justin Timberlake. We know they'll get us all pumped up for this NFL football season!"
