As reported by People, Justin Timberlake took to Instagram to explain the creative process behind the single “Better Days,” which he co-authored with up-and-coming musical artist Ant Clemons. “We wrote the song together during the lockdown as a reaction to the frustrations and challenges we’ve all been hit with this year… but also as a reminder to stay hopeful and continue working toward a better future.”
Clemons appeared to echo those same sentiments with his own Instagram post. “Together with the help of my brother @justintimberlake, we offer a glimmer of hope in the midst of the storm. ‘Better Days’ is a song we wrote together as a reassurance to anyone that needs to hear it, that in fact, better days are ahead of us,” Clemons penned.
Clemons was also quick to give credit to other key players who played a role in the song and the virtual fundraising event. “This song wouldn’t be possible without every person involved! Huge thank you to @staceyabrams & @fairfightaction for premiering this song at their Rock The Runoff Virtual Concert Fundraiser!”
