Does Jesse McCartney Like Being Compared to Justin Timberlake?


Jesse McCartney‘s been busy hitting the road with the Backstreet Boys and making his music comeback with newly-released tracks, like “Back Together” and we couldn’t be more excited.

The 26-year-old, who wraps his tour duties with BSB this Sunday, has been receiving raves for his latest single from fans and critics comparing the pop star’s sound to Justin Timberlake.

So how does Jesse feel about being compared to music’s hottest man at the moment? Jesse tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest: “When anyone makes a comparison to Justin, I mean, how can you complain about something like that?”

“It’s definitely taken more on a more mature sound and has that sort of retro throwback feel to it. It’s definitely a fair comparison for sure.”

“Back Together,” as well as another sure-to-be-hit “Tie the Knot,” will be available on the singer’s four-track EP set to be released in October with the full album dropping later in early 2014.

Until then, download “Back Together” on iTunes here.
