Solo artists J.C. Chasez, Justin Timberlake, and Robin Thicke are all releasing sophomore albums before the end of this year.

Of the three artists, the most familiar is Justin Timberlake, who’s second effort, SexyBack, is shaping up to be a strong follow-up to his 2002 debut, Justified.

Chasez and Thicke haven’t experienced as much commercial success as Timberlake, but all that may change with Thicke’s, The Evolution of Robin Thicke, and Chasez’s new (untitled) release.

Chasez’s first album, Schizophrenic, was just that — Schizophrenia in both style and flavor.

Schizophrenic incorporated so many different musical styles and genres that it was more than just a R&B;/Pop album, it had a little something for everyone.

And while on the subject of ‘something for everyone,’ Robin Thicke’s first album did an excellent job of showcasing his combination of falsetto voice and writing ability.

Thicke recently teamed up with super star producer Pharell Williams and Star Trax for, The Evolution of Robin Thicke, which judging by the album’s first two singles, “Wanna Love U Girl” and “Lost Without You,” is shaping up to be something special.

To fully appreciate artists like Thicke, Chasez, or Timberlake you have to experience them as they grow rather than waiting on the sidelines to become a Bandwagoneer.

Case in Point:

Beyonce’s first solo effort shows her growth from one-third of Destiny’s Child; Mariah Carey’s Emancipation of Mimi is a totally different sound from what she was doing on Emotions; Justin Timberlake’s first album is a complete 180 from what he did with NSync.

So as we approach this next surge of quality music, let’s take the time to discover and celebrate artists who make good music regardless of color.

I caught this guy last night supporting John Legend. I’d say he’s a poor man’s Timberlake.
