A computer-animated film starring the shock-headed dolls that won't stay out of style, Trolls featured the voice talents of such double threats as Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, and Gwen Stefani. Its soundtrack was executive produced by Timberlake, who also provided the original song "Can't Stop the Feeling." The dance-pop tune, penned by Timberlake, Max Martin, and Shellback, topped the charts in over a dozen countries in the spring of 2016 before the movie's release that fall. Other Timberlake music from the film includes "Hair Up," "What U Workin' With?" with Stefani, and "They Don't Know," performed by Ariana Grande. Cast renditions of hits from the past include Deschanel's cover of Lionel Ritchie's "Hello," and a restrained "True Colors" by JT and Kendrick.
