Justin Timberlake and Kerry Washington Are Birthday Twins, So Here's a JT Playlist for Olivia Pope

Posted on

Rex; ABC

In any class of more than 23 kids, there is a 50 percent chance two of them have the same birthday – and the same thing is true if those kids grow up to be famous Hollywood stars. Friday’s birthday twins are two of 2014’s most buzzed-about celebrities: Scandal emoter Kerry Washington (born on Jan. 31, 1977) and actor-turned-musician-turned-actor-turned-musician Justin Timberlake (born the same date, four years later).

Timberlake is Timberlake in everything he does, but for all intents and purposes, Washington is Olivia Pope right now. And since Olvia Pope has a lot of feelings, what better way to celebrate the occasion than by making her a JT playlist for all those late nights on the couch? Save the Motown for montages, Liv – it’s handled!

For when Olivia found out Fitz was sleeping with Amanda Tanner: “Señorita”

"He doesn’t love you
I can tell by his charm"

For when she realized Jake had set up cameras all inside her home to spy on her for Fitz: “Tunnel Vision”

"I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision, I only see you"

For when Fitz told her "You own me" in the Rose Garden: “LoveStoned”

"She’s got me hooked
It just ain’t fair
But I’m love-stoned and I could swear
That she knows"

For when she and Fitz tried to make an honest go of it at the end of Season 2: “Mirrors”

"I don’t want to lose you now
I’m looking right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold"

And one more, from the Jay Z rap:

For when Rowan Pope disapproved of her relationship with Fitz: “Suit & Tie”

"Tell your father we go further as a couple
They ain’t lose a daughter, got a son"

Scandal returns Feb. 27.
