Justin Timberlake ’s No. 1 fan? His wife, Jessica Biel, of course.

The “Mirrors” singer is gearing up to drop Everything I Thought It Was — his first new solo music since 2018 — and Biel is behind him 100 percent, a source exclusively PEOPLE in this week's issue.

Justin "just had this urge to create again. It was time. He’s been super into it, and Jess has been supportive,” the source tells PEOPLE of Timberlake, who turns 43 on Wednesday, and Biel, 41. "She's proud."

And Biel isn't just supporting the album in private.

On Saturday, the Candy star shared a TikTok of herself grooving to its lead single, “Selfish” — which she can’t seem to get out of her head.

“POV: Trying to get anything done the past 24 hours,” Biel wrote over the video, a compilation of clips of her dancing in the closet, brushing her teeth and doing yoga.

She also passionately lip-synced to the track throughout, dramatically performing the lyrics: “So if I get jealous, I can't help it / I want every bit of you, I guess I'm selfish.”

"ON 👏🏻 REPEAT  👏🏻@Justin Timberlake,” she captioned the TikTok, which has garnered over 3 million views.

The *NSYNC member also debuted another new track, "Sanctified," which features rapper and singer Tobe Nwigwe, who made an appearance alongside the star on the SNL stage.

Speaking about Everything I Thought It Was on Apple Music 1 last week, Timberlake said his new music will give fans a "real" perspective on his life — with songs that are "introspective and "incredibly honest."

"I was able, on some of the songs, to look back at the past and have a real, not a refracted perspective of what it was because they always say ... you always hear that thing about, well, there's never any truth, there's just everybody's perspective of what happened," Timberlake explained.

“But to really look at it and be able to metabolize and verbalize my perspective on it, I don't think I've ever really done that before," he added.
