Justin Timberlake will be honored with the Contemporary Icon Award by the Songwriters Hall Of Fame at their 50th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner on June 13.

The Songwriters Hall of Fame Contemporary Icon Award has been initiated in order to celebrate a songwriter-artist who has attained an iconic status in pop culture.

SHOF Chair Nile Rodgers described Timberlake as "extraordinary".

"Like Michael Jackson and George Michael before him, he's turned pop music into great art and made 3 or 4 of the most influential albums of the last 15 years," Rodgers added.

"Justin is the epitome of the songwriter-singer the Contemporary Icon Award was created for," according to SHOF President & CEO Linda Moran.

Timberlake has sold more than 32 million albums worldwide, sold-out arenas across the globe, received numerous awards and nominations and has become one of the most highly respected entertainers in the business.
