By Powers Combined, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland and Jay-Z Become ‘Suit & Tie’
While you were opening your blogging platform to write your epic fashion recap of the Golden Globes, Justin Timberlake made good on the tacky teaser/countdown thing on his website and released a new ode to menswear. "Suit & Tie" is a light, funky little number in which Timberlake volunteers to teach his listeners a thing or two about love over a beat from his old pal Timbaland.
When listening, you can pretty much imagine the entire music video playing out, and it will probably involve Timberlake in a fancy club with other fancy people and/or channeling his inner Michael Jackson. Jay-Z makes an appearance, which is all well and good, but we’re all still waiting on that Beyoncé collaboration, or at least another banger with Nelly Furtado.
Great things have come from the Justin Timberlake-Timbaland Super Best Friendship in the past, so even if "Suit & Tie" isn’t an earth-shattering, "SexyBack"-grade return, it’s an indicator of good things ahead in 2013. Download over at iTunes or listen below and find yourself happily transported to a happier time, like 2006 or something.
