JT returns with ‘Suit & Tie’, his first new music in over six years.
As reported, Justin Timberlake’s triumphant return comes in the form of a single entitled ‘Suit & Tie’ that features Jay-Z and is produced by long-time collaborator Timbaland. The track is taken from Timberlake’s forthcoming third album – which, we also discovered today, will be called The 20/20 Experience.
After a chopped-and-screwed intro, ‘Suit & Tie’ launches into a lush throwback jam, all swirling piano and show-stopping horn accents. Thankfully, the time off hasn’t affected Timberlake’s vocal range or ear for a hook, and Hova’s languid verse is effortlessly cool (“time for tuxedos for no reason”).
