It’s been almost seven years since we’ve heard a new album from Justin Timberlake, but the Mickey Mouse Clubber turned N’Sync member turned bona fide Hollywood actor has returned to the studio to release his third solo album. After a three day countdown on his website JustinTimberlake.com, the pop star has released his first single with Suit and Tie, confirming that new music from JT was worth the wait.
Producer Timbaland meshed JT’s signature R ‘n B, funk and pop sound on the track, with Timberlake bringing his sexy back with a low down beat that attaches itself to listener’s hips. While Timberlake has collaborated in the past with Beyonce, this time it was Bey’s husband who hit the studio with Justin. Jay Z laid down his own verse on the track, singing about fashion and marriage, two topics that fit both Hova and newly married Timberlake.
Timberlake’s forthcoming album The 20/20 Experience is set to be released later this year, with Timberlake telling fans in an open letter on his website that recording the album “…was probably the best time I’ve had in my career… Just creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process.
You can, and should, listen to Suit and Tie on JustinTimberlake.com or purchase the new single on iTunes.
