Guilty pleasures? Justin Timberlake is one of mine. Well, I openly admit to it, as I am posting about his new song. Justin’s music is somewhat polarizing to the masses. I enjoyed FutureSex/LoveSounds a great deal, and I think a lot of you did as well, whether you like to admit it or not. Right before the weekend Justin posted a video hinting a return of new music. Now tonight, his first new song in six years is released.
It’s called “Suit & Tie” and features none-other than Jay-Z. It starts out as a slow burner, but soon blossoms out in full force with some jazzy sounds meshing with his flavor of r&b. Strong production, and a welcomed verse from Jay take it home. It may not jump out at first listen but a few more listens in and it’s begging to crunch a little harder and click here and there.
Timbaland produced the song, as well as the other 20 songs that may make the cut of his new album, The 20/20 Experience, which is due out later in the year. The song is available to buy on iTunes right now.
