JT is certainly on his Suit and Tie shhhh…stuff. Slapping on his game face to make his reappearance in music, Timberlake has hit the ground running, first teasing his return to the charts on his website and then releasing his first single in years with Suit and Tie. The single has already broken records, garnering the highest number of radio plays in its first week of release in Billboard’s 20 year history. Not too shabby for the digital age.
Justin has now released a lyric video for the track, which is a step above the usual text on the screen video we’ve come to expect with lyric videos. Timberlake is present throughout the entire song, driving a vintage car to a sound stage where he models an array of tuxedos and suits. Proudly showing off his new wedding band in the video, Timberlake tickles the ivories, smokes a cigar and drinks brandy in the video, which could double as his audition tape for the Rat Pack.
The video ends with Timberlake reminding fans that his new album, The 20/20 Experience, is coming soon, though we’re still left without an exact release date. Until then, I’ll just continue to watch Timberlake get dressed repeatedly. Well done, Jessica Biel.Tweet
