After a long seven years without any new solo material, Justin Timberlake has already claimed 2013 as his own, with the unveiling of a brand new single – Suit & Tie featuring none other than Hip Hop icon Jay-Z. The track appeared on the singer’s website this morning, after teasing the release of a new track on Twitter. And now with the news of Destiny’s Child’s reunion, pop is evidently becoming “cool” again.
Suit & Tie sees Timberlake hook up with Timbaland, again, to take on producing duties. And the track in itself features an incredibly infectious chorus that drops into an up tempo, groove laden verse section led by the singer’s utilized vocal range and a rap from Jay-Z, of course.
With a brand new album, The 20/20 Experience, on the way, watch this space for more dazzling pop songs from Mr. Timberlake
Have a listen to the track over on Justin Timberlake’s website, and download from iTunes.
