Following Justin Timberlake’s announced return to music last Thursday he has released the smooth RnB track ‘Suit and Tie’. The track, with help from fellow superstars Jay-Z and Timbaland, is the popstar’s first musical release in six years. During this hiatus from the upper-reaches of the Top 20, Timberlake has kept himself in the public eye with his acting chops. After appearing in box office hits including Shrek the Third, The Social Network and Friends with Benefits, this über-slick single will come as an extremely pleasant surprise to fans of the hit-maker who brought them ‘Cry me a River’ and ‘Sexyback’.
‘Suit and Tie’ features a slow motion intro of synths and hi-hat clicks before gliding into a fluid Timbaland groove. A verse by Jay-Z and a chorus reprise wraps up the whole affair, leaving listeners excited for the future.
In an open letter on his websiteTimberlake confirmed his return and upcoming full-length long player entitled ‘The 20/20 Experience’.
