New Music: Justin Timberlake f/ Jay-Z – ‘Suit & Tie’

Suit & Tie

He’s back! Over six years since the release of his multi-platinum album FutureSex/LoveSounds, Justin Timberlake finally picks up the mic again and all is well in the world. While he’s remained quiet about his recording sessions, he hinted at his musical comeback last week in a viral video.

The now-married megastar returns in a big way, enlisting Jay-Z for “Suit & Tie,” produced by Timbaland, JT, and Jerome “J-ROC” Harmon. In an open letter to his fans, he revealed that his third solo album will be titled The 20/20 Experience and will arrive this year.

What do you think of JT’s comeback record? Listen and sound off below.

    @Pereezy,YMCMB MMG. Good Kush & Alcohol, Literally the dumbest, most irrelevant comment on here. If no one wanted him back why would he trend for 2 days straight after he tweeted the date and time of his announcement? Why would he be #2 on iTunes right now? You’re really dumb. Stick to listening to your crappy music.

    Ursula Reply:

    @yo, Exactly. And when I said Robin Thicke was the TRUE representation of blue-eyed soul, people wanted to get mad. JT is an opportunist and only uses r&b music and black people when he wants a hit. Otherwise he’s with white Hollywood with his white wife. Robin Thicke doesn’t just use black people when he needs them, he genuinely loves r&b.

    [Reply]

    Issa Reply:

    @Ursula, @Ursula, You sound like a pure fool — which, from your prior posts, it’s clear you are. Skin color is irrelevant. Timberlake was singing R&B music before your dumb ass or anyone else know who the fuck Robin Thicke was. And now you’re taking a jab at his wife? LMFAO! So, if he’d married a black woman, you wouldn’t be making these ludicrous comments? Highly doubtful. This doesn’t sound a damn thing like Robin Thicke — this has been Justin’s style of music since FSLS. Thicke and Timberlake shouldn’t even be in the same conversation, especially since one is internationally known and swimming in Grammys. By the way, ignorant coon, MICHAEL MCDONALD is the personification of blue-eyed soul. If you knew a damn thing about REAL MUSIC, you’d know that.

    THIS SOUNDS LIKE ROBIN THICKE… WHY IS HE TRYING TO BE ROBIN THICKE? And I call b.s at that video of him saying he wanted to take a long time off for perfection and to not release a bunch of albums every year, have a seat you were busy acting in all them movies and clapping Jessica Biel’s cheeks. Now you back in the studio AFTER OUR CONSTANT CRIES and after all this anticipation you clearly came back with robin Thicke. Where is Justine Timberlake? It’s not even that it’s a jazzy song. I actually would’ve been upset if he tried to come with a generic pop song, but nigga this is Robin thicke down. WHY IS ORIGINALITY FADING IN THIS INDUSTRY… What Kinda Comeback is this? Justin THICKErlake. Robin Timberlake. Justin TimberTHICKE. Robstin Timbthickelake. Ugh so disappointed.

    I seriously think this is very strategic. Most of the time when artists like Justin Timberlake or Kanye West or Mariah Carey, etc. come out with “okay” first singles…you are a little disappointed, but at the same time since you have so much loyalty to these type of artists you are ANTICIPATING for the next record.

    Controversy (or in this case a not so “hit” record) stirs up more conversation than a “hit” record.

    Think about when H.A.M. came out with Kanye and Jay….

    @J DOE, I actually like Drake’s music. Take Care sounded like my journal. It’s lyrical themes were of everyday things: Failed relationships, mixed connections, relationship with friends and family, young adulthood, maintaining balance with growing wealth and fame (popularity), despondency, concerns about leading a hollow life. So Drake’s music is good and his radio singles slay the radio airwaves so he’s good. Future I can’t tolerate his music. I only like Turn Off The Lights because it was overplayed and his features are catchy and radio friendly (Loveeee SOng & Good Kush & Alcohol (B*tches Love Me) )JT brought back that grown man sound. These artist are young and free. Jay and JT been through it and now are married of course it’s going to be a different sound.

    JT hasn’t released an album in six years, so I knew there was no way the song would live up to the colossal amount of hype that had been built up for it. It’s an okay song, it’ll probably grow on me. I hope Justin has some better songs than this in the can though. My one real worry about this album is Timbaland is producing the entire thing. Back during Futuresex/Lovesound, Timbo was still on fire, but his beats as of late haven’t really been that good. Crossing my fingers that The 20/20 Experience will be a good album

Jill Scott, R Kelly, Kem, Usher, Kelly Rowland, Monica, Brandy, Fantasia, Chris Brown, Trey Song, all of them had at least one good R & B song, but didn’t sale, because everyone is into pop music. Justin will sell because he is white. How is Justin saying R& B, when all those superstars above still won’t sell what white Justin will sell. Lets be real.

    @Tbozfan10, The moral of the story is that Justin came back with real R&B and so many people are ungrateful and bitching, as if they could create something superior. The OP’s point was made clearly. Take a seat and grab yourself some reading comprehension.

    @Liam, yeah your right. It’s like with the frueits, some people alway’s eat the chemistry taste like fruites and if they get the real fruite they think it ain’t real and taste bad……

    JT i’m not a bIg fan but respect! Let RnB come back! Dance to the track and be happy that you kann actually hear the person sing… Not like neo or somthing…. Beat louder then the singer.,., rnb ain’t lil john or david guetta ^^

    I love JT but I feel like timbaland needs to take a break (another?) from music and come back with new styles if everyone is going to keep on using him.
    maybe this song will grow on me, but it’s not a WOW song that we’ve heard before from JT

    It’s ok, just ok, I love the production. Sounds like it’d be a good album track or buzz single but not a strong first single. It sounds like an interlude off Future Sex/Love Sounds. I don’t dislike but i think he shoulda came harder. Same goes for Jay-Z.

    He’s grown, so don’t expect him to be singing “I’m bringing sexy back” . People change and I believe this song is decent but people expect too much!

    I love it, I’m so happy he didn’t go for the generic electro hype! This song is freaking sexy! He could have chosen a bigger song but I do enjoy this one. Can’t wait for the video, and The 20/20 Experience!

    At the end of the day, you can’t make everyone happy, some will enjoy and some will hate, but i’m happy JT is back, and i’m also happy he didn’t go for the “dance pop” sound.

    I like this song, and I applaud him for sticking to his roots, It feels good to hear something DIFFERENT for once in a while.

    And I love the fact that he’s working with Timbo again! It’s like he’s starting off from where he left.

    And as far as the “Robin Thicke” comparisons go, so what if they sound similar? I highly doubt JT was thinking about Robin when he made this song, people just like to find a reason to b*tch about EVERYTHING!

    Listen to his last album, this single sound’s no different from some of the songs on “FutureSex/LoveSounds”.

    I like it but I do have to say something. He did not reinvent himself in no way (at least with this song,) this song fits futuresex/lovesounds perfectly (just listen to Damn Girl.) Besides that, I like the song but I just hope we don’t get a futuresex/lovesounds 2.0, it was a really good album but I want something different from him.

    [Reply]

  95. Rich

    I would say this song sounds to me like old skool smooth jazzy rnb pop soul that is completely different to anything on the radio rite now! Im glad he did not come out with edm or dance pop trash then he be follower he’s doing something fresh that’s not on the radio. I expect 2nd single to be banger though

    [Reply]

  96. ok

    I went and bought it, personally. This guy is so important to R&B and urban music, especially R&B because that particular genre of music is dying as far as popularity goes. We need him to come back and we need him to slay. I’m so tired of Pop music being the ONLY genre that can crack Billboard’s top 10….

    Are people disliking this because it doesn’t have a generic pop beat with a heavy bass line and an annoying dance break? Although it may not be his best work to date, it’s a great song. Check the iTunes charts = he’s #1…

    [Reply]

    MJL Reply:

    @Cici, I think that’s why. face it. if it doesn’t fit the electro Euro dance pop or the Hood beats, it’s not popular with these people. The song is a refreshing turn away from most of what I hear today. and while it does sound like something robin thicke would sign or something from his first two albums and when he was working with the Black Eyed Peas, it fits his style. He, Jay-Z and Timbo did not disappoint with me

    [Reply]

  101. Kyle

    It’s interesting because since Justin’s absence from music, I’ve gotten more accustomed to Robin Thicke and this seems like a song that would fit Robin better than Justin. But then again, they’re two white guys who sing R&B so I guess it could go either way. It’s really not a bad song though!

    [Reply]

  102. LosersWILLlose

    I LOVE it! A true bop and it’s sad people aren’t appreciating it because they’re use to the generic crap on the radio. They both want good music on the radios again an I agree. I don’t even listen to the radio anymore simply because of how repetitive and suckie the music they play back to back is. People talking about the song uck yet it’s #1 on itunes and is getting over 1000 spins already. Bring back music ADULTS can enjoy as well.

    everybody wants that sound we all fell in love with…but it aint gonna happen…ppl grow and find new ways to bring it…and thats the truth hands down…you better be glad that he is even stickin to the plan with timbaland cuz then we would really need to be concerned…

    reguardless of what anybody say…JT is the man…he wont fail even if you think he will…he is too good at what he does to fail…and EVERYBODY felt the same way about ‘sexyback’…then it was the hottest shit ever and changed the game…so STHU…enjoy…and wait for greater things to come

    The song isn’t bad the intro is just off. It has a classy cool type of feel to it can see it being played regularly on the urban radio. I admit sounds like music he has already done before but hopefully this is just a teaser to get his feet wet. It’s better than Justib bieber
    s generic music that

    @Tbozfan10, First of all, it’s “ROBIN” Thicke. Secondly, you are wrong. Justin has always sang songs like this. He’s not jacking anyone. In fact, this song could’ve easily been featured on his ’06 release. If you’re going to be condescending, at least make sense while doing so.
