Justin Timberlake takes lyric videos to the next level with “Suit & Tie,” the first single from his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience. In the black-and-white clip, a dapper J.T. makes his way to a video shoot in L.A. in his classic car. He gets dressed up in a Tom Ford suit before heading to the set, where he takes a seat at the piano, plays roulette, and puffs a cigar as Jay-Z’s verse plays.
And just when you think the video’s over, he surprises with the release date for 20/20 (blink and you’ll miss it). Timberlake’s first album in six years will arrive on March 19 featuring production from Timbaland.
“What I came up with is something I couldn’t be more excited about! It is full of inspiration that I grew up listening to and some newfound muses that I’ve discovered along the way,” he previously told his fans in an open letter.
