While lyric videos are usually as exciting as studying 18th century Bavarian tax code, Justin Timberlake dresses up the concept in this clip for his comeback single, “Suit & Tie”.
In what could easily be a new ad for Cotton’s Fabric Of Our Lives campaign, Timberlake struts around in an immaculate suit, playing the piano and mugging for the camera, while lyrics pop up in clever places, like on their respective objects or JT’s buttocks. Now you can sing the song perfectly while you contemplate how utterly inferior you are to Mr. Jessica Biel. Enjoy!
“Suit & Tie” is Timberlake’s first new song in six years, and the lead single to his forthcoming album, The 20/20 Experience, apparently due out March 19th. According to previous reports, Timberlake recorded at least 20 new tracks with the No. 1 in his real top 8, Timbaland, who serves as the album’s producer.
And if the video got you wanting to see Timberlake rock a suit live, then you’re in luck. As The Hollywood Reporter points out, he’ll perform “Suit & Tie” at a DirectTV Super Bowl event on Saturday, February 2nd. So, if you’re gonna be down in The Big Easy, head here for tickets and info.
