REUTERS Justin Timberlake releases video for "Suit & Tie"
"Here it is... All pressed up in black and white. Enjoy! #officialvideo #suitandtie #JT2013," he tweeted on Valentine's Day.
It's been seven years since we've heard new music from Justin -- but now that he's back, he's taking the music world again by storm with a series of high-profile appearances, including a pre-Super Bowl show, a Grammy performance, and a reported tour with Jay-Z later in the year.
Definitely worth the wait, the song is the first single from his highly-anticipated comeback album, The 20/20 Experience.
The clip is shot in black and white, perfectly capturing the essence of the song's seductive lyrics and Justin's sultry vocals.
With a slowed-down intro, the video opens with the former 'N Sync member sitting at the piano and hanging out with featured artist Jay-Z while eating cereal. Looking dapper in a clean-cut suit, he then hits the stage and shows off his suave dance moves in an art deco-style theatre, replete with a nightclub band and backup dancers, taking us back to Frank Sinatra days.
Following is Jay-Z's rap interlude which gives the groove a little extra sizzle, with him taking center stage and a sexy lady wearing far less than a suit doing her thing. There's also a bit of trampoline action as well as some splash dancing towards the end.
Meanwhile, the rapper and R&B singer are rumored to be taking their working relationship a step further than the single, with the pair planning a major stadium tour in ten cities according to New York Post.
JT also hinted on Twitter that something is on the works, saying, "Big news coming out... Stay tuned or you'll miss it!"
