Let’s have a moment of silence for the return of Justin Timberlake to music……..
Awwwww yes! To sit here and attempt to describe my love for JT would be verbose and well, embarrassing…so let me just say I am a MASSIVE fangirl of the former ‘NSyncer. Much like the days of NKOTB t-shirts (specifically Joey McIntyre – yep, sheets, buttons, shirts…I had everything) and high pitch shrills, I grew up with JT from the Mickey Mouse club to FutureSex/LoveSounds to Suit & Tie. Oh and not to mention he is probably one of the best live performers I’ve ever been fortunate to see. Incredible! Okay drooling…done…
I’ve always held on to a shred of hope that Justin wasn’t done with music, just merely taking a break to get the creative juices flowing again. So when his countdown video premiered I was more than excited for the debut of his latest single. When I first heard Suit & Tie my expectations were so high I didn’t really know how to react. Is this what I expected? Do I love it? Am I disappointed? Countless plays later I can say I absolutely love it!
From the Timbaland laced intro, throwback R&B hook, and Justin’s Robin Thicke-esque vocals over JAY Z’s stellar appearance, yep it pretty much has everything I would expect from a JT track. So while everyone else hates on how “dated” the track might be or not “2013 pop” enough it is I’ll just sit back and enjoy one of my favorite artist’s return to music.
What do you think of the new single?
