R&B singer Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z and Timbaland are giving fans a little taste of what's in store for them with the new "Suit & Tie" music video by releasing a teaser this week.
Although there is no exact release date for the real music video, JT provides temporary satisfaction with his new lyrics clip.
Justin Timberlake invaded the interwebs last week with his new track "Suit & Tie" and today he returns with a teaser for the upcoming lyric video. The short clip gives us just a brief taste of what we can expect from the clip in which Mr. Timberlake gets dressed up in his finest 'Suit & Tie' while the lyrics of the track flash across our screen in various locations. The clip goes rather nicely with the track, and gives the track a fresher feel. Check out the teaser after the jump and stay tuned for the whole thing when it drops soon. (Stupid Dope)
Reports this week claim his smash hit has already sold over 300,000 copies.
Justin Timberlake scores the Hot 100's lone new top 10, as "Suit & Tie" rockets to No. 4 from its No. 84 debut last week. The lead single from his forthcoming album The 20/20 Experience storms onto Hot Digital Songs at No. 2 with 315,000 first-week downloads sold. As previously reported, the total marks Timberlake's best sales week for a download, besting the 250,000-unit start of his seven-week Hot 100 No. 1 "SexyBack" in 2006. (Billboard Biz)
A few days ago, former Dirty Money singer Dawn Richard hit up SOHH with her reaction to JT coming back to take over the music game once again.
"I think it's legendary and the reason why I say that is because he's managed to rest and take a break in such a way where he was successful in something completely different. He created a craft in acting, really was successful in that and then to be able to come back in such a way, and do it in such a classy way, the way he did it, that's legendary in itself," Dawn told SOHH, referring to JT. "He did it in a way where you weren't oversaturated, which was perfect. You stay out the game and then came back with a new sound, a new plan and you can always respect someone who has a plan like that." (SOHH)
The "Suit & Tie" track officially premiered online earlier this month.
Mr. "SexyBack" is back. Justin Timberlake released his new single, "Suit and Tie," late Sunday night. It features rapper Jay-Z. The upbeat jam is the 31-year-old's first musical offering since 2006's critically acclaimed "FutureSex/LoveSounds." His third solo album, "The 20/20 Experience," will be out later this year. Timberlake co-wrote and co-produced "Suit and Tie" with Timbaland, who produced much of the Grammy-winning "FutureSex/LoveSounds." (Detroit Free Press)
