Rap mogul Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake are getting the New Year started in style as new photos from their “Suit & Tie” music video shoot have surfaced online.
Although details on the visual’s location are still unknown, a handufl of on-set photos are now circulating across the Internet.
Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z have ditched the suit jackets and loosened the ties…for the moment. The talented twosome behind JT’s new “Suit & Tie” single were caught goofing around on the set of the video for the song, which appears to take seriously the need to dress right for a night out with that special someone. (Or perhaps a day out at the inauguration?) (E! Online)
A few days ago, the “Suit & Tie” lyrics video teaser landed online.
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 last week claimed JT’s 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)
Recently, former Dirty Money singer Dawn Richard hit up SOHH with her reaction to Timberlake coming back to take over the music game.
“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)
