Looks like Justin Timberlake‘s looking to bring more than sexy back if his latest single is anything to judge by!
A mid-tempo groove similar to his early 2000’s hit ‘Senorita’, Timberlake enlists the help of rapper/mogul Jay Z for ‘Suit & Tie’ – his Timbaland-produced return to charts. The first song lifted from his yet-titled follow-up to 2006’s ‘FutureSex LoveSounds’, the song hasn’t been available on Itunes for 30 minutes yet and is already skyrocketing up the digital charts.
Teasing his highly anticipated return for the last week or so, you tell us: is this just what the doctor ordered to heal those in desperate need for a fix of Justin? Take a listen to the new
Robin Thicke joint below:
Not exactly what we were expecting from the long-awaited sessions of Timberlake and Timbaland, but we must say – we like. Timberlake shows off his much missed brand of confidence and cool in the horn-heavy number (something we’re certainly not hearing from popular radio). But, in this electro-pop dominated climate, many were sure J.T. would take the obvious route and produce numbers similar to those from his 2006 LP.
While we do long for the ‘Sexy Back’ and ‘My Love’ -esque joints, we can tap our feet to this. Let’s hope though that this is just a taste of what his next set is offering and not fully representative of its tracklisting. For, while fans may miss ol’ JT, the inevitable Justin Bieber comparisons are looming. So, it helps to make records that will appeal to the diehard 2002 Timberlake fanbase as well as the new, up-and-coming 2012 (and beyond) fanbase.
