So, what do you think of Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie”?
Last week, Justin Timberlake nearly sent the internet crashing to its knees by suddenly announcing that he was “ready” to release new music for the first time in SEVEN YEARS. Upon hearing the news, we rocked our bodies, reacted in GIFs, cried rivers of joy, and may or may not have relived the early aughts with some old-school *NSYNC. Not that we don’t love *actor* Justin, but there’s really nothing like watching the pop master at work, ya know? And as his countdown clock promised, Justin’s brand-new Jay-Z-assisted, Timbaland-produced jam “Suit & Tie” arrived this morning, along with an open letter to his fans promising an upcoming third solo album, The 20/20 Experience. (Also, you realize JT totally just one-upped the 2013 Golden Globes, right?) Since then, many fans have weighed in on “Suit & Tie,” and reactions have ranged from borderline religious ecstasy to tepid intrigue. Now, all we want to know is, was it worth the wait?
Tell us how you liked Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” after the jump.
That’s right, we said it. Was Justin’s “Suit & Tie” worth the wait? Did the song’s retro horns soothe your soul? Or did they grind your gears? Was Justin and Jay-Z’s ode to a sharp, Alexander Wang or Tom Ford three-piece gratuitous? Or was it the sexy club banger you’ve been waiting all your life for? Did it live up to seven years of musical silence? Or should Justin stick to playing “couch trampoline” in People magazine and impersonating Sean Parker? Tell us below!
