Yeah, so another artist from the Aughts put out a comeback single of sorts. But, unlike the one earlier this week, JT’s “Suit & Tie” is worth hearing more than once. You can hear the song on his site, or you can stream it below.
The good news is, this song’s old-school. He ain’t looking to the future with this, but instead going to music before he was born. (Ya know, the good stuff.) Horns aplenty and infectious synths swirl around a simple snare-based beat. It’s great stuff.
The bad news is, shockingly, the Jay-Z guest spot. Sure, he’s still got it, but it’s an uninteresting verse about dressing well and wedding-related stuff. Eh. His sheer force of will makes the verse a close-enough fit next to Justin’s musical sex.
The single is apparently from an upcoming album The 20/20 Experience, which will be out this year.
