As a bonus below is a lyric video (much better that the ‘real’ video) for the first single off of the 20/20 experience Suite & Tie which also features Jay-Z. The song is alright but This video really adds the style and flare to it.

Justin Timberlake – Suite & Tie (ft. Jay-Z)

DOWNLOAD MP3 JustinTimberlake-SuitTieftJayZ.mp3
Summary: Basically a Pop song (sorry for all the recent pop) but I like style of it, Justin’s voice doesn’t hurt either. The video really adds a lot and in fact I didn’t really like the song at all until I saw the video
About Artist:  Justin Timberlake, ever heard of him? Formerly NSYNC, currently one of the sexiest men alive. Jay-Z reigning king of hip hop. And this song was produced by longtime veteran, heavy hitter, and music legend Timbaland. Each artist has their own dynasty of music so expectations for this song were pretty high.
About Song: It seems like this song will be a single off of Justin Timberlake’s hiiiighly anticipated upcoming album 20/20. The song isn’t extremely excited but the video adds a lot and you can feel some of Timbalands style on the beat.
Favorite Part: I just love hearing Justin Timberlake sing
“Let me show a few things”

“…Ass tight demin and some dunks.
I show how to do this young.
No papers, catch vapors
Gettin high, out in Vegas

Tell your mother that I love heExplainr cause I love you
Tell your father we go farther as a couple
They ain’t lose a daughter, got a son
I show you how to do this, hun!”
(3:49)

I also found it very interesting how the track switched up completely for Jay-Z verse and how much darker the sound and lyrically his part of the song was compared to  most of the song where Justin Timberlake’s is singing carefree.
