In its second week of release, “Suit and Tie” skyrocketed from 84-4 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. With a newly-dropped lyric video, I fully expect Justin Timberlake’s comeback single to climb even further. Typically, song’s lyrics flashing about in some wicked graphics fashion is the norm for these type of clips, but JT bucks that trend and appears in it. Looking pretty damn fine I might add.
Directed by Laban Phedias, Timberlake is the essence of laid-back cool in the video. Just in case you were wondering what kind of suit and tie, the 31-year-old singer prefer, it’s Tom Ford. The designer’s threads (and label) are prominently displayed throughout. Can we expect a flood of product placement in future lyric videos by artists now? I digress. If this is a small teaser of what the actual music video is, bring it on now. I’m so ready for the 20/20 Experience. I can’t wait. Check out the dashing Timberlake bringing his sexy back below. Welcome back JT.
What do you think of the lyric video? Is “Suit and Tie” growing on you? What’s your favorite suit and tie combo? Tom Ford or Men’s Wearhouse or something in between? Sound off below.
