Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z Release Suit & Tie Video
The soulful track shows Justin where he's most comfortable: onstage and in the studio behind the microphone.
The video for "Suit & Tie" is an excellent throwback to 1920s jazz and swing music. Not a major shift from his performance at this year's GRAMMYs, Justin embodies the character of a Big Band leader from the way he conducts his band in the studio and onstage to his slicked back hairstyle. Shot in black and white, it's easy to picture Justin putting on a Brat Pack era, old Vegas show complete with a choreographed tie routine and backup dancers.
Directed by David Fincher, this isn't the duo's first collaboration. Fincher first directed JT in The Social Network. Known for his films including Fight Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Seven, Fincher is no stranger to producing music videos. While he's had his focus on films over the past few years, this is his first music video in eight years. more
