Soooooo excited! Justin Timberlake is finally ready to come back to music. Let’s be honest, no one has done it quite like Justin in the past few years so it’s safe to say that we missed him! He has been teasing us on twitter the past few days… but today he released the first single off of his new album!! The good news is, the single features Jay-Z, the great news is, he is still collaborating with Timbaland!
“Suit & Tie” featuring JAY Z was written by Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Shawn Carter, Jerome “J-ROC” Harmon and James Flauntleroy and produced by Timbaland, Justin himself and Jerome “J-ROC” Harmon.
The song is the first release off Timberlake’s forthcoming album, The 20/20 Experience, due out later this year on RCA Records. The song is a little all-over the place with the beat, but leave it to Justin and Timbaland to give us something that doesn’t make since and then make us like it!
Take A Listen Here:
In addition to releasing his first single, he also wrote a letter to his fans, to explain what’s been going on in his silly head. Read Below:
An Open Letter to you (the fans):
I hope this gets to you the right way. It’s the only way I know to do it. Some people may criticize me for the last 3 days. But it was fun, right?? Right?!?! Besides, I’d rather speak directly to all of you. And, who can knock me for having a little bit of fun with it?
Well… No more teasing. Although, it was A LOT of fun. (Did I mention that I’m having fun with this?? Ha!)
*Makes a serious face*
So, here goes:
This year is an exciting one for me. As you probably have heard through the “grapevine,” I’m gearing up for a big 2013.
Back in June of last year, I quietly started working on what is now, my next journey with that thing I love called MUSIC.
The inspiration for this really came out of the blue and to be honest, I didn’t expect anything out of it. I just went into the studio and started playing around with some sounds and songs. It was probably the best time I’ve had in my career… Just creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process.
What I came up with is something I couldn’t be more excited about! It is full of inspiration that I grew up listening to and some newfound muses that I’ve discovered along the way.
I’m calling it “The 20/20 Experience,” and it’s coming out this year.
I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.
That’s all I’m giving you for now… I know, I know! Again, with the teasing!!!
Get ready. This is going to be fun (well, at least it is for me).
The song is available on iTunes today. Love you on SNL Justin, like you doing movies, but can not wait to see you on tour!!! Welcome Back JT!!!
