Justin Timberlake and Jay Z's New Song 'Suit and Tie' Brings Sexy Back, Again

Justin Timberlake has officially revealed his latest single, “Suit and Tie.” The song, already number one on iTunes, can also be listened to Timberlake's official website.

In an open letter to the fans, the former N’Sync member also revealed that his latest album, titled The 20/20 Experience, will be released later this year. This will be the third album of Justin Timberlake’s solo career, following his last musical offering, the wildly popular FutureSex/LoveSounds, back in 2006.

Originally rumored to also feature pop sensation Beyonce, the song offers the musical talents of rapper Jay-Z. The new album was also co-written and co-produced by Timbaland, who was also responsible for the aforementioned FutureSex/LoveSounds.

Regarding the actual composition of the song, Timberlake states, “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.”

On a related note, Beyonce has still stated that she is collaborating with Timberlake and Timbaland on some project, stating “We all started in the '90s, when R&B was the most important genre, and we all kind of want that back: the feeling that music gave us.”

Timberlake has not revealed any more information, claiming, “That's all I'm giving you for now ... I know, I know! Again, with the teasing!!!” However, considering the fact that an entire song has now been revealed, fans should expect the release date to be fairly close.
