Even from this brief preview, we can tell Justin’s new video is sending two messages: He’s back — and he’s damn smooth.
While Justin Bieber is shamelessly grabbing people’s attention by taking off his clothes, a far classier Justin is turning heads by putting clothes on. The first look at Justin Timberlake‘s new music video for “Suit & Tie” was released Jan. 23, and in the spirit of the song, its video finds the former *NSYNC-er getting all dressed up with nowhere to go.
The full music video for Justin’s first single in seven years debuts Jan. 24 at 6 a.m. — you know, so the roosters can enjoy it — but for now, we can just enjoy this little laste. There’s no sign of Jay-Z in the teaser, but I think it’s safe to assume he’ll make his own suit-and-tied appearance in the full video.
Justin Timberlake’s Career Comeback
Justin’s announcement that he would be returning to the music world came as a surprise, but not without fanfare.
“Thursday, January 10th, 2013 at 9:01 am PST…” he tweeted Jan. 9, sending his 15 million+ followers into a frenzy of anticipation. And Justin made good on his promise the next day, releasing a cryptic video of himself:
“I’ve only done two albums in 10 years,” he says in the black-and-white video. “What does the next decade mean for me? … I don’t want to put anything out that I feel is something I don’t love. You just don’t get that every day. You have to wait for it. … I’m ready.”
And we’re ready too, Justin!
Watch the 30-second “Suit & Tie” teaser below, and if you feel ling being extra crazy, you can pretend he’s getting ready for his wedding to you! (Not that we did that, or anything…)
