Even if it hadn’t been made by Justin Timberlake, a song named Suit & Tie (feat. Jay-Z) is probably the best name for a song that there’s ever been. But it was made by Justin, and watching the new, David Fincher-directed video makes you happy it was – who else in the world would look as suave in that suit and tie as he does?
The video is gorgeous, and doesn’t attempt to hide its gloss. Highlight one: around the three minute mark, Hov gets out of his seat and approaches the mic in a way that’s so ice cool it seems effortless, although it was probably choreographed to a tee. Highlight two: by the end, the video descends into meaningless visual excess, with JT dancing around in a pool of water that came from nowhere for no real reason other than the fact that he can. And it’s ace.
