Justin Timberlake Performs New Music At Super Bowl Party

By 02.03.13

Justin Timberlake can’t seem to do any wrong in his comeback to the music game. After releasing his new single “Suit & Tie” seemingly out of nowhere–and watching it shoot to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 in its first week–he quickly followed it up with an announcement of a fast-approaching new album, The 20/20 Experience, his first LP in more than six years.

With fans already clamoring for the release, JT is keeping busy ahead of the March 19 release date: there’s a video for “Suit & Tie” in the works with acclaimed director David Fincher, Timberlake will hit the stage a week from today at the Grammys, and there remains a tour and probably more singles to come.

Musically, “Suit & Tie” was a definite change of pace for the modern pop landscape, but if it was perhaps a bit loungy for some, footage from Timberlake’s gig at Mark Cuban’s DirectTV Super Bowl party should be reasonably assuring. Along with delivering a rendition of the album’s first single with help from an in-the-flesh Jay-Z, Justin also previewed two brand new songs–“Pusher Love Girl” and “That Girl”–presumably from The 20/20 Experience. Bolstered by JT’s in-form vocals and a decked out backing band, the retro inspired, soul-drenched numbers sound, well, pretty damn awesome.
