For an album which appeared as if would never come to fruition this time last year, the current hurricane of promotion from Justin Timberlake is a shining example of “night and day.” First was the announcement. Second was the announcement that there was another announcement. Third was the actual “comeback record” in the Jay-Z-featured “Suit & Tie.” Fourth provided the lyrics video. Now, fifth, J.T. gives the official video for “Suit…”
The picture and the visual reflect it all at this point. Life is grand for Jay and Justin. The drinks are cold. The wives are beautiful. Most importantly, the music promotes itself. “Suit and Tie” was not exactly the grand slam I was expecting this time three weeks ago. Not that it matters though.
Come March 19, I’m still listening to The 20/20 Experience fully expecting a third classic.
