Riff: Justin Timberlake – “Suit and Tie”

Jan 22, 2013

I can’t wait til I get you on the floor, good-looking/Going out so hot, just like an oven

from Suit and Tie lyrics by Justin Timberlake

JT’s last two LPs virtually revolutionised the pop landscape. Which is why it’s such a crushing disappointment that he’s returned after a seven-year hiatus with a mediocre R&B track, full of lazy boasts about his sexual prowess on the dancefloor, that could easily be mistaken for a Justified leftover.

    Yet again it looks as though no one agrees with your over-wordy opinions. Go talk about someone you like Mr. Debbie Downer.
