Riff: Justin Timberlake – “Suit & Tie”

Jan 22, 2013

I be on my suit and tie shit, tie shit/Can I show you a few things?

from Suit & Tie lyrics by Justin Timberlake

Forty slothful seconds and 2013′s greatest neologism later and Timberlake’s back to indulging in a mid-90s soak of falsetto and finger clicks. But the trousersnake’s tie party is gatecrashed by Jay-Z, who turns designer salesman in a rap spot which ironically cheapens the otherwise sumptuous affair.
