Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Akhirnya! Justin Timberlake memutuskan untuk kembali ke skena yang membesarkan namanya, musik. Tujuh tahun setelah album keduanya, FutureSex/LoveSounds, ia akan menghadirkan album yang berjudul The 20/20 Experience. Sebagai pemanasan ia pun merilis single yang berjudul Suit & Tie. Tentu saja sulit untuk menghindatkan euforia akan kehadiran single ini. Namun, apakah JT, demikian ia biasa disebut, masih sakti dalam memberikan lagu pop-RnB yang memikat?

Masih dibantu oleh Timbaland sebagai produser, single midtempo RnB yang cozy dan suave ini menghadirkan Jay-Z sebagai teman nge-rap. Trademark JT masih melekat di sini, termasuk falsetto seksinya, namun tetap terdengar menyegarkan.

Akan tetapi Suit & Tie tidak melulu mengandalkan formula tersebut, karena JT menghadirkan sesuatu yang baru disini, retro-soul yang meski terdengar vintage namun entah mengapa bisa terdengar menyatu dengan sound urban yang menjadi latar belakang utama Suit & Tie.

Timbaland sebagai produser, menghadirkan kejutan tersendiri, karena kali ini ia meminggirkan beat-beat elektro-pop menggebu dan memilih membalut Suit & Tie dengan alur yang lebih tenang. Bahkan di awal, Suit & Tie malah hadir dengan sangat lambat, mengindikasikan jika ini adalah single soul yang lembut. Sampai kemudian memasuki detik ke 43, ritme tiba-tiba berubah menjadi lebih bertenaga, meski dalam tempo yang bergerak tidak terlalu kencang. Terompet dan harpa memberi aksen groovy ala pop-soul 70-an.

JT adalah gaya dalam bermusik. Demikian juga dengan Suit & Tie. Elegan sekaligus Hip. Kontemporer namun klasik. Seksi dengan tanpa kehilangan maskulinitasnya. Vokal JT terdengar begitu menggoda dan menggairahkan dan ia sukses untuk mengajak pendengar larut dalam buaiannya. Oh yes, Suit & Tie is still classic JT, but we can deny he still able to delivers the soul.

Suit & Tie menjadi ajang pembuktian jika seorang Justin Timberlake merupakan nama yang bisa diandalkan dalam lagu yang memiliki komposisi juara dan berkelas. Jeda sekian lama tak menyurutkan semangat musikalitasnya yang tinggi dan membuktikan jika ia memang merupakan sosok terkemuka yang kehadiran album terbarunya sangat layak untuk dinantikan.

Bravo Justin Timberlake.

LYRIC
[Intro: Justin Timberlake]
I be on my suit and tie, shit tie, shit tie
I be on my suit and tie, shit tie, shit
Can I show you a few things, a few things, a few things, little baby?
‘Cause…
I be on my suit and tie, shit tie, shit
I be on my suit and tie, shit tie, shit
Let me show you a few things
Let me show you a few things

Wait a minute. You ready, JT?

[Verse 1: Justin Timberlake]
I can’t wait ’til I get you on the floor, good-looking
Going out so hot, just like an oven
And I’ll burn myself, but just had to touch it
It’s so fire and it’s all mine
Hey baby, we don’t mind all the watching
Cause if they study close, real close
They might learn something
She ain’t nothing but a little doozie when she does it
She’s so fire tonight

[Hook: Justin Timberlake]
And as long as I got my suit and tie
I’ma leave it all on the floor tonight
And you got fixed up to the nines
Let me show you a few things
All pressed up in black and white
And you’re dressed in that dress I like
Love is swinging in the air tonight
Let me show you a few things
Let me show you a few things
Show you a few things about love
While we’re in the swing of love
Let me show you a few things
Show you a few things about love
Hey

[Verse 2: Justin Timberlake]
Stop, let me get a good look at it
Oh, so thick, now I know why they call it a fatty
And aww, shit so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit
But that’s alright, cause you’re all mine
Awww, go on and show ‘em who you call daddy
I guess they’re just mad cause girl, they wish they had it
Oh, my killer, my thriller, yeah you’re a classic
And you’re all mine tonight

[Hook: Justin Timberlake]
And as long as I got my suit and tie
I’ma leave it all on the floor tonight
And you got fixed up to the nines
Let me show you a few things
All pressed up in black and white
And you’re dressed in that dress I like
Love is swinging in the air tonight
Let me show you a few things
Let me show you a few things
Show you a few things about love
While we’re in the swing of love
Let me show you a few things
Show you a few things about love
Hey

Get out your seat, Hov

[Verse 3: Jay-Z]
All black at the white shows
White shoes at the black shows
Green card for the Cuban links
Y’all sit back and enjoy the light show
Nothing exceeds like excess
Stoute got gout from having the best of the best
Is this what it’s all about?
I’m at the restaurant
My rant disturbing the guests
Years of distress, tears on the dress
Trying to hide her face with some make up sex
This is truffle season
Time for tuxedos for no reason
All Saints for my angel
Alexander Wang too
Ass-tight Denim and some Dunks
I’ll show you how to do this young!
No papers, catch vapors
Get high, out Vegas
D’usses on doubles, ain’t looking for trouble
You just got good genes so a nigga trying to cuff you
Tell your mother that I love her cause I love you
Tell your father we go farther as a couple
They ain’t lose a daughter, got a son
I show you how to do this, hun!

[Hook: Justin Timberlake]
And as long as I got my suit and tie
I’ma leave it all on the floor tonight
And you got fixed up to the nines
Let me show you a few things
All pressed up in black and white
And you’re dressed in that dress I like
Love is swinging in the air tonight
Let me show you a few things
Let me show you a few things
Show you a few things about love
Let me show you a few things
Show you a few things about love, hey
Oh…
