Justin Timberlake is serious about his style, and the new lyrics video for his single, "Suit & Tie," is proof.
The song, written by Timberlake and Jay-Z along with Timbaland, Jerome “J-ROC” Harmon and James Flauntleroy, is a playful offering of an elevated experience to a love interest.
Timberlake plays the "suit and tied" gentleman in the clip, which uses animation to emphasize the horns on the track as the lyrics bounce across the frame. Conceptually, it sounds like it could be an eyesore, but the production is as sharp and seamless as Timberlake's wardrobe in the video.
If you've heard the song, the lead single from his upcoming album "The 20/20 Experience," you know that the lyrics aren't nearly as clean as the singer's accessories, so if you watch the clip below be forewarned that it contains strong language.
"Suit & Tie" has been performing well since Timberlake released the song earlier this month. Billboard reports the single is now at No. 4 on the Hot 100, and it's at No. 2 on the Digital Songs chart with 315,000 downloads in its first week.
