After that hesitant, dramatic semi-announcement that he was returning to music, you might expect Justin Timberlake to play it low-key.
You know, release a single here, perform at a private charity Super Bowl party there.
But no - the almost 32-year-old, who celebrates his birthday Thursday, isn't staying small-time with his comeback. He's taking his return tour to the Grammys.
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.
With his new single selling well, Justin Timberlake is easing back into performing.
The actor/musician will be a special guest at DirecTV's pre-Super Bowl "Super Saturday Night" event on February 2, which will be co-hosted by Mark Cuban. Questlove will also be on deck to keep the crowd grooving before and after Timberlake's set. It's unknown what he'll perform, but we're guessing his new song with Jay-Z, "Suit & Tie," is up for consideration.
Timberlake's appearance at the "Super Saturday Night" shindig will be his first concert in nearly five years, and it'll be for a good cause. His show is solely to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children, according to a statement.
Unfortunately, only those invited to the private "Super Saturday Night" party will get to see Timberlake perform; tickets aren't available for purchase.
As he hinted last week, Justin Timberlake has indeed delivered a new single via his website.
Called "Suit & Tie," the song also features Jay-Z, who shares writing credits with Timberlake, Timbaland, Jerome “J-ROC” Harmon and James Flauntleroy.
Produced by Timberlake, Timbaland and J-Roc, "Suit & Tie" is also the first single from Timberlake's first album in almost seven years, which he's calling "The 20/20 Experience."
Now that we're done hyperventilating and collectively freaking out, we can talk about Justin Timberlake's announcement that he's back in business. The music business, to be precise.
A rep for the newly married entertainer said in August that Timberlake didn't have new solo music in the works, despite rumors to the contrary. But it would appear that in 2013 Timberlake is changing his tune.
She’s got two movies opening on Friday, but Jessica Biel seems to be settling into married life just as any other newlywed might.
And the best part about being legally wed to Justin Timberlake?
“It means always having someone there to open the pickle jar…to share the ups and downs with, have adventures with. Someone to go swimming naked with. That kind of thing,” she said in an interview with Elle.
