What do you get when you combine Justin Timberlake, Tom Ford, Jay-Z and David Fincher? The brand new "Suit & Tie" music video, also known as J.T.'s Valentine's Day gift to all the ladies of the world.
Yes, Timberlake has made us wait a while for his big return to music, but this video shows that the wait was worth it. Black and white, old school charm and that special style that only Fincher (director of Fight Club and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) can create are just a few of qualities that made us melt while watching "Suit & Tie" the first time. Watch it now!
So be warned, melting is unavoidable. But upon a second viewing, we realized that Timberlake has brought back everything we missed about his music. The video is very similar to his Grammys performance (likely an intentional decision), but with an added flair. Here we see Timberlake prepping for his performance, Jay-Z waiting in the wings to come on and sing and the epic band jiving behind them. Seriously, Timberlake and Fincher nailed it.
Also, drooling over how sexy these men look in their suits and ties? Well, you have Tom Ford to thank for that. He costumed the entire video, and goodness does that man know how to make a suit. He also dressed up the ladies, who get their time in the spotlight quite literally towards the end of the video.
If we were to breakdown this video to grade its sexiness, swank, creativity and JTims' dancing, we'd have to give everything a five because "Suit & Tie" really is that topnotch, so for now suffice to say that Timberlake brings sexy back. And yes, them other boys still don't know how to act.
