I’m taking It’s Blogworthy back old school, like WAY old school, like early 2002 when the first notes of Seniorita made their way into my ear canals. That’s right, today I’ll be recapping the new Justin Timberlake song, Suit&Tie, released Sunday night. This is the first new Justin Timberlake song since 2006, y’all, and you’d better believe I’m excited You can take a girl out of her 20s, but you can’t take “her 20s” out of the girl, you know what I mean (of course you do — don’t lie, you still have that sequin tube top in the dark spaces of your closet.)
I’m starting the new Justin Timberlake Song, Suit&Tie, right now and I’ll give you my thoughts as they pop into my head.
- This is some babymakin’ music right here.
- HE SAID A WORDY DIRD. Add this one to a list of songs Kelsey shouldn’t’ be playing for students at school.
- What’s with the deep voice in the background, sounds like a monster.
- Oh, tempo change up in this jam!
- This is possibly Robin Thicke pretending to be Justin Timberlake (Thank you @LindsTRfor that little epiphany.)
- “Go on and show them who you call Daddy.”
- I’m dancing in my seat to this new Justin Timberlake song. That’s a good sign, also I hope nobody notices.
- Oh, listen, it’s Jay-Z!
- “Tell your mother that I love her cause I love you.” – Jay-Z
- I dont’ think they can play this on the radio.
- There are so many sounds in this song….horns…finger snaps…drums… possibly a cat crying.
- Oh, there’s a xylophone.
- Gosh, I remember back in 2002, I used to love dancing to Seniorita! The one line dance we used to do fit perfect with it. I wish I could remember those line dances…I wish I still looked like I did in 2002…
- Oh, wait, it’s still on.
- AND scene.
Overall, I liked the new Justin Timberlake song. This isn’t Justified or Future Sex/Love Sounds, although I think there are parts of both those albums in it. It’s well thought out and impeccably produced. I’m excited to see what his new album (which will be called The 20/20 Experience) will sound like.
I used to notlike Justin Timberlake in the *NSYNC days…in fact, I made it quite clear that he was my least favorite member; I hated how much everyone loved him, which doesn’t make any sense. I have to say, now that I’m far removed from my boyband days, I can appreciate Justin Timberlake much more. The guy can do anything. He’s a good actor; he’s a great producer; he still can put out singles that make me move; he’s funny; and he seems to be having fun with what he does, which I believe comes through in his music.
Time will tell if this is going to take off. Part of me thinks that the ship has sailed; the hardcore fans of his past might be past this, and it’s a bit too sophisticated for young fans.
I’m no critic; just a girl who has a soft spot for new Justin Timberlake songs, so I give it a 5/5 — anything that makes me feel 22 again has to be good.
What did you think of the new Justin Timberlake song?
