This morning everyone's buzzing about last night's Golden Globes, but I'm focused on my main guy Justin Timberlake. It's been six years since JT released FutureSex/LoveSounds and stole my heart with "Summer Love." He's back today with "Suit & Tie," a laid-back track featuring Jay-Z that, frankly, has left me underwhelmed.
Listen, I'm about as big of a fan of Justin's as a woman in her mid-20s can admit to being. I was stoked to hear Justin would be releasing new music while staring at the JT snow globe on my desk (yes, I'm serious). I was elated to find out that his upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience, would drop this year. With that said, "Suit & Tie" just doesn't live up to my expectations.
Is it good? Yes. Justin's voice hasn't missed a beat after taking time off. Listeners hear the smooth, suave JT that they fell in love with when he went solo in the first place. It pains me to say this, though, but Justin -- I was hoping for better.
