Seven long years have passed since JT’s last opus, FutureSex/LoveSounds, and it seemed as though our favorite member of ‘N Sync has left the music world forever in favor of the big screen. But the wait is over and Justin is back with new song “Suit & Tie” featuring JAY Z. Just days after a vague video announcement of his return went viral, Justin premiered the single, which will be lifted off of his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience. Have a listen (and download while it’s available) below:

The song starts off with a repetitive intro and quickly changes pace into an upbeat, toe-tappy track. It infuses pop and R&B seamlessly and in a way that sets this apart from typical radio-friendly tracks. JAY Z slows things down during his feature and showcases his rap skills, as per usual. The song seems like it will be a grower, but still peaks our interest as to what else Justin has planned for the new year.
The track is out now and is also available for purchase here, if you’re into that sort of thing.
