Justin Timberlake Unwraps ‘Suit & Tie’ Lyric Video, Album Date: No Sign Of Jay-Z

The official lyric video for Justin Timberlake’s already released first single “Suit & Tie” has arrived.

In addition, towards the end of the black and white video the date for his highly anticipated new album — The 20/20 Experience — is revealed as March 19.

The release of lyric videos before fuller unveilings seems to be a recent twist on traditional music marketing, see Prince’s just released “Screwdriver” among others.

A drip-feed strategy saw Timberlake drop a “I’m Ready” video on January 10 to announce his comeback. The follow-up was a tweet from the singer on Sunday to a website and three black and white studio photos of him recording 20/20.

Now, after a six year hiatus during which Timberlake explored his thespian side, and recently married Jessica Biel, “Suit & Tie” received a midnight release on January 14.

Featuring Jay-Z, Timberlake’s customary falsetto, horns, scattered beats and an addictive hook, the song debuted on Billboard’s Pop Songs chart at number 14, having received the most first week plays in the chart’s 20 year history, and set a record as the highest debut by a male artist.
