For weeks, Justin Timberlake fans have been buzzing, about his new (hell, it’s been five years) song, ‘Suit & Tie’, featuring Jay-Z. As the song suggests, photogs caught the pair, suited and booted, on set (in the rain), in Los Angeles filming the video.
So before we hop into it, here’s the skinny–for the video nerds (*raises hands*). The video was directed by David Fincher, the same dude that directed Justin in the movie ‘The Social Network’ (remember, that was the film about Facebook and it’s founder Mark Zuckerberg), Fight Club, Panic Room, etc. Anywho, the video is shot in black and white (similar to their GRAMMYs performance) and features the two doing ‘normal people stuff’ (eating cereal, watching basketball, etc.) to ‘rich and famous people stuff’ (like studio recording and performing on stage with full bands and whatnot). And for you lyric fans, here’s Jay-Z’s verse.
All black at the white shows
White shoes at the black shows
Green card for the Cuban links
Y’all sit back and enjoy the light show
Nothing exceeds like the excess
Stoute got gout from having the best of the best
Is this what it’s all about?
I’m at the restaurant with my rant
Disturbing the guests
Years of distress, tears on the dress
Try to hide her face with some makeup sex
This is truffle season
Tom Ford tuxedos for no reason
All saints for my angel
Alexander Wang too
Ass-tight Denim and some Dunks
I’ll show you how to do this young!
No papers, catch vapors
Get high, out Vegas
Who says the devils ain’t looking for trouble
You just got good genes so a nigga tryna cuff you
Tell your mother that I love her cause I love you
Tell your father we go farther as a couple
They ain’t lose a daughter, got a son
I show you how to do this, hun!
Anywho…here’s the video.
