Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z Shoot ‘Suit & Tie’ Video in Los Angeles
It looks like Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy and sophistication back with his new single, ‘Suit & Tie.’ The singer and the song’s co-star, Jay-Z, were in Los Angeles filming the video for the Timberland-produced track on Friday (Jan. 25).
Judging by the on-set photos that surfaced online, the clip will most likely feature tuxedos, three-piece suits and wing-tip shoes just like Timberlake’s lyric video. In the pictures, we see JT holding an umbrella over Jay’s head as they casually walk back to their trailers. The photos resemble Farnsworth Bentley holding an umbrella over Diddy‘s head when they were in Cannes, France.
Hov seems to be enjoying Timberlake’s shenanigans as the duo walk along surrounded by burly bodyguards. Rumor has it that acclaimed filmmaker David Fincher is directing the music video, which is a big deal. The auteur helmed the critically-acclaimed film ‘The Social Network,’ which starred JT as Napster founder Sean Parker.
Along with teaming up with Jay-Z, Timberlake also reunited with fellow rapper T.I. for his upcoming album, ‘The 20/20 Experience.’ Tip revealed to MTV News that he recorded a song tentatively titled ‘Goodbye Homey’ with the crooner.
“Well, ‘Goodbye Homey’ is really, it’s saying goodbye to something that is very special to you,” he said. “Not necessarily a person; it could be a time of your life, it could be an experience, it could be a relationship, it could be a friend that’s passed on. ‘Goodbye Homey,’ it has so many meanings and definitions. So when you hear it, you absorb it, and then whatever it means to you is what we intended.”
The Atlanta rapper is happy that Timberlake is back singing again after a six-year hiatus. “It’s just great that he’s back into doing music. The record he has out with Jay right now is phenomenal,” he says of ‘Suit & Tie.’ “It was definitely a sound that was missed.”
Justin Timberlake’s new album ‘The 20/20 Experience’ is due in stores March 19.
