Justin Timberlake shows off his beauty routine in the full-length “Suit & Tie” lyric video.
Remember how excited you got yesterday after watching a preview for Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie Featuring Jay-Z” lyric video? You know, the one that let you (legally and without judgment, we might add!) watch Justin Timberlake getting dressed? (Oh, you’re still watching? No worries — we’ll wait.) But you might want to switch gears to the full-length “Suit & Tie” lyric video, which as promised, has officially dropped today! And guess what? You can continue to watch JT get dressed (#NotComplaining), only this time, Justin walks us through even more crucial elements to his beauty routine, like getting a close shave and having his hair did, for example. We also get a good look at JT’s decision-making process for picking out JUST the right tie to go with his matching cuff links. And yes, we know — we’re we’re basically living vicariously through Jessica Biel’s actual life (we imagine she’s his IRL go-to “tie picker”), but it’s OK — we’re working through our jealousy as we speak.
Watch Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie Featuring Jay-Z” lyric video after the jump!
After Justin moves swiftly down his “how-to-be-fly” checklist (we’re partial to watching him pick out socks), the black-and-white, Laban Pheidias-shot video sees JT sitting at the piano playing a little ditty (perhaps a new track from his forthcoming The 20/20 Experience?), and likely thinking something along the lines of, “These hands got me a No. 1 single, b****s!!” Next, it’s time for a quick drink, a game of roulette, and an expensive Cuban cigar. And although Justin’s “Suit & Tie” cohort Jay-Z isn’t exactly shown in the lyric vid, Jigga’s verse still rings out like gospel (of course).
The moral of the story? Even when doing basic things like getting his hair cut, picking out a tie, and essentially living his #bestlife, Justin still looks slicker than 1 percent of the population. In fact, the only person who miiiight be able to outslick him is Jay-Z himself (uh, did you SEE him at the presidential inauguration??). But here’s how Justin wins at the slick game: It’s “Justin Timberlake FEATURING Jay-Z,” no? Cheap shot, we know, but we’re still regaining consciousness from watching JT get dressed, so you’ll just have to bear with us.
