We like to think of ourselves as a relatively insightful bunch here at MTV Style. Justin Timberlake drops a new single (his first solo dolo project since FutureSex/LoveSounds was released in 2006) called “Suit and Tie”, and accordingly, we should expect whatever video comes with it will feature JT in a… *drumrollll* suit and tie! You don’t need to be Nate Silver to predict that. And yet, we’re STILL just as excited and slack-jawed and barely mustering up enough energy to fan ourselves with both hands to stall system overload from watching this 30-second teaser (JUST THE TEASER) of the “Suit and Tie” lyric video as if we had known nothing at all.

We realize that getting all worked up about a lyric video (not even technically the “real thing”) is bizarre, but this isn’t your 13-year-old niece’s lyric video — you know, the kind with Curlz MT font and the occasional Twilight screengrab. The lyrics of “Suit and Tie” are merely decoration for what we feel is the main event: Timberlake in grayscale getting dressed in a smart three-piece suit and tie. *reaches left hand out and drags down computer screen Titanic-style* In just 30 seconds, we watch Justin button buttons, zhuzh his vest, slap his cufflinks, brush his jacket shoulders off (with a real brush!!!!!), and do up his tie while slyly flashing the Tom Ford label at the camera.

What’s left for him to do in this lyric video? And on that wavelength, in the official music video? On the fashion front, we’re not entirely sure. We bet there’s a little more piano-playing and maybe, just mayyyyybe, he’ll get up and dance. *crosses fingers, toes, and everything else that can be crossed* A few more things we’re pulling for: a Jay-Z cameo and an outfit change. Better yet, a montage of Jay and JT cycling through suit and tie outfit changes. I guess we’ll all see for ourselves when the full-length version of “Suit and Tie” video premieres tomorrow, Thursday, January 24 at 6 a.m. ET on MTV, VH1, AMTV, mtvU and MTV Hits. *faints with teaser video on endless repeat*
