Justin Timberlake has finally released a new single, 7 years after FutureSex/LoveSounds. The track, titled “Suit & Tie,” encourages the listener to suit up, over sleek synths and references to the soul and funk of the Seventies. A number of references from that era can be recalled, along with Timberlake’s own debut, like a 2013 “Like I Love You.”
R&B is an ever-expanding and changing genre, especially in 2012… if you’re a man. Frank Ocean, Migeul, and The Weeknd all rose to higher notoriety and famethanks, in part, to their minimalist beats and crisp falsettos. They brought fresh sounds and perspectives and reinvigorated the likes of Usher, with “Climax” being a direct result of the Weeknd and Drake.
