After all the self-perpetuated hype, Justin Timberlake’s new song is finally available for listening. And it’s… disappointing. Even if his past songs were a bit strange, tackling subversive issues such as brining sexy back, or using simile to compare hooking up to ordering fast food in a drive through, they were always extremely catchy. Even if you didn’t quite get them, there was no doubting their ability to worm their way both into your brain and the top 10. This latest venture, however, is kind of a let down.
Talking about the perfect suit and tie (and of course dancing) this song seems destined to be sandwiched in between the “YMCA” and DJ Casper’s “Cha Cha Slide” as a future wedding reception track. Still, even among the harps, Jay-Z’s lackluster mid-song rap, Timberlake’s voice is as sultry as ever. Check out the new song here and tell us what you think.
