David Fincher Directing Justin Timberlake/Jay-Z “Suit & Tie” Video
For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past two weeks, “Suit & Tie” also features a guest spot from Jay-Z. Followers of Fincher’s career know that his early days consisted of creating such memorable MTV mainstays as Madonna’s “Vogue” and Aerosmith’s “Janie’s Got a Gun” (which, despite the song being awful, is a damn cool video). Production on the clip began a week ago and, while there are no official confirmations as to what its content will be, set photos reveal that everyone is at least appropriately dressed to the nines.
The 20/20 Experience will drop March 19. I’m sure we’ll hear plenty more from the hype machine between now and then but, in the meantime, jam your face off to “Suit & Tie“. While I love Timberlake’s acting (no sarcasm at all), there’s no arguing that “bonafide pop star” is the man’s true calling.
