Ladies and gentlemen… he’s baaaaaaaaack!
After 7 (very) long years of hibernation, Justin Timberlake has finally made his much anticipated come back. With the release of “Suit & Tie” earlier this year with the one and only H.O.V. (aka Jay-Z, my man), it is one of many to-be hits off the 20/20 Experience album.
Although there was some backlash about “Suit & Tie” not being “Justin-enough” with too much of a different, new/old school mix, this next little diddy should reaffirm your faith in the true Justified experience.
So wait until you hear “Dress On.” This is actually a bonus track off of JT’s 2013 album – and it will take you back to the days of Future Sex LoveSound, where you’ll hear a good amount of influence from his side kick Timbaland. It’s the type of JT/Timbo combination that will make you say “ahhhhh, now that’s the real Justin that we know!”
A few words of warning: be prepared to be seduced.
If you have yet to hear this song, please remove the rock you’ve been sitting under. Kidding! But seriously.
Thrift Shop was brought onto the scene by newcomers Macklemore, a rapper hailing from Seattle and his producer Ryan Lewis. This song, which is about shopping, is a fifth and final single from their album The Heist. And yes, it’s actually hilarious. The chorus goes something like this:
“I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is f*cking awesome.”
Then there is a reference to R. Kelly’s bed sheets smelling like urine and then something about your grammy, your aunty, your momma and your mammy. A classic really, which still made its way to #31 on Ryan Seacrest’s Top 40 charts and the Billboard Top 100. Word.
What could be more entertaining than two white boys spitting rap, riding around on a bicycle and bearing $20 pimp jackets?
Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
