Justin Timberlake – “Suit & Tie (Four Tet Remix)”

Justin Timberlake is getting a lot of play from gossip blogs this morning, largely because everyone just now realized that he threw a sneaky sideways dis to Kanye West into his SNL performance of “Suit & Tie” this past weekend. If Timberlake had really wanted to blow minds, though, he might have been better off singing Four Tet’s fleet, chopped-up remix of the leaden single, which turns a Jay-Z beat into a drum sound and layers Timberlake’s squeaks and sighs into a hypno-jittery beatscape. Listen to the Four Tet remix below.

Timberlake’s new album The 20/20 Experience is out 3/19 on RCA.
