Watch Justin Timberlake Debut Two New Songs With Big-Band Style
Their titles are unclear, but we do know Jay-Z helped out on "Suit & Tie"
Justin Timberlake brought sexy back for his first performance in nearly five years last night and gave fans a preview of material from his upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience (out March 19).
As the Associated Press reports, the “Suit & Tie” singer played an hour-long set for DirecTV’s pre-Super Bowl party in New Orleans, pulling out “Cry Me a River,” “My Love,” and more from his back catalog, but JT also debuted two new songs. Their titles aren’t clear — the AP lists the tracks as “Push Your Love Girl” and “That Girl,” while Prefix identifies them as “Little Pusher, Lover Girl” and “Bad Girl” — but what is evident is that both tracks are slow jamz that benefit from Timberlake’s trademark falsetto and a big band treatment. The tux doesn’t hurt, either.
The former ‘N Sync star’s set list also included covers of INXS’ “What You Need” and the Jacksons’ “Shake Your Body (to the Ground),” as well as a Jay-Z-assisted rendition of “Suit & Tie.”
Watch “Push Your Love” (or “Little Pusher, Lover Girl”) up above and scroll down to see “That Girl” (or “Bad Girl”), followed by “Suit & Tie.” Hopefully Timberlake will clear up the title confusion when he returns to the Grammy stage as a live performer on February 10.
