Justin Timberlake posted a little Valentine’s Day treat for fans today.
The pop singer dropped the video for his first single, “Suit & Tie,” online, which stars Jay-Z and sees Timberlake doing his darndest to channel Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson in the old school black and white clip.
The video was directed by David Fincher, whose extensive film credits include “Fight Club,” “Seven,” “Zodiac” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” He’s delved into music videos in the past, helming Madonna’s “Vogue,” Aerosmith’s “Janie’s Got a Gun,” Roy Orbison’s “She’s a Mystery to Me” and many others.
