jay z justin timberlake Justin Timberlake and Jay Z 'Suit and Tie' lyrics: Listen to his return to music!Late Sunday night, Justin Timberlake released his first single in six years, “Suit and Tie,” featuring Jay-Z. The song, which you can listen to in our player at the very bottom of this post, is available for purchase on iTunes.

After waiting for years while Timberlake established his film career — and settled down with wife Jessica Biel — fans were clamoring for new tunes from the former *NSYNC member. While reactions on Twitter are mixed, we have to wonder if lyrics like this make Biel swoon:  “Stop, let me get a good look at it. Ooh so thick, now I know why they call it a fatty. Sh**’s so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit, but that’s all right because you’re all mine.”

Ah, romance.

Coinciding with the release, Timberlake wrote an open letter to fans about his return to music and his big plans for 2013. He even acknowledged the way some have criticized his flair for the dramatic this week.

An Open Letter to you (the fans):

I hope this gets to you the
right way. It’s the only way I know to do it. Some people may criticize
me for the last 3 days. But it was fun, right?? Right?!?! Besides, I’d
rather speak directly to all of you. And, who can knock me for having a
little bit of fun with it?

Well… No more teasing. Although, it was A LOT of fun. (Did I mention that I’m having fun with this?? Ha!)

*Makes a serious face*

So, here goes:

This year is an exciting one for me. As you probably have heard through the “grapevine,” I’m gearing up for a big 2013.

Back in June of last year, I quietly started working on what is now, my next journey with that thing I love called MUSIC.

inspiration for this really came out of the blue and to be honest, I
didn’t expect anything out of it. I just went into the studio and
started playing around with some sounds and songs. It was probably the
best time I’ve had in my career… Just creating with no rules and/or
end goal in mind and really enjoying the process.

What I came up
with is something I couldn’t be more excited about! It is full of
inspiration that I grew up listening to and some newfound muses that
I’ve discovered along the way.

I’m calling it “The 20/20 Experience,” and it’s coming out this year.

I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.

That’s all I’m giving you for now… I know, I know! Again, with the teasing!!!

Get ready. This is going to be fun (well, at least it is for me).
