"Suit & Tie" may have debuted at #1 on the Hot 100 and edged close to some chart history records but a month on and the excitement has all but faded.
We've had several discussions about the impact and influence "SexyBack" and "My Love" had on music when they were first released, and even the excitement and promise of "Cry Me A River" and a good share of Justified when JT's music was forward-thinking and innovative. Sadly, neither "Suit & Tie" or "Mirrors" feel like they've struck the same chord, which can really only be attributed to one thing; the writers and producers this time around aren't on the cutting edge of the genre.
This kinda got us thinking, why didn't JT and Timbaland bring in the new crop of creative producers and writers like Hudson Mohawke, Disclosure, Jai Paul, Frank Ocean, Miguel, Cashmere Cat, Hit-Boy, The Weeknd etc? If FutureSex LoveSounds had Danja, The Clutch and other fresh young writers, where are they this time around?
Keeping in mind JT's vocal stylings, overall direction and a focus towards innovation, we've selected 5 songs we wish were JT's comeback single, rather than "Suit & Tie".
Miguel - Do You?
Usher - Climax
Disclosure - Latch
Jeremih - 773 Love
Labrinth - Earthquake
Some honorable mentions
The Weeknd - High For This
Jai Paul - Jasmine
Bruno Mars - Locked Out Of Heaven
Frank Ocean - Swim Good
Justin Bieber - As Long As You Love Me
What would you pick?
