Justin Timberlake’s highly-anticipated musical comeback greeted us with the magical throwback that is Suit & Tie.

Some loved it at the first listen, others needed a few more listens – but more and more people are falling in love with it each day. The Jay-Z assisted track debuted at #3 in the UK (with Timberlake’s ex Britney at the top spot with Scream & Shout) and rose to #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.

Whilst the track builds up on the overall charts, Suit & Tie has already become another R&B #1 for Timberlake as it nabbed the top spot from Rihanna this week. Making it the first song to have the #1 spot besides Rihanna’s Diamonds in 15 weeks.

Suit & Tie has also made US chart history, becoming the track with the highest first-week plays on US radios following its premiere on January 14.

Since premiering his big comeback song last week, Justin has kept relatively quiet. Although, a recent Tweet made on his official Twitter account revealed that Timberlake is currently in rehearsals. The rehearsals could be for the music video, promotional performances, his rumoured Superbowl appearance with Beyoncé – many possibilities, but for all we know Justin could release the music video tomorrow.

The song is serving as the lead single for Justin’s upcoming third solo album, The 20/20 Experience, and is available to buy on iTunes now.
