It's Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie" Vs. Destiny's Child's "Nuclear"

The world waited six years and stayed up till midnight for this shit?

I much prefer Destiny's Child's early-'90s-sounding new reunion single "Nuclear."

Justin Timberlake's "SexyBack" was pretty underwhelming when it came out, too, though the parent album wound up being pretty rad. Here's hoping history repeats itself?

He wrote the following on his official site:

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

The 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.

    After feeling mildly blah about the Destiny's Child track on Friday, it's grown on me and slipped into my head a few times over the weekend. I've been in a 90s House music frame of mind lately, and this fits nicely into that niche, although I have no idea why Pharrell and DC thought this was the way to record a contemporary track.

    I can't believe this...I actually cannot stand Justin Timberlake but besides the introduction, I absolutely LOVE "Suit and Tie"! Maybe this is just the after effect of being on flights for over 17 hours in the last 24 hours!

    John, I agree, though everyone's crowing about how Azealia Banks does the whole early-'90s R&B/house schtick better. I'm not finding that to be the case myself, though.

    Pranav, that one is going to have to REALLY grow on me. It just seems so lackluster. I do like the Hall & Oates influences, though.
