Mr. Timberlake is probably one of the happiest people in the world today. Not only does he get to sleep with Jessica Biel, but his new album, The 20/20 Experience has made nearly 1 million in sales the first week! Which is something to be proud of when you consider almost everything can be downloaded for free these days. Justin Timberlake was “shocked” by how well his album did the first week and he thanked all his fans on Twitter,
Whoa… Speechless. Shocked. Numbers go up, numbers go down. I just hope this album makes your Summer… You already made mine #bestfansever

He also tweeted a very mysterious message where he states that he’s going to find a way to show his appreciation to all his fans. What does he mean by that? No one knows for sure, however, E! Online thinks that it might involve a scavenger hunt for tickets to his upcoming tour with Jay-Z.
Justin is part of a unique club. One that Adele and a few others belong to. That’s the club that can appeal to all demographics. That leads to record sales, which leads to uber success. The numbers are backing that theory not only in record sales but also in concert ticket as it looks like JT and Jay-Z might out sell the Kanye West and Jay-Z’s tour of last year. Kanye might not be feeling this Suit and Tie sh*t but the rest of the Jay-Z’s fans apparently are.
Get out your seat Hov!
We all know that Justin is one of the best SNL guests. He typically leaves the show with sound bites and video clips that last for years, serving as both musical guest and host.
In typical JT fashion he started off the show with one sound bite that is sure to get some attention, and it was aimed at MTV’s number 7 hottest rapper, Kanye West.
Kanye who is used to being a bully and not having people respond to his antics, will certainly not be happy.
Timberlake opened the show with Suit and Tie. A song that Kanye criticized during a show in London 2 weeks ago. I believe Ye said,
“I got love for Hov . . . I ain’t f*cking with that Suit and tie Shit
He seemed to be a little jaded by whole Jay-Z –Timberlake combo and related tour. Justin took his opportunity on national television to respond. He one upped Kanye, not because he was on national television but because he did it cleverly…by altering the lyrics of the very song that Kanye was talking about.
Without any indication that he had something up his sleeve, JT transitioned into his second verse of Suit and Tie, but the lyrics were changed:
And aw, sh*t so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit,”
“My hit’s so sick, got rappers acting dramatic.”
Well played Justin, Well Played.
Kanye on the other hand….doesn’t seem to be amused.
This isn’t the best song on the planet but I think it has appeal for many reasons. This is Justin Timberlake’s first song after 7 years and JT fans were starving for something…anything. It’s produced by Timbaland and batting cleanup is none other than Jay-Z.
Besides all that, it has a flare of sophistication that hip hop and R&B has been missing recently. Let’s face it, Jay-Z fans, Justin Timberlake Fans and Timbaland fans are either nearing 30 or 30 plus. Sometime there is a need for some grown and sexy. I’m even writing this in my Suit and Tie.
I hate to keep using the word SWAG but let’s just say the video looks like it was produced by GQ. Jay Z is rapping in the mic sitting down. Who does that!
See for yourself. Over 700,000 views in 24 hours. Not too bad.
Jay-Z managed to win another award Sunday at the Grammy’s. Not for his performance with Justin Timberlake, Not for an award worthy acceptance speech…but for a joke he made.
The Dream, Frank Ocean and Jay-Z one for Best Rap Collaboration. Upon receiving the award, Ocean and The Dream gave their speeches. Apparently Black Tie means something different to The Dream then it does to everyone else. Jay-Z noticing his uh…lack of dress says simply in his acceptance speech, “I would like to thank the swap meet for his hat,”
That comment actually received the highest tweets per minute. The entire Grammy’s Ceremony received a total of 13.2 million tweets, Jay-Z received 116,400 of those.
The top three tweeted Moments were:
- Jay-Z, Kanye West, Frank Ocean and The-Dream win Best Rap Collaboration: 116,400
- Prince announce’s Gotye winning Record of the Year: 109,400
- Fun. wins best new artist: 100,600
