Nothing confuses me more than people who don't like the song "Suit and Tie." When did this become a thing to not like? I can truthfully say I would be less confused by a white man, at a Tyler Perry movie, dressed like Madea, on opening night, in Salt Lake City. There are people who actively dislike the song. With Activity! It boggles the mind. This isn't a Dane Cook situation where it's cool to hate the song, but there are definitely two camps. And it's the mere existence of the Anti-"Suit and Tie" camp that gets on my nerves. I just don't understand the hate. I mean imagine if someone came up to you and said "I don't know about you but I hate cereal boxes. All cereal boxes too, I just hate em so much. Especially the cardboard ones." The suit and tie hate just feels similarly out of left field.
What exactly is there to hate? The smooth beat? Justin's angelic vocals? A slick Jay-Z verse?
I think it gets back to people wanting you to do the same thing over and over. They wanted Sexyback 2.0 and didn't get it, so they're complaining. The kicker is had they gotten Sexyback 2.0, they'd be talking about how it isn't as good as the original. It's the haters dilemma.
So shout out to Justin for an incredibly solid effort. It's definitely for R&B heads so I don't expect the masses to really embrace this (although he moved about 980,000 copies in the first week so what do I know). I'd say make sure you at least check, Pusher Love Girl, Mirrors, Strawberry Bubblegum, and Blue Ocean Floor (my favorite).
