Timberlake has concentrated almost exclusively on his acting career over the last few years. But on Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013, he posted a video on his that showed him walking into a studio, putting on headphones and saying: “I'm ready.” He hasn't made an album since 2006's Grammy-winning “FutureSex/LoveSounds.” (Photo by Matt Sayles/Invision/AP, file)

Days after teasing the entire internet, Justin Timberlake has returned with a new song. "Suit & Tie" features Jay-Z and sounds like a slight update on R. Kelly's older stuff, which means you can step to it if you're so inclined.

"I be on my suit and tie sh-t," Timberlake says at the Timbaland-produced track's start. Jay starts off his verse similarly, boasting about his penchant for wearing "all black at the white shows, white shoes at the black shows."

"I don't want to put anything out that I feel like is something I don't love. You just don't get that every day. You have to wait for it," Timberlake said in a video clip posted Thursday. "I'm ready."

"Suit and Tie" is Timberlake's first track as a lead artist since singles released off 2006's "FutureSex/LoveSounds" album.

Secret keeping seems to come easy in Jay-Z and Beyonce's household. The latter singer shocked the web with "Nuclear," a new Destiny's Child song Thursday, the only original song off the group's upcoming album, "Love Songs."

The song hit iTunes late Sunday night. "Suit and Tie" is the lead single off "The 20/20 Experience," an album Timberlake says will be out "this year."
