Real talk: it may be impossible to replicate the complete package that is Justin Timberlake. The man hasn’t released a record since FutureSex/LoveSounds since September 2006 and his recent single featuring Jay-Z, “Suit & Tie,” has already made critics and waiting fans alike foam at the mouth. It has also excited smaller artists such as Leonard Friend, who just released a “remixed” rendition of the single.
Friend’s Swing Jack cover is short and sweet, complete with a video in which Friend dons, yes, you guessed it, a suit and tie. While his dance moves may not rival JT’s, you have to admire his pink shoes and quick take on the first single off of The 20/20 Experience.
