It's the first work week of December and the year-end music lists for 2013 keep piling in. We just saw album lists from Q and Mojo, and now we get a list from a US publication, SPIN. There's not too many surprises on this one. Like last year, it shares its #1 with the highest Pitchfork-rated album of the year, and in general it features many of the albums we expect to see on these kinds of lists, including a lot of the year's big-name comebacks like My Bloody Valentine, Justin Timberlake, Daft Punk, Queens of The Stone Age, Boards of Canada and Nine Inch Nails, plus big breakouts like Haim and Disclosure. There are a few interesting omissions though, like Savages.
Check out their full list below...
Haim just made their SNL debut over the weekend, playing "Don't Save Me" and "The Wire," as well as appearing in a sketch that uses The Outfield's mega-'80s hit "Your Love" in a pretty funny way. It was a highlight of an especially lackluster episode of SNL, and you can watch all three clips in this post. Since their appearance, Este Haim's "bass face" -- already an internet meme -- is now full-on sensation, perhaps you've seen it on your Facebook timeline via every one of your friends.
In other news, both of Haim's Terminal 5 shows in May -- including the second show which was just added -- are sold out.
Meanwhile, Saturday Night Live has announced the hosts and musical guests from the remainder of 2013 which looks hopeful on the funny front: Paul Rudd hosts on December 7 with a second appearance from UK boy band One Direction; and John Goodman returns for his 13th hosting job with Kings of Leon as musical guests.
Then on December 21, SNL gifts us with what will be the year's most anticipated show: Jimmy Fallon will host with (surprise!) Justin Timberlake performing. SNL writers usually bring their A-game to a JT episode (expect a return of the Brothers Gibb), and this one will also be a way to remind folks that in the new year, Jimmy Fallon will be moving to The Tonight Show and current "Weekend Update" anchor Seth Meyers will becoming the new Late Night, both of whom will start their new jobs on February 24.
Haim's SNL performances and that Outfield sketch below...
Justin Timberlake at Barclays Center - 11/16/13 (via @liliana_lgd)
Justin Timberlake just brought his tour through the NYC-area for a few dates with The Weeknd including a show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center last week (11/6). Check out JT's 30+ song setlist and videos of both artists from the show, below.
Justin's tour comes back to NYC for a show on February 19 at MSG, and since we last spoke, he's added a ton of more dates, including another show happening at MSG (2/20) a day later. Tickets for that show go on sale November 18 at 10 AM with Fan Club/Mastercard presales starting today (11/13) at 10 AM and Live Nation/Mobile App/Venue/Facebook presales starting Friday (11/15) at 10 AM. There are some tickets left for the first night, but "not many." No openers for these shows announced yet.
Updated dates are listed, along with videos and setlist from Barclays, below...

Justin Timberlake at Yankee Stadium in July (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Justin Timberlake is in a rare position where he's one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, but on (at least the first part of) his new album, he's doing the kind of forward-thinking R&B that usually comes from newer, comparatively smaller artists. So it's a welcome announcement that he's taking one of those smaller artists, The Weeknd, on tour with him. The Weeknd will open this week's NYC-area dates that happen on 11/6 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, 11/7 at XL Center in Hartford, and 11/9 at IZOD Center in NJ. Tickets for all three shows are still available. No opener has been announced for JT's MSG show (2/19) yet.
All dates are listed below...

Justin Timberlake at Yankee Stadium in July (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Justin Timberlake has a bunch of North American dates coming up, including a previously discussed stop at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on November 6 and NJ's IZOD Center on November 9, both of which tickets are still available for. He's just added way more dates into 2014, and the newly expanded tour will bring him back to NYC for a show at Madison Square Garden on February 19. (Not his first time there.) Tickets for that show go on sale Monday (9/30) at 10 AM with a Fan Club presale starting Wednesday (9/25) at 10 AM and Live Nation/Mobile App/Venue/Facebook presales starting Friday (9/27) at 10 AM. Updated dates are listed below.
JT is set to release the second part of his 2013 album, The 20/20 Experience, next week (9/30), but he's currently streaming the whole thing on iTunes. Part 2 gives us 11 more songs and 74+ more minutes of music (hidden track included) from Justin, Timbaland, and co., plus guest verses from Drake and Jay Z. If you liked the boundary-pushing pop of part 1, you'll probably dig much of part 2 too.
Updated dates are listed, along with streams of two album tracks -- "Take Back the Night" and "TKO" -- below...
Danny Brown's Old is one of the most anticipated rap albums of the year, and while holding your breath for a rap release is never a good idea (we've got our fingers crossed for that September 30 release date though), we're feeling one step closer to Old actually seeing the light of day, now that it's officially got album artwork. And pretty great artwork at that. That's it above (via Danny's instagram). It was designed by Sam Chirnside, and the painting is by Leila D'Amato. His newish video for "ODB" is below.
Danny recently made appearances at Afro-Punk Fest, Fool's Gold Day Off, and the NYU Mystery Concert, and he's set to play Rock the Bells NJ in October and open for Sleigh Bells at Terminal 5 in November.
Meanwhile, the group Danny is a part of, Bruiser Brigade will be playing NYC without him (he'll be at Rock the Bells in California) on September 15 at Mercury Lounge. The Detroit crew will be joined by some hometown pals like producer Nick Speed (50 Cent, M.O.P., Talib Kweli) and rapper Dusty McFly, in addition to NYC producer Hillie Hill (Nas, Biggie) and A La $ole of Joey Bada$$'s Pro Era crew. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
There's some other good rap shows coming in NYC too, including afro-beat rapper Blitz the Ambassador, who is headlining The Studio at Webster Hall on September 19 with opening sets from Old Money, Boima, and Caktuz. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Eve, who's got a new album out this year, was supposed to play Irving Plaza back in August, but she'll instead play Gramercy Theatre on September 12. Opening the show is Dyme-A-Duzin (of Phony PPL) and Camille Safiya. Tickets are on sale now, and any tickets purchased for Irving Plaza are being honored.
Not exactly rap, but neo-soul singer Bilal, who released his solid new album A Love Surreal earlier this year, will play the New School Alumni Jazz Night at Highline Ballroom on September 18. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
On the topic of anticipated rap albums, which we were talking about above, Drake also shed some more light on his new album, Nothing Was The Same, which is due out on September 24. He just revealed the tracklist which features previously released singles "Started From the Bottom" and "Hold On, We're Going Home," and "All Me" appears as a bonus track on the deluxe edition. The only guest rappers are Jay Z and Detail. Check out the full tracklist below, and that's the artwork above.
Both Drake and Jay Z appear on the second installment of Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience, which is due out September 30. Justin returns to NYC to play Barclays Center on November 6. Tickets for that show are still available (though Ticketmaster says "not many left"). Artwork and tracklist for his new LP, below.
Things aren't looking so bright in Miguel's world lately, as he was just charged with two counts of DUI after his August arrest.
A$AP Rocky also just faced some legal charges. TMZ reports that due to an incident that occurred while he was performing at Jay Z's Made In America Festival, Rocky was charged with misdemeanor simple assault for allegedly slapping a woman in the crowd. TMZ writes, "The woman claims A$AP was trying to make his way through a crowd of dancing fans -- with a bunch of girls pulling on his shirt -- when A$AP turned and fired off an open-hand slap, connecting with her face. The woman claims she was injured from the alleged slap -- suffering whiplash from the impact." It's not the first time he was accused of something like this.
A$AP Rocky and Drake's third "Fuckin' Problems" partner, Kendrick Lamar, will be in NYC with his Black Hippy friends Ab-Soul and Jay Rock, plus young Brooklyn rapper Bishop Nehru, on September 10 at Williamsburg Park. Tickets for that show are still available.
Meanwhile, the man behind the hook on "Fuckin' Problems," 2 Chainz, will NOT be at Williamsburg Park, because despite being scheduled to play five days after Kendrick, he cancelled his show.
What other hip hop shows in NYC are you excited for? And when is Schoolboy Q's album coming out???

an arial view of Phoenix
During a typical week at BrooklynVegan we end up posting a lot of new videos. This week, for example, we had clips from Antwon, Rituals, Saint Rich and more. But there are many more we don't get to... which is where this post comes in handy. Play catch-up with the latest eye candy from Phoenix, Disappears, Saint Rich, Anna Calvi, Jay Z & Justin Timberlake, Dizzee Rascal, and Frightened Rabbit, below.
Last night (8/28), Justin Timberlake tweeted "Join me & @Target tonight for just one song. Let's "Take Back the Night." First 150 get in. See you there!" with a picture of a microphone, a clock with 30 minutes on it, and Hoboken venue Maxwell's, which closed its doors at the end of last month. According to NJ.com, it's because last night JT was filming a video for Target (where he has a clothing line) at Maxwell's:
There are thousands of people in front of the club at Washington and 11th streets, according to news photographer Joe Shine. Throngs of media are on the scene.So The Bongos and "a" wasn't the last show at Maxwell's after all? Will his video be as fondly remembered as "Glory Days?"
Timberlake's wife, actress Jessica Biel was spotted near his trailer.
Police are using loudspeakers to try to keep the streets clear, but it is of little use, according to Journal staff writer Michaelangelo Conte.
There are people on every corner, people are standing in the streets 10 feet from the sidewalk, Conte said.
There is a big trailer parked outside. Inside Maxwell's is dimly lit and the star cannot be seen, Conte said.
This all happened just after JT was in Brooklyn for the VMAs at Barclays Center. Video of his VMAs performance (in case you missed it) below...
Grimes and 2 Chainz
Taylor Swift realizing *NSYNC appeared on stage
From many points in Brooklyn, one could look up and see the lit up blimp in the air hovering over the Barclays Center yesterday (8/25). It was where the overhead shots were being filmed during the pre-show which included the big crowds outside around the Brooklyn streets that MTV got closed down to create the red carpet for the VMAs....
A red carpet, set up on Dean Street near Flatbush Avenue, was completely invisible to many non-ticketed fans and the general public who were mainly cordoned in a pen at the Best Buy on Atlantic Avenue between Fort Greene Place and Sixth Avenue.Meanwhile, during the ceremony, we got performances from Kanye West (playing "Blood on the Leaves," not "Black Skinhead"), Justin Timberlake (on-stage *NSYNC reunion included), Drake, Kendrick Lamar (joining Robin Thicke, who, um, palled around with Miley Cyrus on stage), Lady Gaga (playing her new EDM-inspired single), and more.
Another penned area, at Sixth Avenue and Bergen Street, gave a small group of fans a distant peek at the carpet, but it was still a full city block away.
"Obviously they can't let everyone in for security reasons, but we can't see anything at all," said Donna Hall, 28, who came from Queens. "I've been out here with my friends since 3 p.m. and we've been trying to find the best vantage point possible, but we settled here because at least we could see a glimpse of the red carpet. [DNA Info]
Daft Punk didn't perform, but they did walk the red carpet and sit in the audience in their masks which they also wore to present 'Best Female Music Video' with Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. They also debuted part of the video for "Lose Yourself to Dance."
Vampire Weekend, who are headlining the Barclays Center in September, presented an award to One Direction.
Jay-Z and Beyonce were strangely nowhere to be found.
Eminem also pulled a Jay Z and announced his new album, MMLP2 (the sequel to 2000's Marshall Mathers LP), in a commercial that aired during the VMAs. The album was executive produced by Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin, and it's due out November 5. Meanwhile, the single, "Berserk," will drop this Tuesday (8/27).
If you watched, what did you think? Should Miley Cyrus stop being so trashy? Should Robin Thicke stop being so creepy? Should Kanye stop being so serious? Does Justin Timberlake have really long arms? Does anyone really care that *NSYNC showed up (for a minute and a half)? If you didn't watch, or need a refresher, some videos from the night are below...
Grimes at Coachella 2013 (more by Wei Shi)
Traffic hasn't been as bad around the Barclays Center as opponents thought it would be when the Brooklyn arena was first announced. We think that may not be true this Sunday (8/25) though as MTV takes over the room to film the live telecast of the VMAs. Everyone from Kanye West to Katy Perry to Daft Punk to Robin Thicke are going to be there or are rumored to be there. Prince is in town. So is Perez Hilton.
The 2013 Video Music Awards are near, and to herald their arrival on Sunday, August 25, MTV is launching the VMA All Access Experience, 5 days of livestreamed performances and VMA moments starting NOW! And, get this, Grimes will be making a special appearance!Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake will be receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award during the VMAs, and it's been announced that his 'History of Rap' partner Jimmy Fallon will be the one presenting it to him. Justin is also rumored to be reuniting on stage at the VMAs with his old boy band *NSYNC. Maybe you've heard of them.
Show day, however, has got MTV Hive pumped -- not only because the 2013 Video Music Awards features the likes of Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Kanye West, but because Grimes, along with designer Rachel Antonoff, will co-host MTV Style's Red Carpet Report (6 p.m. ET Sunday). Perhaps she'll wear one of her pussy rings? One can dream.
You can watch the broadcast on vma.mtv.com.
Later this year (and more South), Grimes will be playing some festivals, including Austin's ACL Fest in October, Mexico City's Corona Capital Fest in October, and a Young Turks party in Mexico on New Year's Eve.
still from 'Inside Llewyn Davis'
Inside Llewyn Davis is the new Coen Brothers film starring Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund and Justin Timberlake, which has been on the festival circuit this year (including this fall's New York Film Festival) and will open in December. The music in the film was executively produced by T-Bone Burnett, and mostly consists of covers of old folk songs. The soundtrack will be released on November 12 via Nonesuch.
The film's music will be celebrated and performed in NYC on September 29 at Town Hall during a big concert that features Jack White, Patti Smith, Colin Meloy (The Decemberists), Conor Oberst, Joan Baez, Marcus Mumford, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Punch Brothers, Avett Brothers, Milk Carton Kids, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), and more, in addition to some of the film's cast, including Oscar Isaac, John Goodman, Carey Mulligan, and Stark Sands.

Justin Timberlake at Yankee Stadium last Friday (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Justin Timberlake just brought his tour with Jay Z to NYC for two Yankee Stadium shows over the weekend, and he's since added many of his own dates to happen this fall without Jay Z, including two more in the NYC-area. The first is at Brooklyn's newest arena, Barclays Center on November 6, and the second is on November 9 at IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ. Tickets for those shows go on MasterCard/Fan CLub presales today (7/24) at 10 AM, Live Nation/LN Mobile App presale Friady (7/26) at 10 AM, and on sale to the general public Monday (7/29) at 10 AM.
JT is set to release the second part of The 20/20 Experience on September 30. He recently released its single, "Take Back the Night," which you can listen to, along with an updated list of tour dates, below.

Jay Z and Justin Timberlake @ Yankee Stadium - 7/19/2013
"Three years ago, Jay Z performed at Yankee Stadium's first concert, bringing out Kanye West, Beyonce, Eminem, Drake, Coldplay's Chris Martin and Swizz Beatz. [Friday night], the focus is on Jay and Justin Timberlake, with only Alicia Keys appearing for "Empire State of Mind" and Timbaland showing up for "SexyBack." Before "Empire," Timberlake breaks into Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York," and while not the rousing, stadium-wide singalong the duo might have intended it to be, it signaled Jay's umpteenth attempt to remind you that he is the new Sinatra. Or something. While Kanye's output in the past decade has been hip hop's most intriguing and innovative, tonight's show proved that Jay's King of the Universe title remains unchallenged." [Fuse]Justin Timberlake and Jay Z (not Jay-Z) played their first of two shows at Yankee Stadium on Friday night (7/19). They do it again tonight/Saturday (7/20).
Pictures and the setlist from Friday are in this post. It all continues below...
still from Phoenix's "Trying to Be Cool"
We've already posted a bunch of videos this week like Rhye on 'Jimmy Kimmel', Fucked Up on the Chris Gethard Show, Ex Cops in the BV Studios, Jherek Bischoff and David Byrne, Katerine, Jaguar Shark, and more. But of course we don't get to post about all the cool videos that come out during the week (or weeks), so here's our attempt at playing catchup. Check out videos from Phoenix, The Julie Ruin, Speedy Ortiz, Lindstrøm, Titus Andronicus, a trailer for a documentary about M.I.A., the new episode of Weird Vibes, and more, below.
Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake from SNL
The Jiggaman aka Jay-Z, who will not perform atop Ed Sullivan Theater for now, released his new LP Magna Carta Holy Grail via Samsung app yesterday - though not without glitches, and will drop it proper-like on July 7. In addition, Shawn Carter is now streaming a new track featuring Justin Timberlake from said release, one that interpolates Kurt Cobain lyrics from a little song called "Smells like Teen Spirit." Courtney Love approves... sort of. Check out "Holy Grail" below.

"Thank you NYC and Roseland Ballroom! Had so much fun tonight. Lets do it again soon..." - Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake at Roseland Ballroom - 5/5/13 (via Bryan Pace for NY Daily News)
Justin Timberlake played a very intimate (for his standards) pre-tour show in NYC at Roseland Ballroom last night (5/5), which MasterCard sponsored and you had to "register for a chance" to purchase tickets for. Like he's been doing at his other shows this year, he played material from all three of his albums, including 2013's excellent The 20/20 Experience, with his new retro-soul stage setup. Check out videos from last night's show below.
As mentioned, this summer Justin will be touring with "Suit & Tie" guest Jay-Z, and that tour hits NYC for huge shows at Yankee Stadium on July 19 and 20. Tickets for both of those shows are still available, but according to Ticketmaster, "not many left." JT also just announced another leg of tour dates (without Jay-Z) which kick off this October and run through February, 2014. No other NYC dates have been announced for that leg at the moment. All dates are listed below.
In other news, apparently one comeback album this year just wasn't enough for JT. You may have seen a post from Questlove earlier this year which stated that Justin had a second part of the The 20/20 Experience on the way, and over the weekend, Justin posted a picture to his facebook page (which you can see above) confirming that the second part of the album will be out on September 30. Should be interesting to hear what a second album only months after his last sounds like from a man who just waited seven years between releases. Though you may remember that when Justin first announced his return, he reportedly had around 20 tracks recorded, so maybe this will be the Amnesiac to his Kid A? (And yes, I did just mention Justin Timberlake and Radiohead in the same sentence. :x)
Updated dates are listed, along with Roseland videos, below...
Here's an interesting concept. Justin Timberlake is playing a Mastercard-sponsored show at Roseland Ballroom in NYC on May 5. Tickets for this intimate-compared-to-Yankee-Stadium show cost $129.50+taxe+fees each, but you need to "register for a chance" at being one of the "lucky" who is allowed to purchase your way in to the "priceless" experience. Good luck!
Justin's two Yankee Stadium shows with Jay-Z are in July.
Head to Veganville with Justin below...
Jay-Z (right) with Jaz. Note, not a recent picture.
Jay-Z's bid for a festival, known as Made in America, will return to Philadelphia in 2013, setting aside August 31- September 1 at Benjamin Franklin Parkway for the second edition. Check out a teaser trailer below, and line-up is forthcoming.
In other Jigga news, the man who REALLY started from the bottom (sorry, Drake- lol) has moved his Roc Nation venture away from Columbia Records and back to Universal:
News comes today from Jay & Roc Nation themselves that they've decided on Universal Music Group as their parent label, departing from multi-year deals that had Roc Nation records, including the most successful release from the company thus far, J. Cole's 2011 debut Cole World: The Sideline Story, releasing on Columbia Records.... Roc Nation's next release, which appears to be J. Cole's oft-delayed, but highly-anticipated sophomore effort Born Sinner, will be released on Roc Nation/Universal Music Group. -[The Source]Roc Nation currently houses J. Cole, Jay Electronica and others, while managing such names as Rihanna, Meek Mill, Wale, Timbaland, and No I.D.

TOKiMONSTA on SS Coachella 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
TOKiMONSTA began picking up more speed as an artist on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label, and she's now signed with big-time EDM label Ultra (Deadmau5, Kaskade, Bloody Beetroots), who will release her new album, Half Shadows, on April 2. From the sound of the album's two singles, "Go With It" (featuring MNDR) and "The Force" (featuring Kool Keith), she's not changing her sound to fit in with her labelmates (luckily). Instead, she shows us what the LA beat scene sounds like mixed with dream pop on the MNDR collab, and on the one with Kool Keith, she creates an updated vision of the futurism that Keith was doing with Dan the Automator in his Dr. Octagon days. You can stream both songs below.
TOKiMONSTA is playing a few live dates too, including a record release show for Half Shadows with "very special guests" in NYC on April 9 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale today (3/21) at noon. All dates are listed below.
TOKiMONSTA also just offered a remix of Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie" off his new album, The 20/20 Experience, which is out now. This remix follows the one Four Tet did earlier this month, though unlike Four Tet's, TOKiMONSTA's was not officially approved by JT's label. You can stream both of those remixes below.
Justin also recently released the video for "Mirrors," which you can watch below too. And in more related news, The Hollywood Reporter reports that he confirmed that a sequel to The 20/20 Experience (the "second half" of the album) is on its way. His tour with Jay-Z hits NYC on July 19 and 20 at Yankee Stadium and tickets for both nights are still available.
All TOKiMONSTA tour dates are listed, along with all streams and videos, below...
Amid all the noise that is SXSW, Yahoo! announced that Kendrick Lamar, fun., the Lumineers, J. Cole, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Imagine Dragons and more would be a part of a travelling festival called "Yahoo! on the Road" that kicks with a show in NYC on May 3. No word on exact line-up or venue just yet but the new media conglomerate promises details soon.
The tour concludes the three-day Wireless Festival in London (July 12 - 14) that will also feature Jay-Z & Justin Timberlake (who just added a second Yankee Stadium show), Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, Ke$ha, Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, A$AP Rocky and more. All Yahoo on the Road dates are listed below.
JT on 'Fallon' last night
Maybe no surprise but tickets sold out quick this morning to Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z July 19 Yankee Stadium date on their "Legends of Summer Tour." (You might be able to still grab a single ticket, but we couldn't pull up two or more.) It may also not surprise you to learn that they've added a second Yankee Stadium show the next day (7/20). Tickets to that show go on sale Monday, March 18 at 10 AM. Updated dates are below.
In other news, Timberlake is on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon all week and last night performed "Pusher Love" from his upcoming The 20/20 Experience (which you can stream on iTunes). Video of that is below.
Justin Timberlake, who just played and hosted SNL, is streaming his new album, The 20/20 Experience, a week ahead of its March 19 release date on iTunes. Meanwhile, for those looking to get tickets to see JT and Jay-Z's massive show at Yankee Stadium on July 19, tickets go on sale Tuesday (3/12) at 10 AM.
It was probably the most-anticipated episode of Saturday Night Live of the season, with Justin Timberlake on double duty as host and musical guest. The writers love JT and they show usually pulls out all the stops for him. Last night (3/9) was no different. Jay-Z showed up for "Suit and Tie," giving us a preview of what to expect this summer (like at Yankee Stadium on 7/19). He also performed "Mirrors."
Jay-Z was only one of what was one of the most guest-star-filled episodes ever. This was JT's fifth time hosting which put him in the Five Timers Club, where Paul Simon, Tom Hanks, Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, Candice Bergen, and Chevy Chase were to greet him. (Dan Ackroyd tended bar and Martin Short was there too.) Ackroyd and Martin reprised their wild-and-crazy Festrunk Brothers characters for a dating gameshow sketch that also featured JT and Andy Samberg as the "Dick in a Box" roles. Timberlake also put back on the "bring it on to ____ville" costume, this time as a block of tofu for a vegan restaurant.
The next new SNL is April 6 with Melissa McCarthy hosting and Phoenix as musical guests. Clips from last night's SNL are below.
As mentioned, Justin Timberlake is releasing The 20/20 Experience, his first album since 2006's FutureSex/LoveSounds, on March 19 via RCA. You've already seen the music video and some live performances of the first single, "Suit & Tie," which features Jay-Z, and heard the second single, "Mirrors." But if you need a refresher, both of those songs and the album's tracklist are below. That's the cover art above.
JT also just announced that he'll be supporting the album with a tour with Jay-Z, who in addition to guesting on "Suit & Tie," has performed it with him at all of JT's one-offs this year. That tour is a huge stadium tour dubbed the "Legends of the Summer" tour and it hits NYC on July 19 at Yankee Stadium. All dates are listed below. All shows go on sale February 28, except the Yankee Stadium date, for which ticket info has not been announced yet. More specific info on tickets and presales is HERE.
Justin will be in NYC sooner than that though, to host and be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on March 9 and appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon from March 11 to 15. Maybe we'll get another one of those random one-offs to warm up for Yankee Stadium while he's here?
A list of all dates, song stream, video, and album tracklist below...

Justin Timberlake has released the video for his song "Suit & Tie" which co-stars Jay-Z. The clip was directed by David Fincher and the two previously worked together on The Social Network. Like Fincher's videos for Madonna and George Michael, "Suit & Tie" is all style and you can watch it below.
J. Cole finally revealed the first single off of his delayed sophomore album, Born Sinner. It's called "Power Trip" and features a hook from Miguel, who previously collaborated with the rapper on his 2010 single, "All I Want Is You.". Stream the new track below.
