Justin Timberlake Goes Metal in Amazing ‘Suit and Tie’ Mash Up [VIDEO]
The man who brought the world a Bluegrass version of “The Next Episode” from Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, and a death metal version of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” is at it again.
As noted when I shared his metal makeover of Kesha’s “Die Young” earlier this year, Los Angeles-based musician Andy Rehfeldt likes to turn popular songs upside down by replacing the original music with something that is on the complete opposite end of the spectrum for fun. And he does it well — really well.
Using the original vocals, Rehfeldt turns “Suit and Tie” on its ear with raging guitars and thunderous drums, while seamlessly fusing it with a televised performance from Justin, making it almost appear as if this version is the original.
I like this video for two reasons. The first being my admitted love of heavy metal, and the second being that Suit and Tie has become one of my favorite Timberlake tunes. That’s right, it is possible for someone to like both heavy metal AND Justin Timberlake. They guy writes catchy songs, and knows how to put on an entertaining show. Look no further than his performance at Sunday’s MTV VMA’s for proof of that.
So without further adieu (unless you’ve skipped past everything I just painstakingly took the time to write — thanks for that), turn up your speakers as far as they go to make sure your boss or neighbors hear it, and rock the f— out!
