Although I grew up in the era of boy bands, where *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys battled it out for the top spot in the charts as well as every teenage girls heart, I am refreshed to hear a different version of Justin Timberlake's new song, "Suit & Tie."
The song is on his new album, The 20/20 Experience, which was released March 19. Like I said, I am a sucker for Justin Timberlake and his vocal talent ever since his boy band and Mickey Mouse Club days, but the repetition of hearing that song every five minutes on the radio is driving me a little insane.
Luckily, Mindy White (current lead singer of States and formerly of Lydia) released a cover of this song to switch things up.
White, appropriately wearing a tuxedo T-shirt in the video for the song, puts a much needed spin on this already overplayed, but still amazing, track. Her sweet voice, mixed with the background piano and synth sounds make for a completely different vibe when compared to the pop version.
The cover will be available to download for free on Wednesday on SoundCloud. However, you can listen to the cover now in this video below.
