Can you believe, after all that waiting, we got comebacks from both Destiny’s Child (“Nuclear”) and Justin Timberlake (“Suit & Tie”) in the same week? We will be forever grateful to DC and JT for brightening up the ever-dark days of early January with the surprise releases of their comeback singles. But after the initial rush, were the songs worth the wait?
Neither track was as overblown as the hype surrounding them — in fact, they were both far more chilled-out than we were expecting. Rather than try to hit the reset button for pop music, they both repurposed retro sounds. But which one did you like more? JT’s collaboration with Jay-Z and Timbaland, or Beyonce‘s reunion with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams? Cast your vote below. (I think we can agree, whoever wins, Jay-Z wins.)
