Justin Timberlake released his new "Suit and Tie" video this morning, though anyone who saw his performance on the Grammys Sunday will recognize a lot of it -- from the dance moves to the black and white vibe.

Timberlake has always worn his influences on his sleeves and there are shots here that call to mind Michael Jackson's "Rock With You" and the finale owes a little to his hero Donald O'Connor in "Singin' in the Rain." That said, Jay-Z's verse is extra cool -- even seated.
