Justin Timberlake Says “Get Out of That Seat, Hov” Line was a Joke With Jay-Z
Justin Timberlake brought his sexy back when he performed at the Super Bowl DirecTV show Saturday night.
The former boy bander-turned-married man personified his new single “Suit & Tie” with a dapper ensemble and brought Hov to the stage for a live rendition of the upbeat tune.
In an exclusive interview with AMP/Los Angeles, he says that the Timbaland-produced track is just the tip of the iceberg for his upcoming album. “With ‘Suit & Tie,’ to me, that was just the wink. We haven’t even gotten to the nice restaurant yet,” he said.
He also revealed that The 20/20 Experience (due March 19) has been in the production stages over the past year. “This album, I’ve been working on it for a little under a year. I just kind of keep it to myself until I feel like it’s ready to come out.”
One friend who did show out for album was rapper Jay-Z, who birthed the line “Get out your seat, Hov” in the studio.
“I had finished the verses and I was going in to record them and he was sitting in the room working, freestyling to himself. And then he came up with a line he really liked and he jumped out of his seat and he said, ‘Uh oh! Get out of that seat, Hov.’ And I just thought it was so funny. It made me laugh. I was standing right beside him when he did it and so I just put it on the record, more or less as a joke to him.”
As for his comeback, the 32-year-old singer is amped to be back since his 2006 effort FutureSex/LoveSounds. “For me, it’s exciting to be back. It’s so special and to be honest, this album, for me, it’s definitely the best work that I feel like I’ve ever done, so I’m really excited for the world to hear it.”
