From Jay-Z to Justin Timberlake, some of 2013’s greatest hits are mentioning designers and fashion trends in their tracks. With the release of “Magna Carta/Holy Grail”, Jay-Z’s latest album, designer Tom Ford not only get’s his named dropped in the chorus, but the rapper even dedicates an entire song to the fashion icon, titled “Tom Ford”.
The union between the rapper and designer seems just right. A top tier music mogul and one of the biggest names in fashion is bound to make a statement.
In the chorus, Jay-Z is rapping, “I don’t pop Molly/ I rock Tom Ford.” It seems that Ford’s pieces are Jay-Z’s drug of choice. What designer gets you “high?”
Jay-Z is not the only one dedicating his tunes to the men’s fashion world.
Justin Timberlake made his musical comeback with fashion in mind. Bringing sexy-back after a six year hiatus, his track “Suit & Tie” off his “The 20/20 Experience” album proves Timberlake is a fashion guy too. Ironically featuring Jay-Z rocking Tom Ford in the video from head to toe, this collaboration has been a huge success. The track is inspired by retro soul legends and infused with modern sound. Not only was “Suit & Tie” a number one hit but the Jay-Z and Timberlake are currently collaborating in the “Legends of the Summer” tour.
