Well, we can’t let Drake have ALL the fun, now can we?
On the first run through of the song, (which clocks in at over 7 minutes) it appears that Timberlake is single about a former flame that he believed himself to be over…until he saw her with someone else, thus being hit with the aforementioned “TKO”.
Much like “Take Back the Night”, the song is super catchy (and fun) and it really helps that Timberlake recruited Timbaland for this effort. This track is full of all sorts of awesome beats and synths and as a result, I am almost compelled to play this sh*t on loop.

Anyways, I’m expecting this song to see even more success than “Take Back the Night” (which peaked at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100), seeing as it’s a relatable song about (moderate) heartbreak and has a catchy as beat to boot.
Also, expect Jay Z and Drake to make a few appearances on the project too.
The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2) is set to debut September 30, 2013).
