Songfacts®:

  • Justin Timberlake ends his The 20/20 Experience album on an ambient note. He explained in an interview with MySpace that such songs as this tune and "Strawberry Bubblegum" were his attempts to put his own spin on Radiohead's electronic rock. "I want people to close their eyes and listen to this album," he said. "I really do think my effort with the last album was to make people dance, and I think with this album, I wrote a lot of songs that make me want to sing ... and dance."
