  • This super-charged sex anthem finds JT taking the bawdiness of a cabaret to the bedroom. The song features Drake, who throws in an Eddie Murphy reference ("On my Eddie Murphy Boomerang for ya. Got a bunch of old girls that I threw away for ya"). Boomerang was a 1992 movie starring Murphy.

    The song was the first collaboration between Drake and Timberlake.
  • Cabaret is a form of entertainment featuring variety turns. Its name derives from the French 'cambret' meaning tavern. The audience usually sits at tables, often dining or drinking and the entertainment is often oriented towards adult audiences. The first cabaret was opened in Montmartre, Paris on November 18, 1881 by the painter Rudolphe Salis. He called it a cabaret because the songs and sketches were set forth like courses on a menu. Salis' Montmartre premises housed not only Friday night poetry readings but also elaborate shadow plays, scripted, designed and musically accompanied by leading artists. Cabaret entertainment was imported to America from France by Jesse Louis Lasky in 1911.
