Gimme What I Don't Know (I Want)

Album: The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2 (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Timberlake kicks off his The 20/20 Experience Part 2 album with this extended metaphor of the bedroom as a jungle. Timbaland's dynamic beat, which is filled with animalistic undertones and monkey noises, helps to express JT's savage lust. In an interview with 97.1 AMP Radio in Los Angeles, Timberlake said the second 20/20 Experience was a bit different from his previous installment. "It's the fall version of The 20/20 Experience," he said. "It's a little darker. It's got a little more experience. It's less virginal, if you know what I mean!"
