  • Lyrics
  • This sultry cut is about a girl whom the song's narrator yearns for like an addict craves for drugs. Timberlake debuted the song at a Super Bowl charity gig on February 2, 2013. A week later he performed it again at the Grammy Award ceremony during the singer's first Grammy performance since 2007.
  • The song's string introduction was performed by The Benjamin Wright Orchestra at EastWest Studios in Los Angeles, California.
  • According to Rolling Stone, the song is "an ode to the intoxicating effects of love and sex." It goes through several different styles during its eight-minute duration with Timberlake comparing his lover on the rapped outro to heroin, cocaine, plum wine, MDMA and nicotine.
  • This won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best R&B Song. Timberlake also won Best Video for "Suit & Tie" and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for Jay-Z's "Holy Grail" at the same event.
