Strawberry Bubblegum

Album: The 20/20 Experience (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This smooth and sensual R&B tune finds Timberlake using sex-as-candy metaphors to pay tribute to a girl's various attributes (most likely his wife Jessica Biel). "She's just like nothing that I've ever seen before," he intones, "And please, don't change nothing, because your flavor's so original."
  • We have many other songs on our database where the singer admits to sweetness being his weakness. Here's a selection covering several different genres:
    "Candy " by LL Cool J.
    "Cherry Pie" by Warrant.
    "Cookie Jar" by Gym Class Heroes.
    "Lollipop" by The Chordettes.
