There has been an ongoing debate on the Internet and in the media as to whether Timbaland ripped off the melody and chords for this song from "Acid Jazzed Evening," a 2000 recording by Finnish artist Tempest. Timbaland admitted in a radio interview to sampling the synth line but claimed that he borrowed it from a video game.
