Justin Timberlake's SexyBack was released on 18 July 2006. Yes, that's right, 11 years ago.

It won a Grammy for Best Dance Recording in 2007 and became his first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100.

It was a simply massive track because it was magnetic, sexually charged and featured absolutely iconic synth.

Timberlake has recently tried to claim it's all about a pet rabbit.

A rabbit called "Sexy" who he was looking after for some friends on holiday; friends who were concerned he may not return the rabbit.


I'm bringing Sexy back.

In a chat with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert he explained the entire story, you can find it around the four-minute mark:

We're not sure we buy this.

Especially when he was saying to the Rabbit:

Dirty babe

You see these shackles, baby 

I'm your slave

I'll let you whip me if I misbehave

It's just that no one makes me feel this way

That sounds like animal cruelty.
