"What Goes Around... Comes Around" is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake for his second studio album FutureSex/LoveSounds (2006). It was written and produced by Timberlake, Timbaland, and Danja. The song was said by Timberlake to be about betrayal and forgiveness, and was described by some music critics as a "sequel" to his 2002 single "Cry Me a River". The song received generally positive reviews from music critics.

The song was sent to United States radio on January 8, 2007, as the album's third single. It became Timberlake's third consecutive number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Internationally the song was also successful, reaching the top ten in countries such as the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, Germany, and Australia. The song was later certified two-times platinum in Australia, Gold in the United States and gold in New Zealand. The song received positive reviews from music critics. The song won Best Male Pop Vocal Performance at the 50th Grammy Awards, where it also received a nomination for Record of the Year.

The Samuel Bayer-directed music video was released February 7, 2007. Actress Scarlett Johansson plays Timberlake's love interest in the video. The video received the award for Best Direction at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards and was also nominated for Video of the Year.

Background and production[edit]

After the release of his debut solo album Justified in 2002, Timberlake thought he "lost his voice" in the sense that he did not like what he was doing.[1] When he felt inspired to compose songs again, he did not choose to reunite with his former band 'N Sync, although he considered doing it after his first record.[2] Instead, he went to former Justified collaborator Timbaland's studio in Virginia Beach, Virginia to begin sessions for his second album.[1][3] However, no one of them had an idea of what the album would be–no plan for it and even a title.[3] Timberlake revealed: "I thought if I could put something together that lived up to the first record, I would have."[1] He told his collaborators to do a remake of his previous single, "Cry Me a River".[3] Danja, a protégé of Timbaland, stated: "We had no direction at all other than 'Cry Me a River,' and not in the sense of mimicking the track, but in how big the song was. There was no direction for how he wanted the song to sound, because there was no direction for how he wanted [his album FutureSex/LoveSounds] to sound."[3]

The song was written and produced by Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, and Nate "Danja" Hills. While in the studio, the three men were just "fooling around" and "freestyling".[3] When Danja began playing a guitar riff, it caught Timberlake's attention. Timberlake started humming to the melody, and then the lyrics came. Timbaland, who was at his keyboards beside Danja, added drums to the melody. Danja commented that "everything was coming together at the same time".[3] After coming up with the music, Timberlake never wrote down the lyrics and, in an hour, he was ready to record it. By the time Timberlake was in the vocal booth, the basic track was done, then Timbaland produced a prelude of the song. Timberlake sang the song in a couple of takes and went back line by line to fill up the gaps. During the recording sessions, Timbaland and Danja added everything else, including the basses and strings. Danja compared the process to scoring to a movie, thinking the song was like a horror flick.[3]

"What Goes Around... Comes Around" was pivotal to the creation of FutureSex/LoveSounds. After finishing the production of the song, Timbaland teased Timberlake. Timberlake responded: "Let's do something we would never do. Let's go far left and just see what happens."[3] His answer motivated the collective, and they ended up producing ten songs for the album.[1]

Composition and interpretation[edit]

"What Goes Around.../...Comes Around" is a pop-R&B song performed in a slow manner.[4] It is composed in the key of A Dorian (A Minor) in common time. With a gentle and midtempo beat,[5] the tempo is pacing to 76 beats per minute.[4] The song features a two-minute interlude titled "Comes Around", featuring the album's producer Timbaland, spanning to a seven minute and 28-second track. Timberlake's voice ranges from B3 to C6.[4] Musically, the song is similar to the type of music produced on Timberlake's Justified album; however, it is the only link from FutureSex/LoveSounds to Justified.[2]

In the beginning of the song, there is a five-second harmony line of two bağlamas (one each panned far left and far right on respect octaves), an Anatolian folk instrument. The beat is then changed to a more upbeat version of the same melody with more percussion. Timbaland used the oud to mellow out the guitar riff.[3] The chord series follows the Am-C-G-D keys. Following the instrumental, Timberlake begins the verse at thirteenth bar. The original track had a bridge, including the pre-verses, the verses and the choruses. After hearing the vocals of Timberlake, they decided to remove the bridge and follow a simple flow, because they felt its "too much" to have it and a break at the end of the song.[3] Timbaland provides backing vocals on the song.

"What Goes Around.../...Comes Around" is about betrayal and forgiveness.[6] Timberlake revealed that the song was written for the experience his friend went through.[2] However, the public came up with different interpretation of the lyrics, that being a sequel to "Cry Me A River". Bill Lamb wrote that the song has a "cautionary tale in the lyrics".[5] According to him, many fans and critics alike, after hearing the song, insisted that it is similar in meaning to "Cry Me a River", which allegedly accounts to Timberlake's relationship with former girlfriend, pop singer Britney Spears.[5] Spence D. of IGN commented that the song presents "some intriguing ambiance".[7]

Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

The song received generally positive reviews from critics. Rolling Stone called the single "a soaring ballad featuring Timberlake's falsetto, with verses and choruses that pile on top of one another with dizzying effect."[8] About.com reviewer Bill Lamb stated that the song "is one of the most gorgeous pop melodies of the year." He complimented the string-based arrangement of the song.[5] Chris Willman of Entertainment Weekly called it "superior", along with "LoveStoned".[9] Zach Baron of Pitchfork Media referred to it "some real can't-let-go shit that'll save you the repeat stabs on the bad night."[10] Spence D. of IGN called it "annoying" but he complimented the use of echo vocals and swirling synths.[7]

"What Goes Around.../...Comes Around" placed at number twenty-four on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2007.[11] The song was nominated twice at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards, winning Best Male Pop Vocal Performance but lost to Amy Winehouse's "Rehab" for Record of the Year.[12]

"What Goes Around.../...Comes Around" was commercially successful in the United States. The single debuted at number 64 on December 23, 2006 on the Billboard Hot 100, prior to its physical release.[13] From number eight on February 24, 2007,[14] it propelled to number one the following week. "What Goes Around.../...Comes Around" became Timberlake's third consecutive number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 from his Futuresex/Lovesounds album, becoming the first male artist since Usher in 2004 to have three or more consecutive number-one hits from one album.[15] The single charted on Hot 100 for 25 weeks.[16] "What Goes Around.../...Comes Around" was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America on June 7, 2007.[17] By September 3, 2010, the song had passed the two million sales plateau,[18] and has sold 2,375,000 copies as of April 2013.[19]

It stayed on the chart for 22 weeks.[16] The single entered the top five in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Norway, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland.[16] In Australia, the single debuted and peaked at number three on the Australian ARIA singles chart on March 26, 2007, gaining the Highest Debut certification.[23] It spent a total of 22 weeks on the chart.[16] "What Goes Around.../...Comes Around" was certified two-times platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association for selling over 30,000 units.[24] The single peaked at number three in the New Zealand on April 9, 2007, and spent 16 weeks on the chart.[16][25] "What Goes Around.../...Comes Around" was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand.[26]

Director Samuel Bayer and Timberlake chose American actress Scarlett Johansson after deciding on using "real" actors for the music video to "What Goes Around... Comes Around".[27]

The music video for the "What Goes Around... Comes Around" was produced as a short movie.[27][28] The video was directed by Samuel Bayer, who had first directorial works with Nirvana's 1991 single "Smells Like Teen Spirit".[27][28] The video features dialogues written by Alpha Dog writer and director Nick Cassavetes, who had previously worked with Timberlake in the film.[27][28] Timberlake and Bayer enlisted American actress Scarlett Johansson after deciding on using "real" actors.[27] The shooting went for three days between Christmas and New Year's Eve in Los Angeles.[27] The dawn scene was shot on January 8, after the original sessions were done.[27]

Synopsis[edit]

The video starts off with Timberlake flirting with Johansson on the Burlesque - style club. She rejects with a tease at first but eventually leaves with him to go back to his place. In between cuts, they are shown in bed caressing each other. Johansson jumps into a pool outside the house, and floats below the surface as if she is drowning. Timberlake runs out and pulls her up; she laughs at Timberlake and kisses him.

In another scene, Timberlake introduces her to a drunk Shawn Hatosy at the club calling her "The One". Hatosy seems to be interested in Johansson and Timberlake asks him to "keep an eye on her for me" perhaps suspecting she has another man on the side. Timberlake returns and finds them kissing in the stairway. After punching Hatosy he chases after Johansson, who speeds off in her 1967 Chevrolet Corvette C2 Sting Ray; Timberlake follows in his Porsche Carrera GT. Johansson runs into a fiery car crash pile up and is ejected from the car as it tumbles through the air and lands several feet away 2 times. Timberlake notices a motionless body lying supine on the ground. He gets out and kneels over her while the camera view moves toward the sky.

Some scenes shows Timberlake performing on the stairway with a microphone while a group of unknown girls with red paint on their eyes are seen dancing next to him while one (Johansson) is seen waving her batons with fire on them near the end of the video.
