"I'm Lovin' It" is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake. It was written by Pharrell Williams, Tom Batoy, Andreas Forberger and Franco Tortora and produced by The Neptunes.

The song was written as a jingle for McDonald's commercials, based on a pre-existing German campaign originally developed as "Ich Liebe Es."[1] Timberlake was paid $6 million to sing the jingle. Soon thereafter, the Neptunes produced a song based on the jingle and released it (along with an instrumental version) as part of a three-track EP in November 2003. A digital download EP with the same name was also released through the iTunes Store on December 16, 2003. The extended play included the title-track and a remix for all of the singles from Timberlake's first solo studio album, Justified.[2] The song was also included on the bonus audio CD of Timberlake's first live DVD, Live From London.[1]

A music video to promote the single was released in late 2003 and was directed by Paul Hunter.

Rapper Pusha T revealed his involvement with the song in June 2016 and claimed that he had created the "I'm Lovin' It" jingle.[3] However, co-writers Batoy and Tortora, as well as several others involved with the jingle's creation, have disputed his claim.[3]
