  • Instead of mixed, I would describe critical reviews as "lukewarm". Mixed implies that some reviews were positive.
  • Remove the reference from after the "ballpark" quote. Unneeded
    • Quotes are supposed to be referenced.  — Statυs (talk, contribs) 01:39, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
      • You're right, nvm. Arre 02:09, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
Background and production
  • Up until "February 11, 2007", everything is sourced by ref 3. Remove the repeated refs. Do the same for the end of the paragraph, where ref 3 is repeated again.
  • Do the same for ref 1 repeated twice.
  • "...reaching out to the artists on her list, by phone and bye e-mail" ---> sounds a bit improper. Change it to "reaching out to the artists on her list, through phone and e-mail".
  • Unlink country? "Country music" is linked four times in this article, and it's a short article.
Composition and critical response
  • "Timberlake performs harmonies throughout the song.[6] Allmusic's Thom Jurek praised Timberlake's harmonies, writing that "it's a welcome surprise" and that it's "more about serving the song than about not being able to sing".[6]" ---> "Timberlake's harmonies performed throughout the song were praised by Allmusic's Thom Jurek, who wrote that "it's a welcome surprise" which is "more about serving the song than about not being able to sing".[6]"
  • No problem here, but could there be a "Commercial performance" section, or brief sum-up of its performance on the charts before the weekly chart table? Maybe explaining what the Bubbling Under chart is (just explain how it acts as an extension to the Hot 100 etc). And add dates as to when it charted.
    • The only specific information I could find is about its debut on the Pop 100. There's no other info about its charting in Google Books.  — Statυs (talk, contribs) 01:44, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
      • Oh, thats okay. It looks fine in Composition/reception. At least there is something about it mentioned in the body. Arre 02:11, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
  • For the source about their live performance, the MTV News ones is before it happened, so it's not really giving confirmation that it actually happened. It's not a big issue but could you possibly find another source, that states the performance did happen?
    • I tried to find one, but couldn't.  — Statυs (talk, contribs) 01:39, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
      • I've just found one here: [1] from Variety. It doesn't say the date, but it does prove that they performed. Keep the other MTV News ref there, too. There's also one on Oprah's website if you search Google. Arre 02:09, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
        • The Variety ref says they appeared on the show, correction. Add it anyway, it still proves that they were on the show. Arre 02:27, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Overall the article is pretty well written. Though brief, it has great information about how the song was produced. Once my points are addressed, I'll happily pass. Arre 01:24, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
  • Passed now. Great work! Arre 06:05, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
