Rock Your Body (4:27)

Cover of Justified

From Justified and 119 other releases

“Rock Your Body” is the third single from Justin Timberlake’s solo debut album Justified. The song features Vanessa Marquez. She was at that time signed to Star Trak Entertainment. Released in 2003, The Neptunes-produced single peaked at #5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. “Rock Your Body” entered the Australian chart at #1 and stayed there for 1 week. It also became his third #2 hit in the UK Singles Chart.

The beat was intended for Michael Jackson’s 2001 album Invincible, but The Neptunes ended up selling the track to Timberlake instead.

Timberlake performed this song at the Kids’ Choice Awards.

The video features Timberlake dancing. The female lead dancer in the music video is Staci Flood lip-syncing Marquez’s parts of the song.

The video version of the song also features another beatbox breakdown in the middle of the song, much like the one performed in the *NSync single Pop.

While Timberlake was performing this song at the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show with R&B singer Janet Jackson, at the moment he sang the lyric, “I’ll have you naked by the end of this song,” he ripped off part of Jackson’s costume by accident, exposing her right breast on live television.

Timberlake distanced himself from the controversy while Jackson faced much criticism. Timberlake later commented that “America’s harsher on women…and unfairly harsh on ethnic people.”
