Give It To Me (3:32)

Cover of Shock Value (Edited Version)

From Shock Value (Edited Version) and 14 other releases

Give It to Me is a song recorded by Timbaland, with featured artists Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake, for Timbaland’s second solo album, Shock Value (2007). It was released as the album’s first single.

According to the Give it To Me Songfacts, the song is a dig at several unnamed music stars. Timbaland has confirmed in an interview with MTV that fellow producer Scott Storch, with whom he co-wrote Timberlake’s 2002 single “Cry Me A River,” is the target of his verse.

The song was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards.

The song debuted at number eighty-seven on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in February 2007, coincidentally, it was the week when Furtado’s Say It Right took over the top spot. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in April—when it rose to that position from number forty-two in one week, making it, at the time, the third biggest rise to number one in the chart’s history—because of sales of 248,000 digital downloads. It became Timbaland’s first number-one on his own, Furtado’s third and Timberlake’s fourth consecutive. It is the sixth number-one produced by Timbaland & Danja in under twelve months; others include “SexyBack”, “My Love”, and “What Goes Around…Comes Around” by Timberlake and “Promiscuous” and “Say It Right” by Furtado. The single also peaked at number one on the Billboard Pop 100.

On the UK Singles Chart, “Give It to Me” debuted at number eight and rose to number one the following week, with sales of 27,760 that week.
