Als je als artiest wat extra aandacht nodig hebt, komt een relletje altijd wel van pas. Daar weet Justin Timberlake alles van. Een paar weken geleden moest zijn videoclip bij het nummer Tunnel Vision van YouTube worden gehaald, omdat er volgens de regels van de website teveel naakt in de clip zat. Later werd die beslissing weer teruggedraaid, maar Justin stond door de actie weer mooi een paar dagen vol in de schijnwerpers. Toch is niet Tunnel Vision, maar Take Back The Night de nieuwe single van het ex-lid van boyband *Nsync. En ook dit nummer zorgde in de Verenigde Staten voor een relletje. De directie van de Take Back The Night Foundation, een stichting die opkomt voor de belangen van vrouwen die met verkrachting te maken hebben gehad, vindt de tekst van deze hit namelijk te seksueel getint en is bovendien niet blij met het feit dat de titel van Justins nieuwe single wel erg veel lijkt op de naam van de organisatie. Inmiddels heeft Justin de boel gesust door te ontkennen dat hij op de hoogste was van het bestaan van de stichting en dat hij het initiatief graag wil steunen. Take Back The Night is de voorloper op alweer een nieuw album (The 20/20 Experience: 2 Of 2) van Justin Timberlake.

Songtekst

Yeah, uh, haha
Feels good, don't it, uh
Uh, Listen, uh

Yeah, this was your city
You did it all and more, broke every law except for one, babe
Attraction, are you ready
I know you feel it, pull you nearer ’til you feel it again, oh

I wanna do something right
But we can do something better
Ain’t no time like tonight
And we ain’t trying to save it for later
You stay out here living the life (Yeah)
Nobody cares who we are tomorrow (Come on now)
You got that little something I like
A little something I’ve been wanting to borrow (Uh)

Tonight the night’s, come on, surrender
I won’t lead your love astray
Astray, yeah
Your love’s a weapon
Give your body some direction
That’s my aim
Then we could

Take back the night
Come on, use me up until there’s nothing left
Take back the night
Dizzy, spinning, sweating, you can’t catch your breath, yeah
Take back the night
Ooh, don’t know when the sun is rising next
Take back the night
So if the feeling’s right, then raise your glass and let’s

Take back the night, oh
Take back the night, oh
They gon’ try to shut us down
I’ll be damned if we gon’ let them
Take back the night, oh
Take back the night, ooh
You know you gon’ mess around
And find out there ain’t no one better
Take back the night, oh
Yeah, uh

Rare, there’s not too many
No one but you and crowded rooms, we can do anything
Attraction can drive you crazy
And the way you're moving, you go crazy, that’s incentive for me

I wanna do something right (Yeah)
But we can do something better
Ain’t no time like tonight
And we ain’t trying to save it for later
You stay out here living the life
Nobody cares who we are tomorrow
And you got that little something I like
A little something I’ve been wanting to borrow

Tonight the night’s, come on, surrender
I won’t lead your love astray
Astray, yeah
Your love’s a weapon
Give your body some direction
That’s my aim
Then we could

Take back the night
Come on, use me up until there’s nothing left
Take back the night
Dizzy, spinning, sweating, you can’t catch your breath
Take back the night
Ooh, don’t know when the sun is rising next
Take back the night
So if the feeling’s right, then raise your glass and let’s

Take back the night, oh
Take back the night, oh
They gon’ try to shut us down
I’ll be damned if we gon’ let them
Take back the night, oh
Take back the night, ooh
You know you gon’ mess around
And find out there ain’t no one better
Take back the night

Uh, break it down
Uh, break it, break it down, uh
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Yeah, yeah, oh
Uh, haha, uh

And the horns say: alright
And the horns say: alright
Ooh, and the horns say: alright
And the horns say
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, take it over
Yeah, yeah

Y’all ready to have a good time out there, ladies and gentlemen
Ladies and gentlemen, JT, haha, it takes you a kiss (Alright)
Let your hair down, baby

Take back the night
Take back the night
Take back the night
Ooh, we don’t know when the sun is rising next
Take back the night
The feeling’s right, then raise your glass and let’s
Take back the night

Take back the night
They gon’ try to shut us down
I’ll be damned if we gon’ let them
Take back the night, alright
Take back the night
You know you gon’ mess around
And find out there ain’t no one better

And the horns say: alright
