Justin Timberlake’s Best Songs, Ranked

1 of 21

The great thing about Justin Timberlake is that he is loved by men and women alike. His albums are full of all single-worthy songs, and you can't find a song you don't like. With the release of his "The 20/20 Experience—2 of 2", and with his tour coming to an end soon, we decided to compile a list of Justin's best songs and we ranked them from 20 to 1. It was very hard to rank these songs, as they are all amazing, but we did our best.

How would you have changed the order? Were there any you would have added to the list? Check it out!

20. FutureSex/LoveSounds

Album: FutureSex/LoveSounds

The intro song on his second album, this whole song kind of sounds like one big chorus. One big, sexy chorus. It's overly sexual, and overly addicting.

19. That Girl

Album: The 20/20 Experience

A must listen off this album, it probably won't be a big hit. JT's declaring his love for his woman. We wonder who?!

18. T.K.O

Album: The 20/20 Experience—2 of 2

Critics are calling it an "underwhelming single". Um, no. All true JT fans love anything and everything he does, and we LOVE it! T.K.O is about a bad breakup and anyone who says it's about Britney needs to shut up and get over it.

17. Take Back The Night

Album: The 20/20 Experience—2 of 2

This song, like most JT songs, is about a potential love interest, and is just a good general dance song.

16. Sexy Back

Album: FutureSex/LoveSounds

The song that introduced us to his second studio album. Maybe not his best lyrically we can agree, but catchy and raw as hell. It was Justin's first number 1 hit, and stayed on top of the chart for 7 weeks.

15. Take It From Here

Album: Justified

Lost in the shadows of the biggest hits of Justified like "Señorita" and "Like I Love You", "Take It From Here" isn't very well known. A truly great song about what a man wants to do and what he wants to be for a woman. A must listen if you don't know it.

14. Still On My Brain

Album: Justified

Get to know this song if you don't! One of the most underrated Justin songs across all 4 of his albums. It's about the person you are no longer with, but they are always on your mind.

13. Like I Love You

Album: Justified

The first single off his debut solo album, JT performed this on the MTV Video Music awards, and from that moment when he busted out of the jukebox, we were all instantly obsessed.

12. Summer Love

Album: FutureSex/LoveSounds

So unbelievably catchy. It's about ""wanting to fall in love with the lusty seasonal lover". Something most people have experienced at least once in their life. Not one of JT's biggest hits, but it's so catchy and fun.

11. LoveStoned/I Think She Knows

Album: FutureSex/LoveSounds

The best part of this song is the interlude where you hear the riff, and Justin slows the song down. Being "lovestoned" is said to be in the ultimate state of love. Surprisingly, this song only peaked at number 17 on the charts.

10. Rock Your Body

Album: Justified

This song is just too much fun, and will always get you dancing when it comes on. Never passing the number 5 spot on the charts, it was definitely number 1 to all of us! Classic, fun, dance song for anywhere and everywhere.

9. Senorita

Album: Justified

If this song comes on at a bar, guys and girls are signing it no doubt. Peaking at number 5, JT said this song was inspired by Stevie Wonder. It's about a man trying to get the affection and attention from a woman. Everybody sings the "it feels like something's heating up..." line and so on at the end, and you love it.

8. Pusher Love Girl

Album: The 20/20 Experience

The song is about "the intoxicating effects of love and sex" and is the first song on Justin's 20/20 album. It may or may not be the next single off the album, but it's definitely one you want to familiarize yourself with.

7. (Another Song) All Over Again

Album: FutureSex/LoveSongs

Another gem. A perfect slow song about getting a second chance in love. If you aren't familiar with it, get familiar with it and you'll be obsessed. It's a perfectly raw song about a man admitting his mistakes, almost a predecessor to "If I Was Your Man" by Bruno Mars.

6. Suit & Tie

Album: The 20/20 Experience

The song that let us know Justin was BACK! The first single from his 3rd studio album, peaking at number 3 on the charts. It had been 5 and half years and we were waiting for another album from the master. He came back bigger and better than ever.

5. Until The End Of Time

Album: Futuresex/LoveSounds

Not enough people know this song. An unbelievably beautiful ballad. On the Futuresex/LoveSounds album, it is a solo performance by Justin, but there is also a duet version with Beyonce which some could argue is better. It was not one of his biggest hits, but definitely should have been.

4. Mirrors

Album: The 20/20 Experience

A more beautiful song than most people realize. Never reaching number 1, this single peaked at number 2. The song is a tribute to his wife, and to his grandparent. He dedicates the whole video to his grandmother and late grandfather and it is absolutely beautiful.

3. What Goes Around... Comes Around

Album: Futuresex/LoveSounds

JT's 3rd consecutive number 1 on the charts from his second studio album. This song caused speculation on if it was about Britney Spears, because she received her bad karma. Justin, however, protests that this song is about his friend Trace Ayala who was dating Elisha Cuthbert, and she had cheated on him.

2. Cry Me A River

Album: Justified

Ah yes, the "FU Britney" song. We all knew it was about Britney, but it was until the last few years that JT actually admitted it. It's everyone's favorite break up song, for all those who have been cheated on. How do you cheat on Justin Timberlake? The song peaked at number 3 on the charts, surprising since it will go down as one of his most memorable songs of all time.

1. Medley: Let Me Talk To You/My Love

Album: Futuresex/LoveSounds

Justin says this song isn't about marriage like some people thought, but more a "humble approach" to love. It was his second number 1 hit off Futuresex/LoveSounds after SexyBack.
