The 25 Best Justin Timberlake Songs

18. Ciara f/ Justin Timberlake "Love Sex Magic" (2009)

Producer: The Y's, Mike Elizondo
Album: Fantasy Ride

It was the ballad Ciara was needed, and she relied on Timberlake for the sensual chorus that's similar to much of his work on FutureSex/LoveSounds. It had that retro beat, a departure from Ciara's music at the time. The song, nominated for a Best Pop Collab Grammy, hit No. 10 on the charts and wound up becoming the radio hit that <em>Fantasy Ride</em> was light on. Timberlake's force on the track pushed it to a level of success that, without him, may not have existed. Lauren Nostro
