Overall Meaning

The song "SexyBack" by Justin Timberlake is an ode to bringing back the feeling of being sexy and confident in oneself. The lyrics express the idea that Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy back and that other men do not know how to act because they lack the ability to be as confident in their sex appeal as he is. He finds what is behind the girl's back special, hinting at her physical features, and wants her to turn around so that he can pick up the slack and take control. The chorus emphasizes the desire to let loose and get your sexy on, with commands to come to the back, head to the VIP section, let him buy the drinks, and show him what you are twerking with.


The second verse of the song emphasizes the idea that if the girl is with someone, that person should watch out because she will burn it up for him anyway. The repetition of "go 'head be gone with it" emphasizes the need to let go of inhibitions and embrace one's sensuality. The song is an invitation to let loose, feel confident, and be sexy.

Your skin isn't paper, don't cut it

Your neck isn't a coat, don't hang it

Your body isn't a book, don't judge it

Your life isn't a movie, don't end it

Your heart isn't a door, don't lock it

Remember to always love yourself no matter what you come against
