Justin Timberlake is no stranger to a good collaboration. His wide-ranging voice blends seamlessly throughout a number of genres, and his decades-long experience in the music industry has allowed him to make several high-profile, talented friends along the way.

The superstar is now teaming up again with his longtime collaborators Timbaland and Nelly Furtado for a new song called “Keep Going Up!,” out Friday (Sept. 1). Leading up to the release, Tim posted a teaser video for “Keep Going Up!,” which he captioned “WE BACK,” alongside peeking eyes and exploding head emojis. “Da king has returned!” The tease came a month after his Instagram post in which he and Timberlake hopped on a FaceTime call with Furtado while the pair worked on Tim’s upcoming sixth studio album.

In honor of his decades of music magic, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite JT collabs, from pop to hip-hop and R&B. See them below.

  • “Give It to Me” – Timbaland feat. Nelly Furtado, Justin Timberlake

    Before “Keep Going Up!,” Timbaland, JT and Nelly teamed up for the infectious “Give It to Me,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2007.

    Listen here.

  • “Dead & Gone” – T.I. feat. Justin Timberlake

    In 2008, this song was inescapable. The single came following T.I.’s smash Paper Trail album, which claimed two Hot 100 No. 1s with “Whatever You Like” and the Rihanna-assisted “Live Your Life.” T.I.’s flow mixed with JT’s melodic chorus paints a cinematic picture of leaving your old self in the past.

    Listen here.

  • “My Love” – Justin Timberlake feat. T.I.

    Speaking of T.I. collabs, 2006’s “My Love” was a definite standout from Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveSounds album. The album is still a staple at clubs, and gets the whole crowd going with the instantly recognizable opening line of “Ain’t another woman that can take your spot, my love.”

    Listen here.

  • “SexyBack (Remix)” – Justin Timberlake feat. Missy Elliot & Timbaland

    Yes, we all know JT brought sexy back with Timbaland on his 2006 hit, but did you know the song got a fun twist from Missy Elliott? The DJ Wayne Williams Ol’ Skool Remix of the tune features a new opening verse from Elliott and another flow before Timberlake’s last verse. Elliott puts references the already risqué lyrics in her own way by rapping, “Don’t you like the way I make you be my little slave?/ Whip you like a kid every time you misbehave.”

  • “Love Sex Magic” – Ciara feat. Justin Timberlake

    The songstress called on JT for her 2009 Fantasy Ride tune. The duo trade honeyed and sultry verses alongside an equally seductive music video in which Ciara gets flexible on an attentive Justin.

    Listen here.

  • “TKO (Remix)” – Justin Timberlake feat. A$AP Rocky, J. Cole and Pusha T

    A total knockout to say the least. A$AP Rocky, J. Cole and Pusha T trade verses on a cold-hearted woman over The 20/20 Experience track’s menacing beat, before JT comes in with the explosive chorus.

    Listen here.

  • “Holy Grail” – Justin Timberlake feat. Jay-Z

    Jay-Z and JT explore the struggles with fame in the lead single off the rapper’s 2013 album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. “Caught up in all these lights and cameras/ But look what that s—- did to Hammer/ Goddammit I like it,” Jay-Z raps in his verse, in response to JT’s proclamation, “Sipping from your cup ’til it runneth over, Holy Grail.”

    Listen here.

  • “Cabaret” – Justin Timberlake feat. Drake

    JT’s process for seduction is laid out in the alluring “Cabaret,” featured on his 2013 album, The 20/20 Experience. Drizzy hops in for a high-energy third verse, rapping, “Got a bunch of old girls that I threw away for ya/ I been in the gym doing two-a-days for ya/ So I can lift ya up when I do the thang to ya.”

    Listen here.

  • “Until the End of Time” – Justin Timberlake feat. Beyonce

    The originally solo song off FutureSex/LoveSounds got a dreamy remix thanks to Queen Bey, as the duo muse about everlasting love.

    Listen here.

  • “Like I Love You” – Justin Timberlake feat. Clipse

    Still one of Timberlake’s fan favorites, “Like I Love You” was the lead single off his 2002 debut solo album, Justified. The must-have tune for a night out features production from The Neptunes (Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams) and a verse from Clipse (Pusha T and No Malice).

    Listen here.

  • “Ayo Technology” – 50 Cent feat. Justin Timberlake

    “Ayo, I’m tired of using technology/Why don’t you sit down on top of me?” Timberlake declares to his “new-age” girl in the chorus of this 2007 hit, which peaked at No. 5 on the Hot 100.

    Listen here.

  • “Rehab” – Rihanna feat. Justin Timberlake

    RiRi called on the crooner for the Good Girl Gone Bad cut for the background vocals, and the two get close in the steamy music video.

    Listen here.

  • “Suit & Tie” – Justin Timberlake feat. Jay-Z

    The moment we had all been waiting for in 2013. Timberlake had been on a six-year hiatus since the release of FutureSex/LoveSounds, and finally satisfied fans itching for new music with the release of The 20/20 Experience’s lead single, “Suit & Tie.” The sleek, nostalgic tune features a guest verse from frequent collaborator Jay-Z, who stunts that the duo are decked in “Tom Ford tuxedos for no reason.”

    Listen here.

  • “Say Something” – Justin Timberlake feat. Chris Stapleton

    JT’s 2018 album, Man of the Woods, only had two features, and they did not disappoint. “Say Something” was the star track of the album, marking Timberlake’s first musical dip into his country, Tennesseean roots. The modern-yet-acoustic feel to the tune is complete with Stapleton’s husky vocals and the duo’s soaring harmonies.

    Listen here.

  • “Morning Light” – Justin Timberlake feat. Alicia Keys

    Man of the Woods’ second collab comes in the form of the peaceful love song with vocals from Alicia Keys. “I’m in love with you/ Laying here in the morning light/ And all I want to do, is hold you tight just one more night/ Yes I’m in love with you,” the duo sing in the sugary sweet chorus.

    Listen here.

  • “4 Minutes” – Madonna feat. Justin Timberlake

    The Queen of Pop and Timberlake share a flirtatious back-and-forth in this 2008 hit, as they claim to have the four-minute length of the song to “save the world.” The urgency builds in the “tick tock tick tock” Madonna teases at the end before the tune’s final breakdown.
