Rock Your Body Song


Justin Timberlakes 'Rock Your Body' was originally written by Pharrell for Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson was originally offered "Rock Your Body" by The Neptunes. The song was instead recorded by Justin Timberlake, who featured the track as a single on his debut solo album, "Justified." The song was intended for Jackson's 2001 album, "Invincible."

"We Found Love" also wasn't the only single that Rihanna got the chance to record after other artists passed. Her 2008 hit "Disturbia" was written by the singer's on-again, off-again boyfriend Chris Brown and his team, and was originally intended for CB. Christina Milian had the chance to sing "S.O.S." but passed on the track, leading Rihanna to release the hit single as a part of her second studio album, 2006's "A Girl Like Me." Even Rihanna's major collaboration with Jay-Z, 2007's "Umbrella," was rejected by another artist — none other than Britney Spears. Spears' management reportedly passed on "Umbrella" when The-Dream offered the track.
