Justin Timberlake Currently Has the No. 1 Song in the U.S. but It’s Not His Hit

Justin Timberlake and Timbaland have been writing hits together for years and have recorded at least 15 Top 10 singles, many of them hitting No. 1 status, on the Hot 100 chart since they began collaborating nearly two decades ago.

This week, the duo can add one more No. 1 smash to their portfolio. Only, neither of their names are listed on it.

As Forbes points out, Halsey interpolated Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River,” on her latest single “Without Me,” which just so happened to top the charts this week. “You don’t have to say just what you did/ I already know (I know)/ I had to go and find out from them,” she sings on the song’s bridge, twisting the words of the original to fit her song’s needs. At the time, the 24-year-old took to Twitter to explain that she had not directly sampled the song in her own. Even so, Timberlake and Timbaland are listed as co-writers on “Without Me.”

Oddly enough, “Cry Me A River” never did end up making it to No. 1 when it was released in 2003. It peaked at No. 3. But thanks to Halsey, Timberlake and Timbaland will reap the benefits of yet another No. 1 single.
