Single of the Day: Justin Timberlake – Take Back the Night 

Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Seperti yang dijanjikan. di paruh kedua 2013, Justin Timberlake akan merilis bagian kedua dari album The 20/20 Experience. Direncanakan rilis di bulan September mendatang, Timberlake memberi pemanasan dengan merilis single perdana untuk album tersebut yang bertajuk Take Back the Night.

Dalam Take Back the Night, Timberlake menghadirkan melodi yang mengalir dengan smooth dengan penekanan pada kata “dance“, meski secara tempo single ini berjalan dalam pergerakan medium ketimbang benar-benar up-tempo. Yang harus dicermati dance yang ditawarkan oleh Justin Timberlake bersama kolaborator penulisnya, Timbaland, Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon dan James Fauntleroy sama sekali jauh dari elektro-pop yang mewabah saat ini.

Dalam semangat retro disco RnB, banyak yang mungkin menyamakan Take Back the Night dengan lagu-lagu Michael Jackson di era 80an, akan tetapi karena Jackson memang salah satu panutan Timberlake, hal tersebut tentunya bukan menjadi isu yang signifikan. Bagaimana Timberlake menghadirkan semangat groovy yang soulful dan berkelas, menjadi kelebihan single yang mungkin tidak terlalu ear-worm ini.

Akan tetapi Timberlake dalam Take Back the Night mungkin memang bukan mengejar sesuatu yang terlalu pop-ish, karena disco-funk yang mewarnai dalam lagunya seolah-olah menjadi sebuah tribut akan subgenre tersebut sekaligus menghadirkan aransemen yang cantik dan memikat, alih-alih catchy dan easy listening.

Memang, dibandingkan single-single yang dirilis Timberlake untuk album The 20/20 Experience bagian pertama, secara tone, Take Back the Night memang agak berbeda. Apakah ini menjadi penanda jika The 20/20 Experience bagian kedua akan sedikit berbeda? Kita lihat saja nanti.

LYRIC
Yeah, uh, feels good, don’t it?
Listen, uh

[Verse 1:]
Yeah, this was your city
You did it all and more, broke every law except for one, babe
Attraction, are you ready
I know you feel it
Pull you nearer ’til you feel it again, oh

[Bridge:]
I wanna do something right
But we can do something better
Ain’t no time like tonight
And we ain’t trying to save it ’til later
Stay out here living the life
Nobody cares who we are tomorrow
You got that lil’ something I like
A little something I’ve been wanting to borrow

Tonight the night’s, come on surrender
I won’t lead your love astray, astray, yeah
Your love’s a weapon
Give your body some direction
That’s my aim
Then, we could

[Chorus:]
Take back the night
Come on, use me up until there’s nothing left
Take back the night
Dizzy, spinning, sweating, you can’t catch your breath
Take back the night
Ooh, don’t know when the sun is rising next
Take back the night
So if the feeling’s right, then raise your glass and let’s

[Post-Chorus:]
Take back the night, take back the night
They gon’ try to shut us down, I’ll be damned if we gon’ let them
Take back the night, take back the night
You know you gon’ mess around and find out there ain’t no one better

Take back the night, oh
Yeah

[Verse 2:]
Rare, there’s not too many
No one but you and crowded rooms, we can do anything (yeah)
Attraction can drive you crazy
The way you move, you go crazy, that’s incentive for me

[Bridge:]
I wanna do something right
But we can do something better
Ain’t no time like tonight
And we ain’t trying to save it ’til later
Stay out here living the life
Nobody cares who we are tomorrow
You got that lil’ something I like
A little something I’ve been wanting to borrow

Tonight the night’s, come on surrender
I won’t lead your love astray, astray, yeah
Your love’s a weapon
Give your body some direction
That’s my aim
Then, we could

[Chorus:]
Take back the night
Come on, use me up until there’s nothing left
Take back the night
Dizzy, spinning, sweating, you can’t catch your breath
Take back the night
Ooh, don’t know when the sun is rising next
Take back the night
So if the feeling’s right, then raise your glass and let’s

[Post-Chorus:]
Take back the night, take back the night
They gon’ try to shut us down, I’ll be damned if we gon’ let them
Take back the night, take back the night
You know you gon’ mess around and find out there ain’t no one better

[Middle 8:]
And the horns say, alright
And the horns say, alright
Uh, ooh, and the horns say, alright
And the horns say
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Take it over
Yeah, yeah

[Timbaland:]
Y’all ready to have a good time out there, ladies and gentlemen?

Take back the night, take back the night…

[Chorus:]
Take back the night
Come on, use me up until there’s nothing left
Take back the night
Dizzy, spinning, sweating, you can’t catch your breath
Take back the night
Ooh, don’t know when the sun is rising next
Take back the night
So if the feeling’s right, then raise your glass and let’s
Take back the night
