Country music artist Toby Keith also had a hand in the making of Justin Timberlake's new album, 'Man of the Woods.' Find out which track carries his influence...

On February 2nd, Justin Timberlake’s highly-anticipated album Man of the Woods dropped. It took five years for the album to finally be completed, and when it was— it left us all surprised. Unlike the super suave Justin Timberlake we all have gotten used to, we got a slightly less polished and more rugged version of the star.

And while the album didn’t turn out to be a true departure into the country genre like may had hoped, Man of the Woods does feature input from country music stars Chris Stapleton (“Say Something”) and Toby Keith (“Sauce”). “Sauce” is a unique combination of country jam with some funky electric guitar thrown in and it samples Keith’s 2005 hit “As Good As I Once Was.” Officially, “Sauce” was co-written by Timberlake along with Nate Hills, Elliott Ives, and Timothy Mosley.  A representative for Keith confirmed that Keith also has songwriting credit for “Sauce,” but neither Timberlake nor the country star has publicly acknowledged the collaboration.

Check out the audio below and see if you can pick out Keith’s contribution!

“Sauce” Lyrics

Juice, juice is temporary, you know. Anyone can obtain the juice or something
I mean, you could say that just ’cause you got a nice car or something, like
“Oh, man, he got the juice,” you know, it’s something that kind of comes and goes
But the sauce, the sauce is forever

Ooh, sauce
Uh, you got all of it
Yeah
You know, you got all of it
You got all of it
Go ‘head

Ooh, I love your pink, you like my purple
You must be God herself, can I come worship?
Let’s make some new details, just for your journal
‘Cause you keep lookin’ at me with those eyes like you know somethin’ I don’t
So, go ahead, say I won’t
Ain’t nothin’ to it but to do it, throw away that phone
‘Cause I know you miss your snap on a lover, and I can name three or four
But you keep lookin’ at me with those eyes like you know somethin’ I don’t

Hold up
Ooh, ooh, somethin’ comes over me
It’s always loose screws when you get close to me
It’s like too much to describe, yeah, it’s enough for two lives
And I could never spend all of it but at least I’m gon’ try

Ooh, I love your pink, you like my purple
That color right between those, that’s where I worship
Let’s make some new details up in your journal
‘Cause you keep lookin’ at me with those eyes like you know somethin’ I don’t
So, go ahead, say I won’t
Ain’t nothin’ to it but to do it, throw away that phone
‘Cause I know you miss your snap on a lover, and I can name three or four
But you keep lookin’ at me with those eyes like you know somethin’ I don’t

Hold up
Ooh, ooh, somethin’ comes over me
It’s always loose screws when you get close to me
It’s like too much to describe, yeah, it’s enough for two lives
And I could never spend all of it but at least I’m gon’ try

Four times, huh
Yeah, break it down, woo!
Uh

So, so, so, go ahead
Say I won’t
Ain’t nothin’ to it but to do it, throw away that phone
‘Cause I know you miss your snap on a lover, and I can name three or four
But you keep lookin’ at me with those eyes like you know somethin’ I don’t

Hold up
Ooh, ooh, somethin’ comes over me
It’s always loose screws when you get close to me
It’s like too much to describe, yeah, it’s enough for two lives
And I could never spend all of it but at least I’m gon’ try
Ooh, ooh, somethin’ comes over me (over me)
It’s always loose screws when you get close to me (yeah)
It’s like too much to describe, yeah, it’s enough for two lives
And I could never spend all of it but at least I’m gon’ try

Ooh, sauce
You got all of it, go ‘head
Ooh, sauce
Go ‘head, you got all of it, huh
Ooh, sauce
Uh, yeah, you got all of it, go ‘head
Ooh, sauce
Go ‘head, you got all of it, uh
