Justin Timberlake - "Cry Me A River"
Disses: Britney Spears
"Cry Me A River" is infectious proof of the old adage "success is the best revenge." As the second single from Justin Timberlake's debut solo album, "Cry Me A River" climbed to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, #3 on the Billboard US Pop Chart, and #2 on the UK Singles Chart, topping his first single "Like I Love You" and ultimately landing the singer a Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.
Written and recorded after an argument with ex-girlfriend Britney Spears, Justin hopped in the studio with producer Timbaland and exorcized his relationship demons with a massive, cutting chorus, "You told me you loved me/Why did you leave me, all alone?" The video added further insult to injury, depicting Timberlake exacting revenge on a Spears doppelgänger.
