The track is the third to be taken from Timberlake's 'The 20/20 Experience' album following 'Suit & Tie' and 'Mirrors', and comes accompanied by a promo which sees the singer's image projected onto the naked bodies of three female models.

While Google does not usually allow nudity in videos (Robin Thicke's video for 'Blurred Lines' was removed from YouTube for breaching the sites guidelines) a spokesperson told ABC News that the video will stay on the site: "While our guidelines generally prohibit nudity, we make exceptions when it is presented in an educational, documentary or artistic context, and take care to add appropriate warnings and age restrictions."

YouTube users must now shows an explicit content warning that they must click on before playing the video on Justin Timberlake's Vevo channel.

Timberlake features on Jay-Z's album, 'Magna Carta Holy Grail', which was officially released today after being unveiled on July 4 via a special app for Samsung. The pair's collaboration, titled 'Holy Grail', is the first song to be taken from the album and uses lyrics from Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'.
