The track went on to chart in 22 countries, making it to the top spot in 9 countries and on 12 different charts. In the U.S., Timberlake’s ‘SexyBack‘ charted on seven different charts, hitting #1 on three of them — the Billboard Hot 100, the Dance/ Mix Show Airplay chart, and the Mainstream Top 40.

It was also certified Gold or 3-5x Platinum in six countries.

The ‘SexyBack‘ music video was shot in Barcelona due to the atmosphere of the city and its distinct architecture, and features Timberlake and Spanish actress Elena Anaya as spies.

The song has also been so successful with Music Supervisors, it was not only used for last night’s 9-1-1, but also on shows like Cold Feet, Love Island (UK), CSI: NY, and Friday Night Lights.
