Justin Timberlake covers Bell Biv DeVoe's 'Poison,' drives us right out of our mind

Sexy isn’t all Justin Timberlake is bringing back.

The singer (slash dancer slash actor slash showman of our time) killed the #tbt game this week when his spirited performance of Bell Biv DeVoe’s 1990 hit “Poison” went viral.

Spoiler alert: It’s amazing.

The video, which was actually filmed in 2013 at the Brooklyn stop on Timberlake’s "20/20 Experience" World Tour, was resurrected via DeVoe’s Facebook page last Thursday. It has since been viewed over 17 million times.

Timberlake’s rendition featured the song’s original choreography — and clearly received DeVoe’s stamp of approval.

Timberlake is no stranger to paying homage, whether that means performing “Single Ladies” with Jimmy Fallon or dancing “The Carlton” on the golf course. He also joined Taylor Swift onstage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles during her "1989" World Tour.

His appreciation for artists of all genres — and penchant for putting his own spin on their songs — has become a signature of his charismatic performing style.

The 35-year-old has been laying low recently, having just welcomed his first son with actress Jessica Biel last April.

But considering Justin has been making music since the '90s himself, it’s only matter of time before he’ll back back — along with sexy, of course.
