(CBS) EDITOR'S NOTE:  Representatives for Justin Timberlake have issued a statement saying that the artist did not record "Take You Down." They say the track is actually the work of a Danish artist named Rasmus Thude. Read More.

A new song reportedly by singer-turned-actor Justin Timberlake was leaked online last week, which is likely welcome news for JT fans.

But whether the track is actually good is still up for debate.

"Take You Down," was produced by the Neptunes, according to, but the website says it is unclear whether the track is a demo recorded by another artist, or actually a JT tune.

Either way, the song opens with a barrage of "uh-oh's" and a heavy base track, and then a female voice: "Here he goes again."

So where does the song go?

It's a typical track to be played at the clubs--solid beats and catchy, not too complex, lady-seducing lyrics.

"What's your looks and your religion?/And I want you to understand that I can make you feel better/So it's me and you, my place, sexiness all day/I'mma do whatever you like, if you cater to me all night, girl," he sings.

But for Timberlake, whose hits "Bringing Sexy Back" and "Rock Your Body" were lauded as fantastic dance tunes, this musical venture seems like two steps forward and one step back.

It's great to see him making music again. After "The Social Network," Timberlake fans worried that they would never see him glide across the dance floor again. However, this song is a little disappointing, since the hope was that if he did release new music, it would be amazing.

Maybe our expectations were just a little too high.

Timberlake could redeem himself yet. He may soon release a single with Drake, who said, "I've always wanted to work with him, and it's in the works right now: Me and Justin Timberlake will probably have a song soon," according to MTV.
