Re-adjustin' my target audience
Cause it's obvious
I've gone astray
Losing my way like Timberlake
Produced by Timbaland on that goddamn FutureSex/LoveSounds

from J. Cole – Villuminati Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Losing My Way is the eleventh song off of Justin Timberlake’s second solo album FutureSex/LoveSounds, which was produced mostly by Timbaland. Timberlake sings about losing his way from addiction, while Cole’s talking about straying from his original intent in making music. Second time around, Cole feels he wants to appeal to his core fans, rather than the ‘mainstream’ or ‘radio’ fans.

Both Timberlake and Cole changed up their styles for their second albums, Timberlake wanted to make more rock-influenced music instead of just dance songs, and Cole is making more intellectual music.

Judging by some of the tracks on ‘'Born Sinner’‘ and any of the ’‘Truly Yours’‘ tapes, Timberland seems to have been an influence on the production style (noticeably on this track and Chris Tucker).
