That would be because Sarah Aarons (the Australian songwriter who did "The Middle") also co-wrote "Stay." :)

Sure, I guess. To be honest, I don't really care about either of them at all, but I do get paid to blog so occasionally I must weigh in. All Justin Timberlake music sounds like alien farts.

February 1, 2018 on Pro-Trump Country Singer Toby Keith Contributed To Justin Timberlake’s Man Of The Woods
I understand where you're coming from, but I don't have a horse in this race. I don't support Justin Timberlake because his music sucks. I don't support Toby Keith because his music sucks, and also because he plays music in front of and implicitly supports a President that would probably rather I and most of my friends were dead in a ditch somewhere. I also don't think it's wrong to point out Timberlake's hypocrisy in this situation, especially when his "Supplies" video was a masturbatory attempt to show how "woke" he is. Both of these people are hella rich and will be fine, I'm a lowly blogger, and the world spins on.
