Sometimes when it comes to making music, a song that isn't right for one particular artist is perfect for another. At one point, Nicole Scherzinger mentioned this when discussing passing on hit songs like “We Found Love,” “Crazy” and “Just Dance.”

Another artist who passed on a big song is Michael Jackson.

The pop icon said no to “Rock Your Body,” which became a memorable single for Justin Timeberlake. According to the Huffington Post, the songs was made by the Neptunes and was intended to be on Michael Jackson’s album “Invincible” in 2001.  

Instead it was passed along to Timberlake for his debut album “Justified.”
