“Girlfriend” is a song by American boy band NSYNC. It was released on March 12, 2002 as the third and final single from their third studio album, Celebrity. The Neptunes’ remix was featured on their first compilation album Greatest Hits, alongside their third compilation album The Essential *NSYNC. It was the group’s last song to enter the top ten of the US Billboard Hot 100, following their hiatus in 2002.

Two music videos exist for the single. The first was created for the album version, and features only the band. The original album version of the video was released in January 2002. The music video featured the band dancing on cars, singing to girls and a drag race, which was won by Justin Timberlake.
The Neptunes Remix featured scenes of Nelly spliced between shots of the pre-existing video. He is shown rapping next to Timberlake during both of his rap verses, as well as interacting with female models in the backseat of the car throughout this version of the video. Scenes of Timberlake initiating the drag race in the interlude, which is shown in the original video, are heavily omitted in the Neptunes Remix to accommodate for Nelly’s rap verse, which his second rap verse replaces.
Both video versions were directed by Marc Klasfeld. The album version video debuted on TRL on January 3, 2002, while the Neptunes Remix debuted on March 12, 2002.
