Coco Jones has roped in Justin Timberlake for a remix of her song 'ICU'. The remix and lyric video dropped on Friday, July 14. 

"Just a couple of Tennessee kids. We got something coming for you tomorrow," Justin (42) wrote a day before the song's release. 

Coco, who is a singer and actress, initially released the R&B ballad in October 2022. The track earned Coco her first charting single. 

'ICU' reached #63 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. The song features on her EP, 'What I Didn't Tell You'.

Coco revealed in a recent interview that the steady success of 'ICU' lit a fire inside of her.

"It really actually motivated me to dream bigger. I think even before this EP I had put my dreams in a box for emotional safety because I couldn't deal with the disappointment anymore. So, to even have this much success and support from my culture, my community - I'm like - I gotta dream bigger. 

"I was that girl who saw all of this so clearly when I was a little kid and then you grow up and reality hits and your dreams get more realistic. But I am not trying to be realistic for nobody...." the 25-year-old said on an episode of the RNB Radar podcast.
