Kate and Leopold flies on the sweet chemistry of Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman, the X-Men star who shows a real flair for romantic comedy. Ryan stars as Kate, a harried New York marketing exec who finds Mr. Right in Leopold (Jackman), another New Yorker. There's a catch: Leopold, the third Duke of Albany, has time-traveled from 1876 through a trick devised by Stuart (Liev Schreiber), Leopold's great-great-grandson and Kate's ex-boyfriend. She falls for the hunk's old-world chivalry. But, hey, if Kate connects with Leopold, does that make her Stuart's great-great-grandmother? No sweat. Director and co-writer James Mangold (Girl, Interrupted) is supplying comfort food for bruised romantics.

    “Promiscuous”

    Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

    This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
