What are the other two?

Toxic and then I heard at some point that Boys was offered to Janet. I also heard it was originally meant for Micheal Jackson and they changed up some of the lyrics for Britney from a woman's perspective which inspired the Co-Ed Remix (the original lyrics from a guy and then Britney's lyrics from a girl).

Yep. He probably meant all but one of the Neptunes tracks on the album.

I loved that experimental phase (2001-2002) of pop thanks to the Neptunes mainly, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo. Then pop had another amazing transitional era in 2006-2007 thanks mainly to timbaland, danja and pharrell williams.

Toxic was offered to Kylie Minougue, not Janet :selenerz_selena_crying_tears_sad:

Lool I mean possibly but Justin Timberlake is known to write his own songs. He was very involved in all his albums lyrically and musically. 

Okay but the producer is confirming that most of the his first album was pre-written for someone else lol. And apparently it's easy to get a writing credit by contributing just a tiny bit. Look at Tik Tik Boom - someone did it before Britney and the lyrics didn't change much on her version but she has a writing credit.

Pharrell said this in 2002. Also, Justin Timberlake wrote most of those songs

Oh, I thought he said it recently. The OP should've added that information.

Well I never heard that and clearly most people didn't either. The video interview I posted was from 12/19/20 (one day before my post) and the Billboard article I posted was 12/20/20 (same day as my post) so... If you had actually looked into it you would have seen that.

I hear you. It's also possible JT wrote them for MJ.

Yup, Pharrell was more clear and revealed more details this time. In 2002 they were very vague in what and how they would reveal such information.
