Justin Timberlake’s "Tunnel Vision," his latest single, features topless, beautiful women dancing in clouds of smoke with the artist's face superimposed onto their bodies. Shortly after it was uploaded to YouTube, the video was removed for violating the website’s nudity policy, the New York Daily News reported.

Justin Timberlake warned his Twitter followers of explicit content on "Tunnel Vision."

In the 7-minute video, viewers see blond and brunette models stretch and pose before black and white screens while clouds of smoke engulf their bodies. An image of Timberlake dancing is projected on the women and on the white screens behind them.

The 32-year-old singer and actor is taking a cue from singer Robin Thicke, who in March released a similarly risqué video that showcased scantily-clad, topless women dancing in his video "Blurred Lines."

Like Timberlake's "Tunnel Vision," "Blurred Lines" was removed from YouTube for the same reason. A less graphic version was reposted to the video sharing website shortly after.

As of Friday morning, Thicke's "Blurred Lines" has more than 77.5 million views.

"Tunnel Vision" is the third single on Timberlake's recently released album, "The 20/20 Experience," which has sold 2 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album is the year's best-selling album at its halfway point, Billboard.com reported.

The Memphis, Tenn.- born entertainer appeared on "The New Mickey Mouse Club" as a child and became a household name in the 1990s as one of the lead singers in the boy band 'N Sync.

Having taken a hiatus from music for several years to focus on his acting career, Timberlake announced his return to music with "The 20/20 Experience" this past January.
