YouTube has pulled the plug on Justin Timberlake's new music video because it is too explicit.

The video for new single Tunnel Vision features women dancing around topless in mist and wearing nude-coloured G-strings.

The Cry Me a River singer warned ahead of the video's release that it was explicit.

"Check out the new video for Tunnel Vision and be ready ... it's explicit. -teamJT," said the message on Twitter. 

The video was directed by Simon McLoughlin, Jeff Nicholas and Jonathan Craven, son of Wes Craven.

Tunnel Vision is the third single to be released from Justin's new album The 20/20 Experience.

A message on YouTube said the video had been removed "as a violation of YouTube's policy on nudity or sexual content".
