The iconic teen pop band NSYNCformed by Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick, reunited to record in a studio more than two decades after their last release, Timberlake revealed in a video.
“When the stars align… I got my brothers back in the studio to work on something fun and the energy was special. ‘Better Place’ will be out on September 29. I love you all”Timberlake wrote on Instagram along with the video, in which fragments of the new song can be heard.
In addition to representing the reunion of this group, which has not made music with all its members since 2001 and officially separated in 2007, the song will also be part of the musical repertoire of the third film in the “Trolls” franchise (DreamWorks Animation).
An animated film for children titled “Trolls Band Together”, directed by Walt Dohrn and Tim Heltz, which will hit international theaters on November 17 with Timberlake himself returning to voice the main character of Branch.
Rumors about the return of the iconic ‘boy band’ (teenage band), which captivated young people around the world in the late 90s and early 2000s by selling more than 56 million records, have increased especially in recent days.
Specifically, after the five members attended the MTV Video Music Awards in New Jersey this Tuesday to present the award for best pop video, which went to the work “Anti-Hero” by Taylor Swift.
When the singer of the hit “Love Story” took the stage, she was excited about the award and also about receiving it from NSYNC: “I had her dolls. (…) What is going to happen now? They’re doing something and I need to know what it is. “They are pop personified.” exclaimed Swift.
The return has been confirmed 22 years after “Celebrity”, the last album they released and which gave way to Timberlake’s solo career with his project “Justified”, which earned him a Grammy.
Since then, the band had not collaborated again, although they reunited in 2018 to celebrate their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
