Taylor Swift has been instrumental in the revelation of NSYNC’s new song
NSYNC hasn’t completely said “Bye Bye Bye” to making more music together.
Justin Timberlake, Joey Fatone, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, and Chris Kirkpatrick officially reunited to release a new song called “Take You to a Better Place,” which will be featured in the upcoming “Trolls Band Together” movie.
The celebrated ’90s boy band NSYNC’s new song happens to be its first in over two decades.
The song will reportedly drop on September 29 ahead of the film’s cinematic release in November 2023.
The announcement about the new tune came just a day after Justin, JC, Joey, Lance, and Chris graced the stage of the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards to present the Best Pop award to Taylor Swift for “Anti-Hero.”
“I’m not doing well pivoting from this to this like I had your dolls,” Taylor expressed as she ascended the stage to accept her VMA, embracing all five NSYNC members before doing so.
“You’re pop personified. So to receive this from your golden pop hands is really too much,” she added.
The “Eras Tour” performer proceeded to ask about what the group is currently up to, seemingly on behalf of all their fans, herself included.
“Are you doing something? What’s going to happen now?” she said.
NSYNC’s Golden Era
NSYNC sold more than 70 million records—30 million in the US—with a dozen singles making the Top 40, adult contemporary, dance, Latin, country, or R&B charts.
The group is also among the most successful live acts in pop, with the first 52 dates of the “No Strings Attached” world tour selling out in record time.
The band’s first single, “I Want You Back” (1996), became the longest Top 10 entry for a new group, while the self-titled debut album, released in 1997, sold more than 10 million copies.
The next two records, “No Strings Attached” and “Celebrity,” topped the US charts in 2000 and 2001, while other memorable singles include “Bye Bye Bye,” “Girlfriend” and “It’s Gonna Be Me.”
NSYNC went on what they described at the time as a “hiatus” in 2002 but have not performed together since—except for a brief reunion in 2013 when Justin received an award at the MTV Video Music Awards
