Justin Timberlake Teases *NSYNC Is Working on New Music


When *NSYNC returned with “Better Place” for the Trolls Band Together soundtrack in September, it was the first new music fans had heard from the boy band in 20 years – but it probably won’t be the last. 

In his Monday (Jan. 30) appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Justin Timberlake strongly hinted that he and bandmates JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick are cooking up a follow-up to their comeback single. “That was fun,” he began, recalling how the guys reunited for “Better Place.” “It’s kind of crazy — there’s so much that picks up right where it left off as far as chemistry.” 

“We’ve been in the studio,” he continued in the clip. “So there may be a little something in the future.” 

*NSYNC first sparked reunion rumors last year at the VMAs, where the group surprised fans by appearing onstage together to present Taylor Swift with the night’s best pop award. A few weeks later, the quintet dropped “Better Place,” which debuted at No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. 

Then, in November, *NSYNC made its post-reunion red carpet debut at the Trolls premiere in Hollywood. 

While fans wait for the new *NSYNC material to come to fruition, Timberlake is offering up his own solo comeback to enjoy in the meantime. Last week, the Friends With Benefits star dropped a new single, “Selfish,” and announced that his first album in six years, Everything I Thought It Was, will arrive March 15. And during his musical guest appearance on Saturday Night Live Jan. 27, he debuted another new song, “Sanctified.”

As if the ‘90s vibes weren’t strong enough, Britney Spears and Timberlake’s names have once again been making headlines together in the aftermath of the “Toxic” singer’s 2023 memoir. The autobiography didn’t necessarily paint Timberlake – whom Spears dated from 1999 to 2002 – in a particularly flattering light, but earlier this week, the pop star posted on Instagram that she is “so in love with Justin Timberlake’s new song ‘Selfish.’” 

She also offered a blanket apology “for some of the things I wrote about in my book.” “If I offended any of the people I genuinely care about I am deeply sorry,” she added at the time.
