Lance Bass and Joey Fatone: The Explosive Reunion of NSYNC
Lance Bass and Joey Fatone recently sat down to talk about the highly anticipated reunion of the iconic boy band NSYNC. The duo revealed that the reunion was a natural progression after years of discussions among the band members. The spark was reignited when they performed at Coachella and the VMAs 10 years ago, and it just made sense to come together again for their fans.
The VMAs performance left fans feeling “millennial-triggered” as Lance, Joey, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, and Justin Timberlake took the stage to present Taylor Swift with the Best Pop Award. The buzz continued when the group announced the release of their first song in over two decades, titled “Better Place,” which dropped on September 29.
The catalyst for the band’s return to the studio was Justin Timberlake’s upcoming film, Trolls Band Together. Lance explained that the opportunity arose naturally from Justin’s involvement in the movie, and the rest of the band members quickly jumped on board. According to Joey, it was easy to slip back into their old roles, making the experience even more enjoyable.
Since their formation in 1995, NSYNC has made a name for themselves with hit songs like “Tearin’ Up My Heart” and “I Want You Back.” Their second album, “No Strings Attached,” propelled them to stardom with the release of the chart-topping singles “Bye Bye Bye” and “It’s Gonna Be Me.” After their third album, “Celebrity,” the group decided to go their separate ways and pursue solo projects.
Although a tour hasn’t been confirmed yet, many fans are hoping to see NSYNC perform together once again. The group’s announcement of their new single has generated significant social media buzz, and all of their previous albums have re-entered the top 100 on iTunes. Even AJ McLean from the Backstreet Boys is eagerly anticipating a more permanent reunion. He expressed his desire to see NSYNC make new music and perform together on stage.
Contrary to popular rumors, AJ emphasized that there was never any competition between the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC. In fact, there was a sense of camaraderie and mutual support among the two groups. They often worked with the same people, such as manager Lou Pearlman and producer Max Martin, which further strengthened their bond.
Fans have wondered if the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC could join forces for a tour in the future. Joey revealed that they have had conversations about it, and the possibilities are endless. He even mentioned the exciting prospect of a collaboration with Boys II Men and New Kids on the Block for a Super Bowl performance.
Although their music careers are vital, Lance and Joey’s top priority is being fathers. They teamed up with their children to celebrate the upcoming holiday season, featuring in matching PJs from The Children’s Place. For Joey, it was a memorable experience to have all the kids together for a fun photoshoot. Lance expressed how meaningful it was to work with his longtime friends and a household brand like The Children’s Place, especially now that he is a parent.
In conclusion, the reunion of NSYNC has been a long-awaited event for fans around the world. Lance Bass and Joey Fatone, along with the rest of the band members, are excited to be back in the studio and potentially perform together once again. While a tour is uncertain, the possibilities are limitless, and fans can’t help but hope for more music and electrifying performances from this iconic boy band.
