Justin Timberlake recently sparked excitement by suggesting that he and his fellow *NSYNC bandmates were collaborating on new music. However, it turns out the group hasn’t released any fresh tracks. Instead, they contributed their vocals to Justin’s upcoming album. Despite fans’ hopes for new music and a tour following their recent reunion, Justin’s comments on “The Kelly Clarkson Show“ might have caused some mixed expectations.
Insiders at RCA Records revealed that Justin Timberlake’s recent hint about *NSYNC working on new music actually pertains to the band members contributing background vocals for his upcoming album, “Everything I Thought I Was.” The collaboration took place when Justin, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, JC Chasez, and Chris Kirkpatrick gathered last year to record “Better Place” for ‘Trolls Band Together.’
RCA Records executives emphasize that if *NSYNC were to stage a comeback, it must showcase the band’s distinctive sound, incorporating JC singing half the leads alongside JT, mirroring the successful formula of their previous hits. Despite the clamor from fans for an *NSYNC reunion album and tour, there are currently no plans for Justin’s former bandmates to join him on stage during his upcoming world tour.
Although the prospect of an *NSYNC reunion could be considered in the future, RCA is currently focused on addressing concerns about Justin’s first single, “Selfish,” which hasn’t gained the expected traction. Fans expressing disappointment at not getting a genuine *NSYNC song may be a contributing factor to the single’s underperformance. The desire for an authentic *NSYNC experience remains high among fans, potentially influencing decisions in the future.
