(Listen) Justin Timberlake Reunites NSync for First New Song (And More — Super Bowl?) in 20 Years on Coming “Trolls” Soundtrack


NSync is back!

Justin Timberlake has reunited his boy band for their first new recording in roughly 20 years.

The song is called “Better Place” and the full version drops September 29th. Below is a clip. It comes from the new “Trolls” soundtrack– the movie and CD are due in November.

The marketing plan for this began Sunday when NSync appeared on the MTV VMA Awards.

Timberlake has been involved with the “Trolls” movies’ soundtracks since they first began. One of his best and biggest singles ever was “Can’t Stop the Feeling” in 2016. But Justin — after a couple of big hit solo albums — stopped the feeling with his weird album, “Man of the Woods,” in 2018. It was a flop. So this idea of reuniting with NSync is gold. A new album is sure to follow, and then a big tour. It’s a win win for everyone including the rest of the group.

Could NSync be headed to the Super Bowl come February 11, 2024? Most definitely. Jay Z controls halftime. He and Justin are old friends. NSync would be a huge in Las Vegas at the Bowl and bring in substantial ratings no matter which teams make it to the finals.
