ROLLING STONE: Justin Timberlake Confirms New ‘NSync Single on ‘Everything I Thought It Was’ Track List

‘NSync fans might want to sit down for this one. After teasing a possible collaboration on TikTok last week, Justin Timberlake has confirmed that he has linked up with his former bandmates on a new track for his upcoming album Everything I Thought It Was. The new track is called “Paradise” and is the second to last song on the album.

In the cheeky TikTok video, a fan asked him to blink twice to confirm if ‘NSync is on a song called “Paradise,” and Timberlake pulled his sunglasses down to oblige.

“Paradise” marks the band’s second single that they’ve teamed up on recently, following “Better Place” from Trolls Band Together soundtrack — their first in more than two decades.

The band — Chris Kirkpatrick, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, Timberlake, and J.C. Chasez — reunited at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards to present the first award of the night, Best Pop, to Taylor Swift. It was the first time they had all appeared together publicly since they earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2018.

Timberlake’s sixth studio album arrives on March 15 via RCA. It’s his first since 2018’s Man of the Woods. So far, the singer has shared two singles, “Selfish” and “Drown.” Beyond the ‘NSync collab, the 18-track set includes “Liar” featuring Fireboy DML and Tobe Nwigwe on “Sanctified.” The track list was revealed via Spotify, which is also hosting a countdown to the album’s release and where the album can be pre-saved.

The singer also embarks on his Forget Tomorrow World Tour this spring, which kicks off April 29 in Vancouver, Canada.

Gearing up to drop his new album, Everything I Thought It Was, on March 15, Justin Timberlake is using his time (very wisely in our opinion) to pretty much confirm *NSYNC will make an appearance on the tracklist.

Here’s the series of events that led the Internet to freak out about a boy band reunion on the album.

Between JT taking to TikTok to show off the contents of the deluxe vinyls, and posting a video montage of the “MAKING OF THE EITIW VINYLS,” on IG, eagle-eyed fans noticed that the tracklist on the back of the sleeve, which seemed to show that the a track called “Paradise,” will feature Timberlake’s former boy band, *NSYNC.

After the internet did its thing, Timberlake took to TikTok once more to reply to a follower who commented “Blink twice if *NSYNC is on a song called Paradise.” For his response, JT remained silent, stared straight into our souls, dropped down his sunglasses and very deliberately blinked twice, confirming the news.

In response, the “Mirrors” singer dropped down his sunglasses and very deliberately blinked twice, confirming the news.To make it even more obvious, fellow *NSYNC member Chris Kirkpatrick commented on the post with two more eyes emojis.

ET Canada: Lance Bass Says There Were Many ‘Tears’ When *NSYNC Reunited

The NSYNC singer and pop star spoke with ET at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Friday.

After coming together once again at the 2023 MTV VMAs, Lance Bass is still in awe of how special it felt to reunite with his *NSYNC bandmates on stage, to the massive cheer of the crowd.

Bass walked the red carpet on night one of this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival on Friday, and he spoke with ET’s Cassie DiLaura about the unforgettable experience of joining together at the VMAs.

“It is beautiful, you know? To be this age and the fans are still this excited, it is a dream come true,” Bass shared with a smile. “I had no idea the fandom would go this nuts.”

“I blame Taylor Swift,” he added with a laugh, in reference to how the group’s reunion culminated in presenting a star-struck Swift with the award for Best Pop Video. “I think she she sicced the Swifties on us and I think the Swifties and the *NSYNCers just kind of created this tsunami. And I think it’s been so fun!”

Bass was joined on stage by bandmates JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Justin Timberlake and Chris Kirkpatrick when they handed Swift her award, and the celebrated songstress couldn’t contain her excitement as being near the pop icons.

“I’m not doing well pivoting from this to this,” Swift said of her award, telling the group. “I have your dolls! You’re pop personified, so to receive this from your golden pop hands is really too much”

And the singer spoke for *NSYNC fans everywhere when she speculated what the reunion might mean for the group’s future: “They’re gonna do something and I need to know what it is!”

Although, despite the public outcry, Bass says there’s no definitive plans for a reunion tour or special as of now.

“I’ve been telling the fans, like, we don’t have solid plans right now. Because, you know, we’re waiting for the strike to end we’ve got things to do,” Bass said. “But [the fans are] definitely shaping our future.”

That being said, the group did recently record their first original song in over 20 years, “Better Place,” for the upcoming soundtrack for the upcoming animated film “Trolls Band Together” — the third film in the “Trolls” franchise, which featured the voice acting talents of Timberlake himself.

Earlier this month, Timberlake took to Instagram and gave his followers a behind-the-scenes look at the studio session in which they laid down the track.

“It was pretty emotional, the first time we all got in the studio together,” Bass recalled of the recording session. “Back in March, we decided to you know, get back together and have some fun and it was like no [time] had passed.”

“But there was there was a lot of tears. It was just tears of joy. And it was just a beautiful moment,” he continued. “Like, time does so much and for us to finally be together, it just feels right.”

Fans will get a chance to listen to the group’s song when it drops on Sept. 29, well ahead of the release of “Trolls Band Together” on Nov. 17. Check out the video below to hear more about the band’s recent reunion.
