‘It’s Gonna Be Me’ siphoned the essence of *NSYNC’s ‘No Strings Attached album’ down into an immense three-and-a-half-minute pop package.
It was never released in the UK, but the tortuous ‘Thinking Of You (I Drive Myself Crazy)’ is up there as one *NSYNC’s very best efforts.
It took two attempts, but ‘Tearin’ Up My Heart’ (eventually) became one of *NSYNC’s earliest hits in the UK
‘Pop’ was *NSYNC’s opportunity to hit back at the critics. But their bold new sound spelt the end for pop music as we knew it…
*NSYNC curiously chose to consolidate their comeback in Europe with ‘I’ll Never Stop’, a region-exclusive single penned by the ever-reliable Max Martin
Driven by events behind the scenes, ‘Bye Bye Bye’ defiantly positioned *NSYNC as survivors – faultlessly relaunching them an A-list pop act.
There’s nothing remotely subtle about any aspect of the single – but it was the ‘90s and subtlety was not a concept that pop acts were required to grasp.
