Virgin Records sprang into action when ‘Just A Little While’ leaked ahead of its release. Still, things couldn’t get any worse…right?
‘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…
For her debut solo single, Rachel Stevens came out swinging for Justin Timberlake with a song penned as a response to ‘Cry Me A River’
*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.
By the time Feels So Good was released, Melanie B’s debut album campaign was close to dying of old age having spanned almost three years.
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.
