‘Back Here’ wasn’t a hit when it was originally released in the UK, but that didn’t stop BBMak casually conquering America in the meantime.
*NSYNC – It’s Gonna Be Me
‘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.

*NSYNC – Tearin’ Up My Heart
It took two attempts, but ‘Tearin’ Up My Heart’ (eventually) became one of *NSYNC’s earliest hits in the UK
*NSYNC – Pop
‘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
*NSYNC – (God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time On You
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.
