*NSYNC Releases New Song ‘Better Place’ After Over 20 Years!

Following their surprising reunion at the 2023 MTV VMAs in September, *NSYNC officially dropped their first song, Better Place, after over 20 years! 

Released on September 29, the dancy pop song is part of the upcoming animated film Trolls Band Together, in which Justin Timberlake voices the character Branch. 

Although this reunion song has been previously announced, fans can’t help but feel ecstatic and nostalgic, knowing this is the first-ever song that Timberlake, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass, and Chris Kirkpatrick worked on together in over two decades.

Prior to the song’s release, Timberlake uploaded a throwback video clip of *NSYNC with the caption, “Our first song together in 23 years comes out TOMORROW.”
