Key Highlight

  • NSYNC has come back into the music scene with the song Better Place
  • The single was officially released on a Friday and is featured on the Trolls Band Together

In a much-celebrated reunion, NSYNC has come back into the music scene with Better Place, their long-awaited musical offering after a hiatus spanning nearly two decades. This single, which has generated significant buzz, was officially released on a Friday and is prominently featured on the Trolls Band Together soundtrack.

A journey back to the spotlight

The revival of NSYNC comes after a significant passage of time since Justin Timberlake's departure from the group, with a decade having passed since their last group performance. Speculation regarding NSYNC's return took flight in the lead-up to the VMAs, fueled by reports of the group secretly recording the now-unveiled track, Better Place, as part of the third installment of the Trolls franchise.

The upcoming film centers around the characters Poppy and Branch, portrayed by Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake, respectively, who are depicted as a couple. The storyline takes a twist when Poppy discovers Branch's hidden past as a member of the boy band BroZone, composed of Branch and his four brothers. The trailer for the film even playfully references Timberlake's boy band origins, with a line, "Branch, we’re out of synch. We’ve gone from boys to men, and now there’s only one direction for us to go: The backstreets!"
