Destination Jam: A toast to our top 5 best NSYNC bangers that are sure to take you tripping down memory lane
NSYNC began trending on Twitter recently as fans began feeling nostalgia for their favorite boyband and called for a Verzuz Battle against Backstreet Boys. We couldn't help but remember some of NSYNC's music that we grew up with and we want to celebrate the group with a playlist. Our Destination Jam for today features five of our favorite NSYNC songs. Check out our list below.
'Bye Bye Bye'
You knew this had to be at the top of our list. With a music video currently at over 231 million views on YouTube, this iconic track is worthily deemed a classic by fans. The music video features members Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone and Lance Bass as puppets crooning their fanbase with dance moves that are hard to forget. If you've never heard of NSYNC before, this track displays a fire that many aspiring boybands at the time would follow.
'It's Gonna Be Me'
With Justin Timberlake adding an "ay" accentuation to "babe" and "me" in lyrics such as "You might been hurt, babe. That ain't no lie. You've seen them all come and go, oh. I remember you told me," you knew this group was gonna add musical styles that hadn't seen before. NSYNC was confident, igniting the stage and their music videos — one of the many reasons for their success — and there was a certain edge to their style that won the hearts of millions of female audiences worldwide.
'This I Promise You'
Boy, have Justin Timberlake's vocals changed so much. 'This I Promise You' opens with Justin singing in a huskier tone than his latest music and is backed by a stunning harmony from his NSYNC bandmates. 'This I Promise You' reveals that the heartthrob group also had what it takes to produce amazing slow-burners.
'I'll Never Stop'
Certain boyband groups from the late '90s, early 2000s adopted certain sounds that you could immediately associate with an era. 'I'll Never Stop' gets synth stabs, piano jabs, popping percussive layers, and strings as the group sings, "I will never stop. Until you're mine. I can wait forever, till the end of time. 'Cause my heart is in your hands. Don't you understand? I'll never stop."
'U Drive Me Crazy'
With hit after hit, NSYNC had a few tracks that were worthy of more attention. 'U Drive Me Crazy' is the first single taken from NSYNC's seasonal studio album, 'The Winter Album', as well as on the UK version of their self-titled debut album. The song was a major hit in Spain, earning No. 4 on the AFYVE chart and spent five weeks in the top fifteen, although its U.S. reception wasn't as great. 'U Drive Me Crazy' plays a twangy guitar groove and subtle funky textures while the vocals apply more R&B or soulful tones than many of their well-known tracks. Listen to 'U Drive Me Crazy' here
