Well, who would have dared to hope for that? The former boy band *NSYNC releases a new song! A reunion that Justin Timberlake (42) is particularly happy about: On Instagram he speaks of a “love letter to the fans” and hugs his boys in the studio: “Men, I love you.”
A sample of the song “Better Place” can be heard in the trailer for the third part of the “Trolls” animated film series. The video was posted online by Universal on Thursday (local time). “Trolls – Strong Together” will be released in German cinemas on October 19th. Timberlake and Anna Kendrick lend their voices to the popular troll characters Poppy and Branch.
Timberlake and his *NSYNC colleagues Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and JC Chasez (all over 40) already caused a sensation at the MTV Video Music Awards on Wednesday night. They presented the trophy in the “Pop Song” category to winner Taylor Swift. She was visibly touched and came out as a big fan of the band. However, there was no sample of the old *NSYNC hits such as “I Want You Back”, “Gone” or “Bye, Bye, Bye”. The group disbanded in 2002 and has not recorded any more music until now.
The joy about “Better Place” should be all the greater. However, it is uncertain whether there will be more songs.
