Justin Randall Timberlake (born January 31, 1981), occasionally known by his initials JT, is an American singer, songwriter, actor, dancer, and record producer.
Raised in Tennessee, he appeared on the television shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child. In the late 1990s, Timberlake rose to prominence as one of the two lead vocalists and youngest member of NSYNC, which eventually became one of the best-selling boy bands of all time.
Timberlake began to adopt a more mature image as an artist with the release of his debut solo album, the R&B-focused Justified (2002), which yielded the successful singles "Cry Me a River" and "Rock Your Body", and earned his first two Grammy Awards.
me — oh, and *NSYNC!*NSYNC fans are a little put off by Justin Timberlake seemingly giving himself his own feature on the boy band’s first new song in over 21 years, “Better Place.” Performers on the track, which was released Friday and is included on the upcoming “Trolls Band Together” movie soundtrack, are listed as “*NSYNC and Timberlake” on some platforms — even though *NSYNC consists of Timberlake, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, and Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick.“NSYNC ft Justin Timberlake!??
I think the f–k not,” one fan wrote Friday on X, the platform previously known as Twitter. “I’ve loved Nsync since childhood, and Justin was always my guy, but seeing the song say “N*Sync & Justin Timberlake” is like wtf?” another added. “Imagine ‘Destineys Child & Beyoncé.’ Sorry dude that is such a bad look.”“Why does #BetterPlace have *NSYNC and Justin Timberlake… is he not part of *NSYNC,” a third asked.Another disappointed fan wrote, “With it being *NSYNC featuring Justin Timberlake, I smell an ego trip holding them back from getting back together/touring/recording..
JMO.” “Why is it NSync and Justin Timberlake? Isnt he NSync? Confused much,” another skeptic wrote.Although fans may be peeved by the Spotify, Amazon Music and Apple Music listings, the track listing on the release just says *NSYNC.The Post has contacted reps for Timberlake for comment.
Timberlake co-wrote “Better Place” with Amy Allen and Shellback. He and the latter also produced the song, just like Timberlake’s 2016 “Trolls” hit “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”*NSYNC, which was formed in 1995, has sold over 70 million records worldwide.Read more on nypost.com
