NEWARK, NEW JERSEY - SEPTEMBER 12: (L-R) Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez, Justin Timberlake, Lance Bass and Joey Fatone of NSYNC seen backstage during the 2023 Video Music Awards at Prudential Center on September 12, 2023 in Newark, New Jersey.

Justin Timberlake’s reunited with his NSYNC teammates Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, and Joey Fatone to record “Better Place,” the group’s first song in more than 20 years. It’s for the film Trolls Band Together, and they’re calling it “a love letter to fans.”

“Better Place” will be released on September 29th, and Trolls Band Together will hit theaters on November 17th.

The fans who are hoping NSYNC’s reunion for the new song “Better Place,” and their MTV VMA appearance, was just the beginning of a reunion tour should be prepared to be let down.  Billboard has confirmed that there aren’t currently any plans for the guys to hit the road together any time soon.

The reason is that Justin Timberlake plans to hit the road solo in 2024, after releasing a new album. In fact, Justin already has a hold on specific arena dates in North America. This goes along with what JT’s collaborator Timbaland recently told Entertainment Tonight. He said Justin’s new album is coming out “top of next year.”

But if NSYNC ever did decide to do a full-fledged reunion tour, Billboard projects that such a trek could easily gross $95 million in North America alone. Add in merch sales and sponsorships, the publication notes, and they could be looking at as much as $120 million.

As for whether or not NSYNC could reunite as a foursome, without Justin, a source tells Billboard that even though JC, Lance, Joey, and Chris received offers following their appearance at Coachella in 2019, they never seriously considered it. Billboard reports that, “anything short of a five-person comeback is off the table.”

TMZ reported that a couple of the band members say that a full reunion is not something that should be ruled out. JC and Lance said, “anything is possible.”

Hopefully, “Better Place” is enough to satisfy some fans.
