*NSync released the fourth and final album of their original run, Celebrity, in 2001. The following year, Timberlake released his solo debut, Justified. Before this week’s reunion, *NSync got back together at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2013 to celebrate Timberlake’s Video Vanguard Award.
Trolls Band Together is the third installment in the Trolls franchise. “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” a song Justin Timberlake wrote for the original 2016 film, ended up debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and won the singer a Grammy.
The second Trolls movie, 2020’s Trolls World Tour, featured more Timberlake originals, including the Anderson .Paak collaboration “Don’t Slack” and the SZA collaboration “The Other Side.”
