Hear NSYNC reunite for the first time in 20 years on new song 'Better Place'

I don't care if the world spins faster, the music's louder, or the waves get stronger — NSYNC is back!

On Friday, Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, and Justin Timberlake reunited to release their first single in over two decades, titled "Better Place," as part of the soundtrack for the upcoming animated film Trolls Band Together. And, well, the world is truly a better place for it.

Announced earlier this month, "Better Place" is a smooth pop track that flaunts NSYNC's ever-solid vocal harmonies as the band members wax lyrical about the rush of falling in love. "Just let me take you to a better place / I'm gonna make you kiss the sky tonight," they sing. "Yeah, if you let me show the way / I'm so excited to see you excited."

While you won't see them dancing in the track's music video, NSYNC recently blew the minds of every Millennial  — including Taylor Swift — when they took the stage together to present at the MTV Video Music Awards.

"Are you doing something? What's gonna happen now? They're gonna do something and I need to know what it is," Swift exclaimed after accepting the Best Pop award from them at the event. "You guys are pop personified so to receive this from your golden pop hands is really, it's too much."

Taking a page from real life, the third Trolls installment sees Anna Kendrick's Poppy discover a surprising secret about her boyfriend Branch (Timberlake): he was a member of the enormously popular boy band BroZone. Thus begins an epic quest to reunite Branch with his fellow members — voiced by Troye Sivan, Eric André, Daveed Diggs, and Kid Cudi — once again.

In addition to lending his voice on "Better Place," Timberlake also serves as one of the executive music producers on the film's soundtrack. He also helped write and compose several tracks on the album, which features songs performed by Andrew Rannells, Zooey Deschanel, Camila Cabello, and more.
