Who else is excited for the *Nsync reunion that is scheduled to happen at this year’s MTV VMAs? We know, we know – everyone. It’s hard not to be when it’s been over a decade since we’ve seen the boys in action together. We love us some Justin Timberlake, but there was just something magical about *Nsync.
To celebrate the imminent reunion of our favorite boy band, PopWrapped has compiled a list of our “Pop 5” favorite music videos from *Nsync. So sit back, relax, and let the nostalgia wash over you.
5. “I Want You Back”
If this video doesn’t bring the nostalgia, you’re doing it wrong. Way back when music videos felt like the way of the future, this video brought it hard. Now, you may be thinking, “wait, I’ve never seen this before!” Actually, this is the original Swedish music video for *Nsync’s debut track. It was released first in Europe, before the group made it big in their home country. This is where it all began, my friends.
I very clearly remember watching the “Making The Video” for this one. You know, I really miss those MTV shows! That’s beside the point, though. “Pop” brought a whole new sound for *Nsync, and fans everywhere ate it up. The video itself seems to take place during a rave that may or may not be happening inside a pinball machine. Sadly, though, this seemed to mark the end of the synchronized dancing that defined *Nsync. Luckily we got that one move where they basically humped the ground. You know exactly what I’m talking about, too!
3. “Thinking Of You (I Drive Myself Crazy)”
Ah, this music video! It’s impossible to forget the boys in their silk pajamas, crooning from within the confines of a mental institution. A lot of artists sing about love driving them crazy, but *Nsync took it literally with this hit.
2. “It’s Gonna Be Me”
Okay, people, I think this is my favorite *Nsync video. You just can’t beat the wholeNo Strings Attached puppet motif, and it’s in full force with this video. I don’t know about you, but I spent a lot of time trying to learn the dance from this video, and I have very minimal shame about that.
1. “Bye Bye Bye”
When you think of iconic moments in the history of boy bands, this is it. This is what secured *Nsync’s place in the history books. There’s always that one moment in an artist’s or group’s career that signifies that, yes, they’re going to be legends, and for *Nsync it was this video. The song never hit #1 onBillboard’s Hot 100, and it didn’t win any Grammys, but it changed the face of pop music for sure. And I’m pretty sure it had a major influence on Christopher Nolan’sInception.
What do you think? Did we include your favorite *Nsync music video?
