In a hilarious blooper real, the pop star and his recently reunited bandmates — JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick — promote their new track, “Better Place,” from Trolls Band Together. “You’re listening to our new song,” Fatone tells the camera of the tune, which dropped Friday (Sept. 29).
Then, right on cue, Timberlake jokingly adds, “Let us know if you like it. If you don’t, go f–k yourself,” earning raucous laughter from the rest of the guys.
“l heard ‘go love yourself’…anyone else?” Chasez responded in the comments with a laughing-crying emoji.
“BETTER PLACE IS OUT! WE HOPE YOU LIKE IT,” the “Mirrors” singer captioned the video posted on his Instagram.
As of late, *NSYNC has been making fans feel like it’s 1997 again with a series of group appearances promoting “Better Place.” Last week, the quintet guested on Hot Ones, which found the bandmates sending F-bombs flying in response to the painful heat of spicy chicken wings.
Between bites, Timberlake said of “Better Place”: “For our fans that have been with us for so long, [we wanted] to give them something that felt not necessarily nostalgic, but familiar.”
And earlier this month, the boy band re-assembled for the 2023 VMAs, where they presented Taylor Swift with the best pop award for her “Anti-Hero” music video. Swift, like many ’90s kids around the world, was ecstatic.
“I had your dolls!” she exclaimed as she accepted the award from them. “You’re pop personified, so to receive this from your golden pop hands is really too much!”
