It has been over 20 years since *NSync released a song as a group. Justin Timberlake, Joey Fatone, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, and Chris Kirkpatrick have reunited for--of all things--the latest, "Trolls," movie, and they've got a new song titled, "Better Place." It is really, really good. For years a reunion seemed unlikely, but nowadays perhaps the breakout star of the group--Timberlake--needs *NSync as a safety net and they're happy to work with him too. The group never truly broke up and they all seemed to still like each other, so why not reunite and do, "Trolls Band Together," for fun (and one would assume a hefty check)? It helps that, "Better Place," hits, and it hits hard. Give it a listen:
Don't get me wrong, "Better Place," is a somewhat vapid pop ditty without any big message or point beyond sounding good and being fun. That's okay, however, because sometimes you just want a tune to be a joyful time! The, "Trolls," movies have always had good covers and some surprisingly great original tunes too so I'm optimistic the 3rd in what has become a trilogy will be enjoyable! Even if for some reason, "Trolls Band Together," isn't a hit at least we got, "Better Place," out of it.
