*NSYNC

(Redirected from NSYNC)

*NSYNC is a five-part pop music vocal group, specifically a boy band, formed in Orlando, Florida, USA. The group members are James Lance Bass, Joshua Scott Chasez (JC), Joseph Anthony Fatone Junior (Joey), Christopher Alan Kirkpatrick (Chris), and Justin Randall Timberlake.


History

The group formed in 1995 under the funding of Lou Pearlman, who hired Johnny Wright (former manager of New Kids On The Block ) to be their tour manager. Lance Bass, who coincidentally sang bass, was not originally part of the group. The bass part was sung by Jason Watkins, who left the group early on because he did not like the type of music *NSYNC was performing.

The logic behind the name *NSYNC came from Justin's mother, Lynn Harless. It was created from the last letter of each member's name: Justin, Chris, Joey, Jason, and JC. After Lance joined, the group claimed to call him "Lansten" so his name would fit in the *NSYNC acronym.

Shortly after their breakthrough, *NSYNC fought a court battle against their manager citing mismanagement. *NSYNC left Pearlman to be managed by Johnny Wright of Wright Entertainment Group. Their defining album, No Strings Attached, released shortly thereafter, proved that the boys were back in business.

The group produces a blend of pop, dance, and R&B that they call "dirty pop". No Strings Attached was the first album to feature this type of music; they gave the style a name with their latest album Celebrity.

Their debut album, released by BMG, did well in Europe and the US as did the seasonal Home For Christmas. After moving from BMG to Jive Records, home of rival boy band Backstreet Boys, No Strings Attached, released in March 2000, sold 2.4 million copies in its first week of release—the highest record sales in music history (1.1 million of which was attributed to the first day of release).

Their fourth album, Celebrity comes in at number two, with 1.8 million records sold in its first week. Their albums have been boosted by a number of successful single releases, including "Tearin' Up My Heart" from *NSYNC, "Music Of My Heart" recorded with Gloria Estefan for the movie Music of the Heart, "Bye Bye Bye", "It's Gonna Be Me" and "This I Promise You" from No Strings Attached. Recent hits such as "Gone" and "Girlfriend" have expanded the group's influence and fan base into the hip-hop crowd as well.

The group went on hiatus in 2002, as two of its members released solo albums -- Justin Timberlake released Justified on November 4, 2002 and JC Chasez released his solo album, Schizophrenic, on February 24, 2004.

Chris closed his clothing business, Fuman Skeeto. Lance abandoned his plans to be the first celebrity in space. Joey is acting in movies (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and on Broadway (Rent).

Plans to work on their fifth album are being discussed, however details are uncertain. Rumors have circulated that Justin Timberlake quit the group, thus, disbanding NSYNC.

Rumors have circulated that Justin Timberlake quit the group, thus, disbanding NSYNC. Chart positions are for the UK, they did not chart in the US. Plans to work on their fifth album are being discussed, however details are uncertain. Chart positions are for the UK, they did not chart in the US. Joey is acting in movies (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and on Broadway (Rent). Robert Schultzberg was also a member of the band between 1994 and 1997. Lance abandoned his plans to be the first celebrity in space. As of 2004, the band consisted of.

Chris closed his clothing business, Fuman Skeeto. The band gained some measure of notoriety for the sexualities of its members (Molko is bisexual, Olsdal is gay, and Hewitt is straight) and their excessive lifestyles, often chronicled in their songs (the title of the track Special K from Black Market Music, for instance, is a reference to the drug ketamine). The group went on hiatus in 2002, as two of its members released solo albums -- Justin Timberlake released Justified on November 4, 2002 and JC Chasez released his solo album, Schizophrenic, on February 24, 2004. Sleeping With Ghosts (2003) was more adventurous, experimenting with dance influences and a less polished guitar sound, though keeping the traditional sound for several songs, including the first single The Bitter End. Recent hits such as "Gone" and "Girlfriend" have expanded the group's influence and fan base into the hip-hop crowd as well. The band's glam connections continued in 1998 when it recorded a version of "20th Century Boy" by T. Rex for the Velvet Goldmine soundtrack. Their albums have been boosted by a number of successful single releases, including "Tearin' Up My Heart" from *NSYNC, "Music Of My Heart" recorded with Gloria Estefan for the movie Music of the Heart, "Bye Bye Bye", "It's Gonna Be Me" and "This I Promise You" from No Strings Attached. The band was asked to play at David Bowie's fiftieth birthday party at Madison Square Garden.

Their fourth album, Celebrity comes in at number two, with 1.8 million records sold in its first week. Their style altered little from Placebo through Black Market Music (2000), based around fairly straightforward guitar playing, often influenced by the style of 1970s British and American rock, and Molko's high-pitched, nasal vocals. After moving from BMG to Jive Records, home of rival boy band Backstreet Boys, No Strings Attached, released in March 2000, sold 2.4 million copies in its first week of release—the highest record sales in music history (1.1 million of which was attributed to the first day of release). However, the band retained a huge popular and critical following in continental Europe. Their debut album, released by BMG, did well in Europe and the US as did the seasonal Home For Christmas. Since Without You I'm Nothing the band have fallen out of fashion particularly with the British music press, who regularly mock the personality and pretensions of its lead member, Brian Molko. No Strings Attached was the first album to feature this type of music; they gave the style a name with their latest album Celebrity. The singles Nancy Boy, from Placebo (1995), and Pure Morning, from Without You I'm Nothing (1998), were the peak of their British success, both charting in the top ten.

The group produces a blend of pop, dance, and R&B that they call "dirty pop". As the other band members were having difficulty getting on with Robert Schultzberg, they persuaded Hewitt to rejoin the band in 1997. Their defining album, No Strings Attached, released shortly thereafter, proved that the boys were back in business. This said, the band offically say that "family commitments" was the reason for his absence. *NSYNC left Pearlman to be managed by Johnny Wright of Wright Entertainment Group. While Hewitt was the preferred choice, he also had other commitments as drummer for London band "Breed", leading to Schultzberg being the drummer when the band signed its contract with Caroline Records. Shortly after their breakthrough, *NSYNC fought a court battle against their manager citing mismanagement. The band could not decide on a drummer at first with Steve Hewitt and Robert Schultzberg alternating on the spot.

After Lance joined, the group claimed to call him "Lansten" so his name would fit in the *NSYNC acronym. While briefly known as Ashtray Heart, the band quickly settled on the name Placebo. It was created from the last letter of each member's name: Justin, Chris, Joey, Jason, and JC. Placebo was founded when former Luxembourg schoolmates Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal met by accident at South Kensington tube station in 1994 and decided to form a band. The logic behind the name *NSYNC came from Justin's mother, Lynn Harless. They enjoyed early success in Britain thanks to the high interest in British rock music at the time, sparked in particular by Oasis and Blur. The bass part was sung by Jason Watkins, who left the group early on because he did not like the type of music *NSYNC was performing. Placebo is a rock band founded in 1994.
