The '90s are coming back in a big way, and we're not just talking about the Netflix sequel to Full House. An iconic boy band of the '90s is having a mini-reunion, and it could mean even more music from the band that hung up their hats in 2002. Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone, two members of *NSYNC, are writing a song together, and if you're freaking out, it's totally fine — we all are. The total "blast from the past" news comes from Kirkpatrick and Fatone themselves, who took to Twitter to spill about their new project, though, unfortunately, they declined to share any more details.
The boy banders last performed on stage together with the rest of the *NSYNC tribe at the 2013 Video Music Awards (much to the delight of now-adult fans everywhere), but now it seems that these two are working on a project sans band. Either way, half of *NSYNC is better than no *NSYNC at all, right? Since the band went on (indefinite) hiatus in 2002, Kirkpatrick appeared on the second season of the singing competition Gone Country, as well as in a number of music videos. He also provided the voice of pop star Chip Skylark on The Fairly Odd Parents, much to the thrill of fans who grew up with his smooth vocals. Meanwhile, Fatone went the live performance route, and starred in Broadway's Rent and Little Shop Of Horrors. Like so many former pop stars, Fatone scored a slot on Dancing With The Stars, dancing his way all the way to second place in the competition.
Of course, no matter what accomplishments these guys achieve, *NSYNC fans will forever see them as part of their original boy band squad — and, with their new project, it looks like Kirkpatrick and Fatone take that just as seriously:
Only time will tell what these guys are really doing in the studio, but fingers crossed we get a new album that will be as life-changing as NSYNC's No Strings Attached. We've waited forever and we deserve this.
