TEARIN’ UP MY HEART
Originally intended to be recorded by the Backstreet Boys, Tearin’ Up My Heart turned out to be one of the best singles from NSYNC’s self-titled album. The song debuted on TRL in 1998, and immediately became the most requested video.
THINKING OF YOU (DRIVE MYSELF CRAZY)
Thinking Of You is one of those songs we keep debating about its official title, since the chorus line begins with “drive myself crazy” and that’s what we remember more. The song isn’t one of the top-charting ones upon its release, but we’ll forever love it for its sentimental music video and how it will always remind us of the 90s!
When Pop was first released, we thought it was super cool. It’s new, and very far from the NSYNC songs we’re used to. Both the song and the video incorporated special effects that was very apt for the new millennium. Justin Timberlake was in fact involved in writing the song, and in the video, he showcases his beat boxing talent for the first time.
This was the time when the members were beginning to slowly shed their baggy pants and jacket image. It was another break from their teeny-bopper looks, and this time, they geared towards hip-hop influences. Even the video featured all the right hip-hop elements, from vintage cars to scantily-clad girls. Girlfriend also paved the way for what was to be Justin Timberlake’s successful career as a solo artist.
