Justin Timberlake Bio

Timberlake and JC Chasez were the two lead singers of the popular 1990s boy band ‘N Sync.  The group formed in 1995, started its career 1996 in Europe, and hit it big in the United States in 1998 with the US release of its debut album *NSYNC, which sold 11 million copies. The album included a number of hit singles such as “Tearin’ Up My Heart”. For the next two years, encouraged by similar developments with the Backstreet Boys, ‘N Sync engaged in a lengthy legal battle with manager Lou Pearlman. Eventually the band signed with Jive Records. ‘N Sync released a long-awaited album, No Strings Attached, in March 2000, which became the fastest-selling album of all time with 2.4 million copies sold in its first week and produced a #1 single, “It’s Gonna Be Me”. The release was followed by the band’s third album, Celebrity, which held the title of the second-fastest selling album of all time. In 2002, after the completion of a Celebrity Tour and the release of “Girlfriend”, the third single from Celebrity, the group decided to take time off, at which point Timberlake began work on his first solo album and the group went into a hiatus. In its lifetime, ‘N Sync was internationally famous and performed at the Academy Awards, the Olympics, and the Super Bowl,[14] as well as selling more than 50 million copies worldwide, becoming the third-best selling boy band in history.
