N Sync : Pop

Speeded up R&B with bouncy basslines and sound effects..

Though in the States this single is bizarrely being held up as an example of what they’re all calling ‘two-step’, it is, of course, slightly speeded up R&B with bouncy basslines and sound effects; state of the art pop, in other words. So why the defensive lyrics? Well, despite Justin Timberlake squiring Britney Spears, boasting Beyoncé as a past conquest and having the voice of a boyband Kurt Cobain, we guess he [I]just can’t forgive[/I] that scene in the ‘Real Slim Shady’ video where Eminem sits on his face. Ignore him, mate. You rule.
