Going back almost a decade, NSYNC’s song “It’s Gonna Be Me” turned into a viral meme that comes back each spring. The group’s lead singer, Justin Timberlake’s pronunciation sounds like “It’s Gonna Be May” and the riffs on the joke have continued to flow over the years. Now NSYNC has updated the official title on Apple Music and Spotify to celebrate the meme.
The update is a fun way to show that Timberlake and company get a kick out of “It’s Gonna Be May” day. One of the earliest examples of the meme popped up in 2012, that’s 12 years after the “No Strings Attached” album was released.
