Sorry for not posting in a few days, I had some stuff to do, I guess. I got a kick ass new flat screen monitor!! The better to see music videos with...Anyway, I didn't think I was going to be able, but since I finished by class assignments quicker than I thought I would, back to the pop!!
2000 was even bigger. *NSYNC surged past the Backstreet Boys to become the most successful boy band of the year. Their album sold 2.4 million copies in one week, and with the state of today's record industry, that record will probably never be broken. While they were extremely huge in the United States, they never reached the same heights overseas. The success they had was largely based on the smash hit single "Bye Bye Bye". While produced by the Cherion team, Max Martin actually did not have a direct involvement in that song, which was written by Rami. However, he did co-write and -produce the second single, "It's Gonna Be Me", which was, believe it or not, *NSYNC's only #1 single. It's a great song that had a slew of remixes. My favorite was done by Maurice Joshua, who is best known for remixing almost every Destiny's Child/Beyonce song in existence. It was the b-side to the American single, and I love the uplifting breakdown.
