The ‘It’s Gonna Be May’ Meme Raised *NSYNC’s Streaming Numbers 176 Percent

Thanks to the annual tradition of people sharing Justin Timberlake’s boyish face across the landscape of social media, coupled with the group’s reunion on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last week, *NSYNC’s streaming numbers have jumped 176 percent in the United States.

On April 28 and 29, Nielsen Music quantified the group’s total streams at 557,000 (dang! *NSYNC still pulls!), but on April 30 and May 1, the number jumped to 1.54 million streams across audio and video.

The most streamed song over that period? Come on. It was “It’s Gonna Be Me.” That song accounted for 1.1 million of those 1.54 million streams. (h/t Billboard)
