It’s former NSYNC heartthrob Justin Timberlake in his debut single “Like I Love You.”

Did you guess it?

Following stints on Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child, Timberlake rose to fame as a member of NSYNC. The five-piece went on to become one of the best-selling boy bands of all time. Across their four studio albums, the group had numerous top 10 singles including “Bye Bye Bye” and “Tearin’ Up My Heart.”

Timberlake became a two-time Grammy winner thanks to his solo debut, Justified. Two singles from the album, “Cry Me a River” and “Rock Your Body” also saw widespread commercial success.

“Like I Love You” received a Grammy nomination in 2003 for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. The track has been said to stem from Timberlake and The Neptunes listening to an Earth, Wind & Fire record while writing for the album. The producing duo set out to capture the groove of the “funk era” on Timberlake’s debut single.

His follow-up album Future Sex/Love Sounds (2006) was heavily lauded for its diversity in music genres. Upon its debut, it soared to the top of the Billboard 200 charts and spawned consecutive No. 1 singles “Sexy Back,” “My Love,” and “What Goes Around…Comes Around.”

After taking an acting hiatus, Timberlake returned to his music career in 2013 with his third and fourth albums The 20/20 Experience and The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2. Delving into a neo-soul style, The 20/20 Experience became the best-selling album of the year with singles like “Suit & Tie” and “Mirrors.”

His latest studio album, Man of the Woods (2018), became his fourth number-one album in the U.S., featuring two top ten singles–”Filthy” and “Say Something (Featuring Chris Stapleton).
