15 Love Lessons *NSYNC’s ‘No Strings Attached’ Taught Us

Prepare to feel incredibly old, millennials: No Strings Attached, *NSYNC’s most successful (and best) album, turns 15 today. The band’s sophomore LP is pure bubblegum paradise — infectious, cheesy, and just a little bit angsty. It’s also *NSYNC’s most successful album to date and still holds the record for the most albums sold in a debut week (2.4 million — not even Taylor Swift could top that). Needless to say, No Strings Attached is pretty badass, but we bet you didn’t know the album is the only thing you need to navigate the complicated world of ~*LoVe.

Underneath No Strings Attached’s catchy choruses are some nuggets about relationships that are real as hell. Turns out, the frosted-tip boys who once made hearts flutter are also spot-on love doctors. We revisited No Strings Attached — the greatest album of the teen-pop boom —  and selected the 15 best perils of wisdom from Justin Timberlake and the gang. Cancel your Cosmopolitan subscriptions, people; this gem of an album is all you need.
