Earlier this year, Justin Timberlake said *NSYNC would regroup and make a new album in 2004. However, he recently told Launch media that any reunion will have to wait until bandmate JC Chasez releases his own solo album. “I think we were anticipating JC’s solo record coming out a little bit earlier,” Timberlake said. “But I think he’s planning on releasing it some time around March. You know, I’ve heard a couple of tracks, and I think they’re great records, so I want him to have every opportunity that I had to kind of do his own thing and explore those possibilities.”
