    Very cool that he included JC on the song. With the phenom of Justin post-Nsync, it’s as if many have forgotten that JC was a great singer and a big part of the success of Nsync. I think his voice works beautifully on this song along with two other current talents and the legend that is Smokey.

    so glad to hear JC singing again. he always had the best/strongest voice in NSYNC, hands down. and his voice is still amazing

    Jc has incredibly range, he could have sang the other 2 parts by Miguel and Aloe just as easily with Smokey. I think the only reason Jc did this was because it was a collaboration. Sadly I think he has been so shafted by record companies as a solo artist and during the last years of Nsync the trust is gone. I still have hope that he will connect with some people that he trusts and give us back that great voice.

    Haters gonna hate though because he just keeps going with that smile of his. I have never heard one bad thing about him.

    JC is SO insanely talented! It is AMAZING to hear that flawless voice on a track again. I have been following his career for over 16 years and am constantly blown away by his talent. I hope he keeps singing!

    I have been waiting for this to be released ever since I read that JC was part of the collaboration on this song. I must have listened to the preview on iTunes a hundred times. I just wanna repeat what everyone has already commented before me. JC’s voice is flawless and blends so seamlessly with Aloe Blacc & Miguel. I wish he had gotten a little more ‘solo’ lines.

    I am just waiting for the day when JC puts out new solo stuff. He can sing circles around the talent on the radio today. There is no comparison. The man is straight up talented. It seems he’s cool with being on these collabs. I read he is singing on an 3OH!3 track. I will listen to any music that he puts his voice too.

    If he puts out a single/album, we’ll be there to purchase/download it and share the crap out of it!

    JC tem uma coisa inexplicavel em relação a emoção que coloca nas músicas, sem dúvidas o melhor cantor de todas as boybands, acorda
    JC!! a música precisa de você, muitos cantores pop da mídia não possuem a metade de seu talento, acorde e volte a gravar!!!!

    Emerson lopes Says:

    remember when JC did a duet with a group called blaque a long time ago? I had no idea that it was JC cause he sounded like a brotha… anyway that’s the first time I realized how amazing his voice really was… I’m glad to hear more of him… and I hope NSYNC does another album years later with all their maturity and experiences… I’m sure that album would be their best. I miss them… and I’m a guy saying this.
