At the moment is April 30th, which suggests within the trendy Gregorian calendar system — and within the immortal, misquoted phrases of NSYNC member Justin Timberlake — it’s gonna be Could tomorrow. And to rejoice the event, NSYNC seems to have taken the additional step of adjusting the title of the band’s hit tune “It’s Gonna Be Me,” from their 2000 album No Strings Hooked up to “It’s Gonna Be Could” throughout streaming companies like Spotify and Apple Music (via Ben Newton on Twitter).
The “It’s Gonna Be Could” meme is an previous one on the web, dating back to 2012, in keeping with a historical past of a phenomenon that Spotify put together last year cataloging a spike in performs each April 30th. The joke stems from Timberlake’s pronunciation of the title of the tune inside the observe, which is well heard as “it’s gonna be Could,” versus “it’s gonna be me.”
Folks throughout the web have celebrated the tune each April 30th since, with members of NSYNC even getting in on the enjoyable on Twitter final 12 months. However this 12 months, evidently the band has taken it upon themselves to one-up the legions of memes by altering the title of the tune itself — at the least quickly — on almost each streaming service and web site.
So relax, put in your favourite 2000s-era jean jacket, and spin up some NSYNC. As a result of it may be April 30th a bit longer, however quickly… it’s gonna be Could.
