Gaga’s Little Monsters better be on their A-games, since she’s facing off against ‘N Sync now. Last round, the boy band defeated Rihanna by almost 40% of the votes! Which song should move one step closer to claiming the title of Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era?
Lady Gaga’s already momentous career became even bigger with the release of ‘Bad Romance.’ The crazy-catchy track was accompanied by an equally iconic music video that launched Gaga into superstardom. The song was so big that it scored the singer two Grammys.
‘N Sync also earned commercial acclaim for ‘Bye Bye Bye.’ The lead single off of their sophomore album proved the guys were no flash in the pan. ‘Bye Bye Bye’ was so successful, in fact, that it helped ‘No Strings Attached’ earn top first-week album sales — a record the band still holds today.
