Justin Timberlake, Fall Out Boy, Destiny’s Child are just three of the artists who are coming back into the music industry in full force. Singers who were on the iTunes’ best seller list just a week ago are now finding themselves upstaged by artists who have not released a hit single since the early 2000s.
Former ‘N Sync member Justin Timberlake has recently come back into the music industry after taking a few years off while working on a multitude of movies. His new hit singles “Mirrors” and “Suit & Tie” have recently earned spots in the top ten iTunes chart surpassing new artists like Fun. and Macklemore. 
“I’ve always been a big fan of Justin Timberlake and I love how he’s coming with a new style that kind of differs from pop music,” Convent of the Sacred Heart sophomore Emily Davenport said. “He’s combining his old school style with current crazes and I think he’ll be really successful with it.”
Post 2005 breakup, Destiny’s Child released a new album, “Love Songs,” consisting of top singles from their former albums. Though not together, Destiny’s Child recently released a hit single for their former fans, “Nuclear.” “Nuclear” earned a spot on the iTunes top ten chart less than a week after being released.
After being idle for four years, Fall Out Boy released a single, “My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light Em Up)” in early February. This is the last song that they will release as a group before they breakup. Fall Out Boy leaves the music world reaching the number one spot on the iTunes top 100 chart for the last time.
“I love seeing old artists make a comeback,” junior Jane Mikus said.”It’s like a long awaited blast from the past.”
