Have you guys check you streaming service today? Yesterday was Thursday the last day of April, and *NSYNC fans knew what that meant: “It’s Gonna Be May!”

In fact, the boy band temporarily changed the title of its hit single “It’s Gonna Be Me” to “It’s Gonna Be May” on streaming services this week in honor of the memes that have sprouted up making fun of Justin Timberlake’s unique pronunciation of the song’s title on the track.

The Verge notes that the 2000 single sees an annual spike in sales and streams right around the end of April and beginning of May, while fellow *NSYNC-er Lance Bass told Good Morning America on Friday, “I mean, who knew it would become a national holiday this many years later?”
