"It's Gonna Be Me" is a song by 'N Sync, released as the second single from their 2000 album "No Strings Attached". The lyrics are addressed to a woman with apparent attachment issues, connected with bad experiences from previous relationships. The singer assures her that "I'm not like them", and that he's prepared to wait for her to overcome her problems. When she is ready to love someone again, he maintains, "It's gonna be me".

The song was the only Billboard Hot 100 number-one hit for 'N Sync. It topped the chart for 2 straight weeks.

It has been certified Gold by the RIAA.

Music video

Released in mid-2000 on MTV's "Making the Video", the music video for the song begins in a large toy store, with "Bye Bye Bye" playing in the background. Each group member is an animated plastic doll version of himself in a box similar to their album cover. They punch through the plastic front of their boxes and try to attract the attention of the girl shopping (Kim Smith) so they can be bought. Army men swing down, invade their boxes, and laugh at them when they are bought.

Next, the boys spot a set of Barbie-like dolls and go hang out with them. The Barbies drop a net on them, and again tease them when they are bought and 'N Sync is not.

Finally, the group gets back to their shelf and does a dance for the shopping girl. She buys them, and upon scanning, each doll becomes the real-life version.

All of this is interspersed with the band in a color-lit room singing and dancing with the lights changing colors.

Kim Smith also appears as the puppeteer in "Bye Bye Bye."

After the success of the video, dolls like those portrayed by the band were created. They also had strings attached as a reference to the groups smash hit video "Bye Bye Bye".
