Kandi Burruss kicked it back to the '90s recently when she posted a photo of herself in the studio with *NSYNC. The throwback snapshot harks back to a bygone era when the boy band was hard at work on their sophomore album No Strings Attached. Kandi was recruited by the guys to help craft tunes for the release, eventually helping to co-write their deliciously great track "It Makes Me Ill." And, if you think it looked fun to work with the guys just by glancing at the photo, the Real Housewives of Atlanta singer/songwriter confirmed to The Daily Dish that it really was a party.
"I have another picture of the same picture with all of us shooting birds at the camera, but I didn't think that was good for their image at this point so I didn't post that one," Kandi told The Daily Dish. "We were young. We were having fun in the studio. I had wrote the song 'It Makes Me Ill' for them on their No Strings Attached album and She'kspeare was the producer, and we just had a good time. They were super talented. They were really silly in the studio too, so you see Chris [Kirkpatrick] was acting crazy in the picture. It was really fun working with them. I really enjoyed it and I'm glad I had the opportunity. It's so funny to see where we started and where we are now."
But this wasn't the first time Kandi had crossed paths with Justin Timberlake. Long before they logged studio hours together, Kandi met a young JT when he was a Mouseketeer on the '90s iteration of The Mickey Mouse Club. "There's also a video out there somewhere of back when Justin was on The Mickey Mouse Club and my group Xscape was on The Mickey Mouse Club with him and we were doing an interview, so that's a throwback of that time," Kandi explained. "[There's] different time periods where you see us in the same settings. We're not like close or anything, but we've come in contact."
