When Jay-Z was ruling the Billboard charts in 1998 –– the year of the multiplatinum album “Vol. 2... Hard Knock Life,” and its hit singles "Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)" and "Can I Get A..." –– a band called ‘N Sync released a self-titled album that rode the popularity of a Disney Channel concert special to join Jay-Z in the Top 10.
Who could have predicted that 15 years later Jay-Z and former’N Sync-er Justin Timberlake would team up for one of the summer’s most popular concert tours.
