April is almost over, which means ‘It’s Gonna Be May.’ Why the meme became so popular

It’s almost May, which means one thing: You are likely going to see a lot of pictures of Justin Timberlake.

As April ticks away, just as the flowers bloom and the temperatures warm, the face of the pop singer increasingly populates our social media feeds through GIFs and images accompanied by four words: “It’s Gonna Be May.”

The springtime meme has been around for years and has even morphed into other forms. But how exactly did it get started? Here’s what you should know about the “It’s Gonna Be May” meme:

What is the meme about?

It originates from the music video for Timberlake’s former group, NSYNC, called “It’s Gonna Be Me.” Timberlake’s singing is notable here because of the way he pronounces “me” in the song, which sounds like “May.”

In some cases, fans of the meme will share it as a GIF direct from the music video, or using images of Timberlake from his NSYNC days with the caption “It’s Gonna Be May.”

Raiders take the fifth Alabama player drafted in the first round.

The Las Vegas Raiders, eager to replenish their offensive line, took Alex Leatherwood of Alabama at No. 17. Last year, Leatherwood (6-foot-5, 312 pounds) won the Outland Trophy, given to the best interior lineman in college football, after allowing just five sacks in 1,400 pass-block snaps. Yet the pick was something of a surprise, because higher-rated linemen were still available.

The Raiders lost Trent Brown, Gabe Jackson and Rodney Hudson this off-season, so they were looking for a lineman to help protect quarterback Derek Carr. The Raiders had the 10th best offense in the league last year.
