"This I Promise You" is a ballad by 'N Sync, released as the third single in the United States and the fourth single in Europe from their second studio album, No Strings Attached, in 2000. The song was composed by pop singer Richard Marx, who would later record the song twice, first for the Japanese release of his album Days in Avalon similar to the 'N Sync version, and again as a rock song for the European version of his Stories to Tell album. Marx would later use the Days In Avalon version of This I Promise You for his Now And Forever: The Ballads album as a duet with Asian singer Sabrina. "This I Promise You" was the group's fifth top-ten single in the U.S., reaching number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the autumn of 2000. In addition, the song spent 13 weeks at number one on the Billboard Adult Contemporarychart, the group's first song to do so.[1] The single was less successful internationally, reaching number 21 on the UK Singles Chart and failing to make the top 20 in Australia. This song was also featured on the 2001 compilation album "Now That's What I Call Music! 7 (U.S. Series)"

Music video[edit]Edit

The video, directed by Dave Meyers, shows the group clad in turtlenecks singing in the Redwood National and State Parks, with different shots of different love relationships being shown in bubbles floating around the forest. Footage of theSan Francisco skyline appears at different intervals and at the key change, the video switches to the group sitting at a table at an outdoor eatery along the Embarcadero, with little girls blowing bubbles around. The video debuted on TRLOctober 27, 2000. MadTV spoofed the video on December 16, 2000, with "This We Promise You", poking fun at the group's clean-cut image.
