Sick of hearing Fall Out Boy’s “Uma Thurman” on seemingly endless repeat at your local gym? (Maybe that’s just me, but I digress.) Behold, the newest FOB single, “Irresistible,” featuring none other than Demi Lovato. The music video for the American Beauty/American Psycho song is an homage to *SYNC’s classic “It’s Gonna Be Me” clip, but it doesn’t just stop there: The video was directed by “It’s Gonna Be Me” director Wayne Isham and features cameos from two-fifths of *NSYNC, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick. (What, you were expecting Justin Timberlake? C’mon, not even Pete Wentz has that pull.) watch the video below, then go catch FOB on tour this spring with AWOLNATION and PVRIS (dates).

If you’re experiencing a smidgen of deja vu, it’s because Fall Out Boy actually released a music video for “Irresistible” already, nearly a year ago. Of course, that version didn’t have Demi Lovato (or *NSYNC) in it, but it did have some nice basketball moves. Watch the original version below.
