"Tearin' Up My Heart" is a song by American boy band NSYNC. It was released as the second single from their self-titled debut album. It is the second single worldwide. In 2007, VH1 listed the song as the 30th greatest song of the 1990s; in 2009, on America's Best Dance Crew, it was given to the Massive Monkees on the VMA Challenge. The song is featured on their compilation album Greatest Hits, released in 2005. The song was originally pitched to the Backstreet Boys but was eventually given to *NSYNC to record. 
Upon being selected as the next single in December 1996, the video was shot and directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky from January 12–15, 1997 at Old Warehouse 34 in Miami, Florida. It features NSYNC dancing, goofing off, and participating in a photo shoot. Originally, a girl was supposed to be in the bed with Justin Timberlake in his solo shots, but this idea was nixed, as Timberlake was only 15 at the time. (He can be seen barefoot in the bed by himself.) The dance routine shown in the video is essentially the same as the one used for concert or TV performances. It was released internationally in February 1997. The video later debuted in the United States on TRL on September 14, 1998. Within two days it would be the No. 1 most requested video, a position it held for 26 days between September and November.
