"(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time on You" is the third single released from NSYNC's self-titled debut album in the U.S. While some of the previous singles were released in Europe, this one was not, and subsequently only charted in Australia and the U.S., reaching number 46 and number 8 respectively. The single included a live version of Christopher Cross song "Sailing", as well as a limited edition postcard. Some versions of the single included the track's video. The radio version of this song was featured on both their first and third compilation albums: Greatest Hits (2005) and The Essential *NSYNC (2014).
It was the first song by the group to enter the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100.
The video was directed by Lionel C. Martin. The video shows the band performing around one single mike, while showing footage of a mother and child, from birthright up to old age, including childhood memories, going to war, and coming home. All the footage of the mother and child is in black and white, whereas most of the footage of NSYNC is in full color.

In 1999, country music band Alabama recorded the song with a backing vocal from NSYNC, and released it as a single from their eighteenth studio album, Twentieth Century. This version peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and at number 29 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was the only Hot Country Songs chart entry for NSYNC. The song was later included as the B-side to Alabama's next single, "Small Stuff."
