The ’90s called…but they can’t have the Backstreet Boys back, alright? With new music, fresh dance moves and several live concerts lined up this year, BSB is just as romantic and talented as they were 25 years ago — and our inner-preteen-girl couldn’t be happier. Although the boy band (made up of Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean, Brian Littrell and Howie Dorough) first rose to fame before the new millennium, they are still beloved today. Last year, the boys were featured on Florida Georgia Line’s “God, Your Mama and Me,” performed at CMT: Crossroads and the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards, and they began a Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood. In May 2018, they released their first single in five years called “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” which went No. 1 on iTunes in multiple countries and reached five million YouTube views in just 48 hours.
Formed in 1993, The Backstreet Boys were known for its cute guys and catchy pop songs — oh yeah, and perfectly choreographed movements! The group is one of the best-selling boy bands of all time, with more than 130 million albums sold around the world, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, eight studio albums and 28 singles released, and an album, “Millennium,” that became the best-selling album of 1999. When adult women take their friends and daughters to the show, they will be treated to everything they have loved about the Backstreet Boys since they were kids — familiar hits like “I Want it That Way,” “As Long as You Love Me” and “Larger Than Life,” perfectly styled hair and an irresistible charm. It turns out that we aren’t ready to hang up on the ’90s!
