Pop icons the Backstreet boys have released a new single and music video which’ll not only take you down memory lane but will also remind you why they’re the best. Because they’re larger than life… geddit geddit?
Member Nick Carter shared the news of the music video on his social media, thanking his fans for “sticking around for 25 years.
“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” — written by Stephen Wrabel and produced by Stuart Crichton and Jamie Hartman — was recorded immediately after the first leg of the band’s successful 26-show Las Vegas residency, Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life, which will kick off again with an additional 21 shows in July until November.
Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough had been teasing the song’s release throughout the week and celebrating with a three-day social media countdown until the premiere.
And fans of the boyband turned manband will not be disappointed, as the group also dropped the single’s video in which the quintet shows off some impressive interpretive and synchronized dance moves that harkened back to their heyday.
The boys dance with a light show as their backdrop while McLean does his best to serenade what appears to be a hologram of a very attractive woman.
The new single release comes nearly a month after the Backstreet Boys celebrated their 25th anniversary. And they’re still going strong.
