The Backstreet Boys are back with a new song titled Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, their first track in five years. Band member AJ McLean called it “just the beginning of the next Backstreet Boys’ chapter”.
“Boom. Brand spankin’ new single and music video is here! I’m so excited for you guys to finally hear what me and the boys have been working on!,” McLean tweeted on Thursday.
Members Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson and McLean might no longer be teenagers or in their 20s but that didn’t stop them from doing age-defying synchronised dance moves in the video, which also features the hologram of a woman.
“New Backstreet Boys single and video out now! Thank you for sticking with us for 25 years,” Carter tweeted.
The love song was the number one trending topic in the US on Twitter. It comes a month after the group, who performed in Dubai on April 20, celebrated its 25th anniversary.
Backstreet Boys ruled the charts in the 90s with songs such as I Want it That Way, As Long As You Love Me and Quit Playing Games. Their eight album In a World Like This released in 2013.
