In A World Like This, the new album from the Backstreet Boys, debuted at #5 on Billboards Top 200.
In A World Like This marks the 8th consecutive Backstreet Boys album to debut in the Top 10.
In A World Like This (K-BAHN / BMG), released on July 30th, celebrates the groups 20thAnniversary and has already seen BSB honored with a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame, among other remarkable occasions.
The group is currently on a headlining world-tour that is selling out many of the top amphitheaters and arenas across North America. Tour dates are listed below.
Watch BSB perform the title track and Max Martin penned first single on Jimmy Kimmel Live, a song the Associated Press praises for its “simple guitar chords that draw you in and a catchy, wholesome beat that keeps you tapping your feet,” and a performance Rolling Stone adds in front of “a crowd of shouting fans; it could have been 1999 again.”
Along with a memorable appearance in the Seth Rogen hit film “This Is The End” and a hilarious performance of David Letterman’s Top 10 List, the Backstreet Boys stopped by cult favorite and Joel McHale hosted The Soup. Watch here:
The Soup Blooper reel:
In A World Like This sees all 5 original members together again, revisiting the groundbreaking dance-pop sound that first made them international superstars.
The Los Angeles Times raves In A World Like This “makes a case that the Boys’ talents – particularly when paired with the magic wand of longtime songwriter Max Martin – will survive almost any pop-culture apocalypse.”
Newsday goes on to say “the Backstreet Boys build the sweetest pop of any boy band around. And on ‘In a World Like This’ … they continue the tradition … Backstreet rides strong hooks and a touch of melancholy to create some memorable new sing-alongs.”
Perez Hilton simply says “The five most AH-Mazing boys in music history are still making spectacular new music … Yes!!! [In A World Like This] has lyrics, it has music, it has a beat, it has everything you could hope for … We love it!!!”
