It’s our favourite boyband’s 20th anniversary and they celebrated by debuting their brand music video, “In a World Like This,” on Good Morning America. You got it, Backstreet’s back alright!
Backstreet Boys’ A.J. McLean told GMA that the song “tells a story of how love conquers all and ‘in a world like this’ that we live in, with all the craziness and negative energy that can go around, with real love you can overcome anything,”
The new song features all of the band’s original members including Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, A.J. McLean and Kevin Richardson. The new single boasts the same pop sound that gained them recognition in their prime with tunes like “Everybody” and “I Want it That Way.”
A.J. also pointed out that the single touches on major moments in history such as man’s first landing on the moon, the 9/11 terrorist attacks as well as marriage equality.
“Marriage equality is an ongoing issue for years. BSB wants to show our support for the LGBT community and we believe that two people of the same sex should have the right to get married,” McLean told GMA.
Backstreet Boys’ upcoming album In a World Like This on July 30, and will kick off their In a World Like This tour in Chicago on Aug. 2.
