If some of your favorite Backstreet Boys tracks are “Shape of My Heart” and “I Want It That Way,” their new song might appeal to you. The boy brand reunite with their longtime collaborator Max Martin for “In A World Like This.” The up-tempo track is by a long shot their best track since their prime. It’s about finding love when you need it the most. Here’s what AJ Maclean recently told MTV News about their new single.
“I think ‘In a World Like This,’ both in a pop world that we’ve been living in for the past 20 years, and just the world that we live in with all the different things, positive things [and] negative things going on in this entire world. We’re still here 20 years later, living in this world that we’ve created. And I think it’s positive actually. It does kind of sound a little dark, but I think it’s positive.” – AJ Maclean
“In A World Like This” is the lead cut from their upcoming album scheduled to drop in July. While their other boy band compatriots band together for The Package Tour, BSB are hitting the road with DJ Pauly D and Jesse McCartney. Give their latest a listen below.
