The quintet made up of AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough, and Nick Carter have developed their music over the years from teen-inspired pop tunes that made them superstars to evolve to more adult contemporary undertones evident in their come-back albums in 2005 – Never Gone and in their 2007 follow up - Unbreakable.
The 2009 release of This is Us featured big hook songs like “PDA”, “Bye Bye Love” and “Straight Through My Heart” featured tracks that reminded fans of the Backstreet Boys magic. The album featured the group’s classic sound and vision while also placing it squarely in today’s music environment. More recently, the Backstreet Boys released a Christmas single, “It’s Christmas Time Again” in 2012.
