Num­ber of records the Back­street Boys have sold world­wide, mak­ing them the best­selling boy­band of all time.


They’re the first act since Sade – and the first boy­band – to have their first nine al­bums reach the top 10 on the Bill­board 200.

25 18

Last year they had their 18th Bill­board Hot 100 en­try, Don’t Go Break­ing My Heart. “Af­ter 25 years, to be played on ra­dio and get as much love as Heart has got­ten, is still over­whelm­ing,” AJ says. They’ve been to­gether for 25 years and still fea­ture the orig­i­nal lineup of AJ McLean (40), Howie Dor­ough (45), Nick Carter (38), Kevin Richard­son (47) and Brian Lit­trell (43).


They’ve had six top 10 en­tries on the Bill­board Hot 100 chart and two No 1 hits – I Want It That Way and Show Me the Mean­ing of Be­ing Lonely.


They’ve had one Las Ve­gas res­i­dency, Larger than Life, which kicked off in 2017 and will fin­ish in April ahead of their world tour.
