BY THE NUMBERS
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.
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.
