Who are the backstreet boys
It’s almost impossible that you haven’t seen them or heard about the Backstreet Boys. They have pretty much been on everything. This 90’s band is constituted by A.J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter and Kevin Richardson. So maybe if you haven’t heard of them as a group, you might have heard of them as soloists.
There’s never too much that one can do, and these boys – well, now men – can do a lot in their side. Creativity always finds its way, and that is shown in every project they have as individuals. They have always been into music, not only as singers but also as writers for other figures. Also, never forgetting their most human part, they are also responsible for several charities.
Inside the members
As we said before, every one of five parts that make Backstreet Boys have their own projects and careers apart from the band. And they are just as great and successful individually as they are as a group. That’s why we will make a special mention of every member and their achievements as a soloist, so keep on reading.
A.J. started his career really early in life. As a child actor, he started and appeared in movies and many T.V shows. In the 80’s he started his first movie and continued to act in shows like “Welcome Freshmen” and “Hi Honey, I’m Home!” until the 90s. At this stage, he met the Backstreet Boys, and his fame started to rise.
As he grew old, he got an alter ego and has done various music shows as that alter. But, on the other hand, he created a foundation to investigate diabetes. He also has been involved in support of causes like keeping music programs in schools and helping HIV victims. All that at the same time as keeping the band and a gorgeous family.
A lover of the arts from a pretty young age, Howie started his projects at merely six years old as a singer. Since then, he has been through theatre, dance, singing, T.V and film acting, and songwriting. Despite the bullying suffered as a young kid, he got involved in a counselling group that kept boys away from the streets. Whilst being on the Backstreet Boys, he also focused on getting his college degree.
He has worked for other singers as a songwriter and has have solo music and albums for himself as other projects. As a special mention, he performed with Britney Spears on her Latin American tour in 2011 and has appeared in many movies, and T.V. shows since then. All of his success is completed with his wife and two children.
Brian started his love for music at seven years old when he was participating in a youth chorus. He started singing in weddings and some school plays and kept the love for music from then on. His cousin, later to be bandmate, got him in Backstreet Boys. Since then, he’s been focused on music, songwriting, and acting, having a solo album for himself. He is, as well, the proud dad of a new generation singer and is happily married.
At age 10, Nick started the artistic life getting into acting and singing at a specialized school. From this moment on, he began having opportunities in acting and music at a still young age. All of these chances resumed when he got the chance of being on the Backstreet Boys in the 90s. Thus, being the first one on getting a solo career before the rest joined. Ever since then, he’s been singing and acting and in case you’re wondering, he too has a beautiful wife and three children.
Being the oldest of the band members, he started his life more interested in acting and singing. He started this by working as Aladin on Disney – where he also met his now-wife, with whom he has two kids. In the 90’s he got his chance of being a Backstreet Boy, but sooner than later, he saw his goals beyond the band.
He engaged in some theatre experiences, and in 2006 he officially parted ways with the band. Instead, he focused on writing music, being a model, acting, and his family. Years later, in 2012, he became part of the band, and he’s proud to say he’s part of the Backstreet Boys.
Why they became famous
Nowadays, it’s hard to picture the Backstreet Boys as the big boy band they used to be back then. But, let us tell you that these guys had everything that now we know as the boy band formula back in the day. Not only are they handsome, but also lovely and fun, adding to that their stage presence and their unique voices.
On the other hand, their music style came as something new, entertaining, and fun to listen to. People loved their sound and the feelings they could make you feel through their lyrics. They had the audience love since their debut with their album “Backstreet Boys”. All those years until now, their music has been praised and loved by their fans.

It’s true that maybe we didn’t hear as much from them in a while. Last year, however, they shocked their fans by announcing the release of a new song. This song is called ”Matches” and features the one and only Britney Spears. The song brought hope to the loyal fans, and we were promised a new upcoming album in 2021.
This album is like no other since it’s going to be a Christmas album. In all of their years as a band or independently, they have never made a Christmas álbum. One of the band members, A.J., said: “the next thing on our list is to finally have a Christmas album, which we’ve never done to this day. We’re still talking about it, trying to find out how we’re going to make it happen for next year, but we’re talking about songs now. Next year, the next thing you’ll hear as a group will be a Christmas album.” He said in an interview.
As we said before, they are coming back with a project we have never seen before. Last year they dropped a beautiful single – where we can get a glance of their familiar life. Also, they did a collaboration with a huge pop singer like Britney. And as if that wasn’t enough, they had the Christmas album surprise ready for us.
