LOOOOOOOKING back on the things they’ve DONNEEEEE….
Well, we’re tired of doing that. Let’s talk about what we want to see from Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ and Nick in future because as Nick Carter famously coded in his Millennium liner notes (someone please ask him how long that took to do), THE FUTURE IS SCARCE! We need some wishes granted pronto, ya know?
So here goes…
1. The Release Of A Christmas Album…And That Acoustic Album?
Another year without a Backstreet Boys holiday album (where we are forced to turn to that other boyband who actually does have a really decent one) has come and gone, but after the Boys dropped news that they were going to move forward with churning one out in the near future, we have hope for one in 2020! At least one of the Backstreet Boys is hoping for the same — Brian Littrell is forecasting the release for 2020 as well. If we don’t get it by next Christmas, the Backstreet Army will be storming the North Pole to have a long talk with Santa.
There was also a collection of their past music rerecorded acoustically that has yet to be released. Fingers crossed that it’s in our ears at some point in the next decade.
2. The Backstreet Kids Growing Up!
By the end of the next decade, the majority of the existing Backstreet kids will be teenagers!
We’ll give you a minute to stop your head from spinning.
We can’t wait to see what the future holds for these children and to watch their dads continue to be proud of them. We’re also thrilled to watch Baylee’s career continue to blossom (have we mentioned he’ll be nearly 30 by the end of the decade? Ouch. Our brains).
Mannnn, we really hope Nick is still making pancakes for Odin when he’s 13!
3. A Return To Vegas?
We love, love, love the tour life and obviously, the Backstreet Boys coming to us is convenient, but there was something fun and magical about the Vegas residency. Maybe it was the fact that we could fit multiple shows into one trip without having to go anywhere (plus fit fun things in between) or maybe it was all of our friends meeting in one place or maybe things were a blur because we hardly slept (but were also more well rested than tour kind of?) or MAYBE it was the fact that the pricing was generally better than on tour.
WHATEVER it was that made us love the BSB Vegas residency, we hope that we have the chance to do it all over again….between other things, of course. It also beats the alternative to not having anything at all, right?
4. More VIP Events and Cruises.
This decade has brought us so many new experiences with Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ and Nick. From different VIP Meet and Greet experiences to birthday parties to afterparties to cruises and so much more, we can’t go back to where we started now! Years ago, we never thought the opportunities we’ve been given would have even been possible, but here we are. These events are the location of some of our favorite memories and we hope to only make more.
An island event perhaps? A party bus? A party plane? We have hiiiiigh hopes!
5. Music. Music. Music.
This is what we came for. This is why we stay. This is all we ask for even if we just got a new album.
Well, not all we ask for…but it is the basis.
6. A Grammy.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, RECORDING ACADEMY….GIVE THESE MEN A GRAMMY.
The tears of Backstreet fans worldwide will surely cause a flood when they do, right?
7. More Moments We’ll Never Forget.
The memory that just popped into your head while reading that — yeah, more of those. We’ve been lucky enough to love a band for almost 26 years and the number of things we’ve experienced because of them are endless. We know we reiterate it allllll the time, but damn, it’s really special, ya know? You know.
Also, can we get some wax figures, Madame Tussauds? That’s a moment we haven’t gotten yet and basically, they’re / we’re not getting any younger. We need them IMMORTAL.
8. AJ’s Solo Album.
Just gonna leave this one (or two or three) here. 🙂 Maybe someday.
9. A Few Collaborations.
We’ve had a taste of the Backstreet Boys in the country realm (where they won an award, joined in a stadium tour, and hit #1 on country charts with Florida Georgia Line) and a taste of the Backstreet Boys in the EDM world (where they hit #1 on Dance charts, garnered a lot of attention with a music video, and more with Steve Aoki), but we want more! Of course we love the Boys on their own, but these collabs have proven to be excellent exposure and have exposed a lot of other celebrities as BSB fans (Tim McGraw and Lauren Alaina, anyone?).
Check out this past post for some ladies that we’d love to see them collab with in the future!
10. Another Decade.
We’re aware that this is like your 3rd wish from a genie being to have more wishes but we’ve been spoiled to a band that sticks together and, well, we want it that way. Let’s be real though – whether the Backstreet Boys play until they’re Mick Jaggering or not, as long as we are alive, we’ll
be shoving them down everyone’s throats forever make sure that the music, the myths, and the legends that Kevin, Brian, AJ, Howie and Nick are and have created will live on for decades to come.
And we’d also like some merch disguised as home decor, kthx.
