What a month, right?
One would think after the Backstreet Boys announced their album release and upcoming tour, they would take the rest of the year off and a well deserved break. As we all know though, we’re fans of the five hardest working men in the music industry and this month was full of a few more year-end successes!
If you think you’ve missed anything (or even if you haven’t), we’ve recapped it all below for an end of the year catch-up.
- AJ and Howie attended Wales Comic Con at the beginning of the month. Our friend Janneke shared their Q&A panel with us — watch below!
- Baylee Littrell released a single on country music radio, “Don’t Knock It”. If you haven’t bought it yet, you can do so here. Check out the release party festivities and all of Brian’s proudest dad moments here.
- There’s a ton of new merch! Whether it’s a holiday or your birthday, you can find a gift guide here.
- Shawn Mendes spoke about co-writing the Backstreet Boys’ new single, “Chances”. Watch him talk about not being able “to wrap his head around it” here.
- The Boys were nominated for a GRAMMY! We’re still not over that sentence. We’re so so proud and will be watching excitedly in February.
- Pentatonix had the Backstreet Boys on their annual Christmas special for a eargasmic “Winter Wonderland” duet! We *need* them to record this for a studio version.
- Under The Tree With BSB in Boston was an entirely acoustic concert that fans had to win their way into. Listen here to hear the Mix 104.1 DJs discuss behind the scene with the “delightful” Backstreet Boys, here for a brief portion of the BSB Q&A, and see photos here. Oh, and you **MIGHT** want to hear this beautiful performance of “Chances”.
- The Boys headed to Connecticut to take part in 96.5 TIC’s All Star Christmas. Listen to their pre-show interview here.
- In their last performance of the year, the Backstreet Boys headed to Texas for the Merry Mix Show in Austin. Find Meet and Greet photos here and watch their backstage interview and game here.
Now you’re all caught up!
This will likely be our last post before Christmas. We’d like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday – wherever and whoever you are. ❤
It’s been a while. In fact, it’s been nearly a month! We’ve never left you guys hanging that long and if that kept you out of the loop, we apologize and thank YOU for sticking with us. The easiest way to come back was with an update post of ALL THE THINGS going on right now that you need to know about.

When we said at the beginning of the year that the Backstreet Boys were only getting started, WE WERE NOT KIDDING.
There’s so so so so soooo much going on that between our longer posts, these catch-up posts are almost necessary because we’d hate for anyone to miss anything! So… here it goes:
- AJ McLean shot his new music video for a sexy single called “Night Visions” and, from the looks of it, he’s getting arrested and Paul from ‘Big Brother 18’ and ‘Big Brother 19’ is involved? We can’t WAIT to see (and hear it)!
- Finally, AJ is having a private listening party at Top Golf in Las Vegas on Thursday, August 2nd and the ONLY way in is to win. 95.5 The Bull is giving away passes — get your details here.
- We learned a few new things about the Backstreet Boys, but it turns out, they actually know each other pretty well (even if Howie DID cheat)!
- Speaking of learning new things, Brian Littrell did a quickfire Q&A with Daily Mail and if you want to know what his best and worst qualities are, his first childhood memory, his bucketlist item and more, click here!
- Brian also did a photo shoot at Hartfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta to become a part of the celebrities “welcoming” you to Atlanta!
- The Backstreet Army is facing off against Cardi B.’s Bardi Gang in Billboard’s 2018 Fan Army Bracket. Vote NOW!
- Don’t forget to vote for the Backstreet Boys in 2018’s Best of Vegas awards as well. They’re nomintated for Best Headliner / Resident Artist, Best Bachelorette Party, and Best Production. Catch the Backstreet Boys back in Vegas THIS WEEK!
- According to the Late, Late Show With James Corden commercial running on CBS, the footage from his time in Vegas with the Boys will be airing sometime this week. We’ll keep you updated as to when when we find out.
- Oh…and this one last little thing…

We know, we know – we said weekly update. Simply put, in the month of September, there weren’t enough things going on for the Boys that warranted such frequent updates. The Backstreet Boys took a bit of a break and so did we.
But we’re back! And they will be too in a few weeks (Are you ready, Singapore? You’re first!). If you guys are still with us, HEY! Welcome back! Thank you for hanging in there and for loving + supporting Kevin, Howie, Brian, Nick and AJ as much as we do. Are you ready for all the things? Because these men are about to GIVE. IT. TO. YOU.
Here’s a roundup for a few of the most important things + WHOTB posts you might have missed in the past month:

We asked on Twitter if you’d want weekly update posts to help you keep up with what is literally happening on the Backstreet — because these five are BUSY!
You said yes and here we are. These posts will come weekly (I’ll try, at least…) – usually on the weekend – and will not contain new content, but will try to include everything you might have missed from the previous week from the world of BSB (and our posts for the week).
This one is coming a little early — but there was so much this week and we’re not even through!!
Here are the highlights from August 19th-23rd:
