Is It 1999 or Something Because the Backstreet Boys Have a New Song

What year is it? The Backstreet Boys have a new song out, so I’m confused. There’s no doubt, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” has all the hallmarks of the ’90s boy band we (have) love(d): the quintessential BSB signatures of “I Regret My Callousness” piano, Olympic synchronized swimming–level coordinated moves, denim on denim (on denim on denim), Nick Carter’s plaintive squeak (he’s 38 years old), finger snaps so exaggerated they look like they come from an instructional video for toddlers, unwarranted but appreciated jacket removal, and a leather bucket hat (that one’s new for 2018, I think). There’s also a nice lady laying about for no particular reason. (Does she, like, date them all? That’s fine, obviously, but how does it work?)

Plus, it contains the truly inarguable lines: “Baby, don’t go breaking my heart / ‘Cos it’s the only one I got.” Wow, so true!!!!!!!!! Note: This song may not be a cover of the Elton John and Kiki Dee classic duet, but it still bangs.

Watch Carter, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough, AJ McLean, and Brian Littrell bring the beat back above. And if you want to do that live, you can on their forthcoming summer tour dates or Las Vegas residency.
