The Backstreet Boys are one of the world’s iconic boybands. So their legions of fans have been waiting in anticipation for the release of their tell-all documentary Backstreet Boys: Show ‘em What You’re Made Of. HELLO! Online caught up with band member Howie Dorough who explained why it was the perfect time for the group to share a peek behind the scenes.
“It’s something we’ve talked about for many years,” he told us exclusively. “We wanted our fans to see how our group works and how we got together, and celebrating our 20th anniversary seemed like the perfect time.”
Howie revealed that despite the boys’ phenomenal success, they’ve felt more freedom since breaking away from record label Jive Records in 2011.
“We’d love to be back on top of the charts, but a lot of that pressure isn’t there anymore,” he admitted.
“In the past we didn’t have to think about anything apart from performing on stage – people usually handled the rest for us. This time around we had a lot more freedom.”
AJ has been working on a new solo album for the last several months and according to Jordan James (who worked on the album with him) it’s finished. Jordan posted a photo on instagram of what is the track list. AJ also posted the same photo and wrote “the countdown begins now. Are u ready?”
