It’s been 15 years since Backstreet Boys redefined the modern musical landscape, ushering in a chapter of pop culture that commandeered the world’s radio airwaves, broke music and concert sales records and launched a new generation of teen idols for millions of youth.
In all, the group has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide. Their first two U.S. releases both received the Diamond Award for sales of more than 10 million: Backstreet Boys in 1997 and quintessential Millennium in 1999, which reached #1 in 25 countries. They have scored a dozen top 40 hits, including top five smashes “Quit Playing Games (with My Heart),” “As Long As You Love Me,” Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” and “All I Have To Give.” The majority of the original line-up remains with Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and AJ McLean. Kevin Richardson exited the band with full support from his band mates in 2006.
Their sixth studio release, Unbreakable (2007) on Jive Records, marked a triumphant return for the bands giving fans what they adore – indelible melodies, hooks galore and finely crafted three- and four-part harmonics, demonstrating that the group has matured into talented musicians who still love what it is they do so well. Unbreakable’s first single “Inconsolable,” produced by Emanuel Kiriakou, is a classic piano-driven mid-tempo ballad and was reminiscent of the group’s biggest hits. Upon its release in September 2007, it was an instant add at pop radio stations across the country.
