New Kids On The Block has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide and produced back-to-back international No. 1 songs, 1988’s “Hangin’ Tough” and 1990’s “Step By Step.” They had a series of smash R&B and pop hits including “You Got It (The Right Stuff),” “Cover Girl,” “Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time),” “I’ll Be Loving You” and “Tonight.”
The group split in 1994, but has recently reunited to create new music with an album expected to be released in the fall. Their first new single “Summertime,” was released in May. Also in May, fans received a sneak peak with the group’s first public performance together in 15 years when they performed live on NBC’s ‘TODAY’ Show. The reunion of all five members, who sold millions of albums and sparked a worldwide phenomenon, was embraced enthusiastically by hundreds of screaming fans.
