The song makes you reminisce your teenage years but nonetheless incorporates a contemporary vibe to the classic, old song. NKOTB fans are getting all hyped up for trek and are excited to see what their band from the past has in store for them.
Rise to Fame
The band made history with its first studio album 'Hangin' Tough' featuring the single 'Please Don't Go Girl' that hit number 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles Chart in 1988. By the end of 1988, NKOTB released their second single 'You Got It (The Right Stuff)' as they gained national fame. MTV took charge and started to play their music video on regular intervals, till it reached the top five by the next year. Also worth remembering is their second studio album, 'Merry, Merry Christmas' that hit the top 10 and went double platinum in the U.S. NKOTB was unstoppable as after this album release in 1989, they released another studio album the next year, 'Step by Step'. With another one of their album making it to the top of the Billboard 200 list, the band beat famous celebrities like Madonna and Michael Jackson for being the highest paid entertainers of 1991.
The Band's Break-Up to Patch Up
Unfortunately, when Jonathan Knight from the band left due to health reasons, the rest of the members decided to split as well. Some went solo like Joey McIntyre and Jordan Knight and some went onto pursuing other career paths.
Donnie Wahlberg confirmed the rumor of NKOTB's reunion in 2008 and that they are going to bring in new records and a tour as a comeback gift. Shortly afterwards, the band released their studio album, 'The Block' and it made it to the top of Billboard Top Pop Albums Chart. New NKOTB got nominated in 2012 for a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame and by 2014, their star was there.
The gang has been touring around ever since. In 2016, they announced The Total Package Tour alongside Paula Abdul and Boyz 2 Men and released a new single, 'One More Night' from their upcoming album, 'EP Thankful'. The following year, 'We Were Here' along with several other holiday songs was released.
