There’s a special album in the discography of every artist or band and for the Backstreet Boys “Mellennium” might be the one. It brought them even more success, something that could’ve been difficult after the release of the 1997 record “Backstreet’s Back” with the mega hit “Everybody” in the tracklist. However, the boys did it and now the project is about to be twenty years old – an anniversary that will surely be celebrated.
This Monday (13), the Backstreet Boys asked their fans to follow their official account on YouTube and to keep their eyes on something new they are working on. So far, they released a teaser trailer, where we can see parts of the videos from the “Mellenium” era, like “Larger Than Life”, “Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely” and “I Want It That Way”. Watch:

“Millennium” was released on March 18th 1999 by the extinct Jive Records and sold over 1.1 million copies on its first week of sales, debuting at number 1 on the Billboard 200. That was the first time the Backstreet Boys made it to the top of the album chart – and they did it again in 2000 with “Black & Blue” and this year, in january, with their most recent record “DNA”.
Currently, the boy band in on the road with its “DNA World Tour”, that premiered last Saturday in Lisbon, Portugal. This Monday they will perform in Madrid, Spain, and later they will continue in Europe until the end of June when they will take the tour back home to North America.
