Big Time Rush Drop New Single “Call It Like I See It”

NOTHING EVEN MATTERS BECAUSE BTR IS BACK!!!!! We’ve been waiting 8 long years to say this, and are beyond excited that Big Time Rush dropped their first new single, “Call It Like I See it” just ahead of their reunion concerts this week. They are ready to do it all over again and will be performing this week at the Q102 Jingle Ball in Philadelphia TONIGHT and then headlining their shows in Chicago on Wednesday and New York City on Saturday! It’s going to be a big night in Philly with their first live show in almost 8 years!

If you are lucky enough to be going to one of the shows, odds are you’ll be among the first to hear their new single live plus some old favorites. The band has been posting behind the scenes videos of them rehearsing dance moves to all of your old favorites, too. You know you’re going to party all night and have the time of your life!

We couldn’t help but notice the publishing credits on Spotify for the new song are listed as “Bought the Rights 2021.” It looks like Kendall, Logan, James, and Carlos will be calling it like they see it for ALL their new music!

Music sounds better with Big Time Rush back and we’re hoping they’re just getting started and news about their 4th album and a full tour are on the way. Until then, we’ll be playing the new track on loop 24/7, driving around with the windows down until we blow our speakers out.

Stream or pick up a copy of “Call It Like I See It” on your favorite platform and check out Big Time Rush’s upcoming tour dates here.

Logan Henderson Releases Debut Solo Single, “Sleepwalker”

You might know him as 1/4th of Big Time Rush, but Logan Henderson is stepping away from his boyband past and into the dark shadows of what he calls “grungy pop” music with his first solo single called “Sleepwalker.”  AND WE ARE SO HERE FOR THIS!   It sounds like a natural evolution of BTR’s sound (Logan co-wrote many of their songs!)  with a more mature, unique twist on things.  He teamed up with producer RAS who worked with BTR in the past as well as some well known artists like Avicii and Waka Flocka Flame.

“It’s about a guy who’s stuck in this Inception type of dream with this woman, and he’s reliving a lot of things,” Logan says about his new single.  He said not to expect this same sound for the rest of his music but we would be TOTALLY be okay if this sound stayed with Logan!

Watch the official video for “Sleepwalker” below!

The Friday Five: Boyband Draft

It’s boyband week over at Billboard.com, AKA the greatest thing ever.  Every week should be boyband week.  In honor of the occasion, Billboard staffers held a fantasy boyband draft, assembling their dream teams.  For this week’s Friday Five, we decided to get in on the fun and do our own boyband draft and create 2 super boybands: J5 and *Big Time Boys on the Block°.  The only rules were that you can’t pick 2 members from the same band.  Check out our picks and vote for your favorite!

Team A: J5 (JC, Joey, James, Jeff and Jesse)

JC Chasez
One of the greatest male vocalists, ever.  He can still hit ALL the notes, and he hasn’t aged a day since “Bye Bye Bye.”

Joey McIntyre
Just watch this performance from The Main Event Tour, and you’ll know why Joey is the MVP of any boyband.  Those vocals.  Those moves.  Those abs.

James Maslow
We knew James was a national treasure during Big Time Rush’s run, but he further proved it in his run to the final 3 of “Dancing With The Stars.”   Enjoy.

Jeff Timmons
Jeff has had the most uh, interesting post-boyband career.  He brings the moves for sure.  Fun fact we somehow just discovered: He was part of a “man band” on VH1 called “Sureshot” with Chris Kirkpatrick, Rich Cronin and Bryan Abrams in 2007.

Jesse McCartney
The most underrated former boyband member (Dreamstreet!).  His last single, “Punch Drunk Recreation,” and the accompanying video (where J Mac basically leads his own boyband) have not gotten nearly enough love.

Team B: *Big Time Boys on the Block°

Nick Carter
Nick has had his struggles in the past but he overcame them and continues to BRING IT every night on stage giving 110% during every show.  He also likes to make up his own moves on stage which is always A+ in my book.

Donnie Wahlberg
Do you watch NKOTV every week on A&E?  NO??  You should.  It’s the greatest night for television and you’ll see why Donnie Wahlberg is my top pick for boyband.  He knows how to treat the fans, he’s great to his wife (secret fangirl: Jenny McCarthy) and his family.  Plus – watch this video for further proof of A+ boybanding.

Nick Lachey
Another former boyband member who has a TV show about his own restaurant (“Raising The Bar” on A&E every Wednesday night.)  Let’s face it, Nick Lachey was the best looking member of 98* and he’s been the most successful – aside from Jeff Timmons’ stripper revue.

Kendall Schmidt
Kendall has seamlessly transitioned into boyband member to acoustic singer-songwriter while not alienating any fans from either end of the spectrum.  He’s got a good voice, and whether he wants to admit it or not – this boy can DANCE!  Plus, he’s got great hair.

Joey Fatone
He appeared on Hannah Montana, dancing with the stars, various food critic reality shows, and he’s still the most underrated member of *N SYNC.  Let’s not forget that Joey was also in “On The Line” with Lance.
