New Boyband Alert: Next Town Down

Get ready to meet your new favorite boyband, Next Town Down! Terence, Tre’Von, Chris, Malik, and Leon have clearly studied up on their boyband history.  They released an incredible video, “The Evolution of Boybands,” that hits everyone from The Temptations to New Edition to *NSYNC and B2K.  They absolutely nail the harmonies and the choreography from each era in boyband history.  The video has been blowing up on social media, with the band getting love from *NSYNC and Ricky Bell.

Next Town Down also dropped their first original single, “Good Times” and you can hear all of their influences in the track!   It’s the perfect feel good pop song.  The guys, who found each other on social media, all grew up listening to Boyz II Men and New Edition.  Listen to “Good Times” now!

Pickup a copy of “Good Times on iTunes now!

Oh, and did we mention that they sang “Hero” for Mariah Carey and she teared up a little?

Justin Timberlake “Can’t Stop The Feeling”

We can’t stop fangirling because JT is back with a new song!  And  we didn’t have to wait 7 years for more music from Justin this time! The new track, “CAN’T STOP THE FEELING!” is the first from the upcoming “Trolls” movie soundtrack, which JT is creating.  The feel good song will have you dancing along in no time (seriously, try to resist) and just might be the Song of the Summer.  Watch the video below featuring the cast of “Trolls.”

Pickup a copy of “CAN’T STOP THE FEELING!” on iTunes now and get excited for more new music form JT when the “Trolls” soundtrack drops in September.

Listen To “In The End” from Dead 7 Featuring *NSYNC, BSB, O-Town & 98 Degrees

We’ve been fangirling hard waiting for the premiere “Dead 7,” the zombie movie written by Nick Carter, starring members of *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, O-Town and 98 Degrees.  And it just got even better. Nick, Howie Dorough, and AJ McLean of Backstreet Boys; Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone of *NSYNC; Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees; and Erik-Michael Estrada from O-Town joined forces to record a song for the soundtrack.

The movie premieres this Friday, April 1st at 8pm on SyFy, from the people who brought you “Sharknado.”  AKA this is already the best movie of 2016 and you better be tuned in on Friday night.  Listen to “In The End” from the movie below!

Download the track for free here!  We can only hope this is just the first time that these boybands will join forces!

The Friday Five: Super Bowl Halftime Shows

It’s Super Bowl time once again and while the ads are fun (remember the Tim Tebow one with the puppies?) the halftime show is what we’re all watching for…right?  Coldplay is set to perform this year, along with some special guests.   In honor of Sunday’s game, we’re throwing it back to our five favorite halftime shows!  Which reminds us:  how have Backstreet Boys not done a halftime show?   Can someone get on that for 2017?

1. *NSYNC, Britney Spears, & Aerosmith – 2001
THE GREATEST HALFTIME SHOW OF ALL TIME.

2. NKOTB – 1991
This one’s for the children.

3. Shania Twain & No Doubt – 2003
Not sure what the theme was here, but what’s not to like?  Shania Twain?  Good.  No Doubt?  Good.  Let’s go football fans!

4. Justin Timberlake & Janet Jackson – 2004
If they had just had *NSYNC perform again, that whole wardrobe malfunction wouldn’t have happened, just saying.

5. Beyonce & Destiny’s Child – 2013
Like JT briefly acknowledged *NSYNC at the VMAs in 2013, Beyonce brought back Destiny’s Child for a hot second at the halftime show the same year.

Fall Out Boy + Demi Lovato + *NSYNC = “Irresistible”

The brand new music video for Fall Out Boy and Demi Lovato’s collaboration on the new single “Irresistible” is everything we ever wanted – Demi Lovato on a Fall Out Boy song in a music video that’s an homage to our favorite *NSYNC video!

Patrick, Joe, Andy, and Pete are turned into dolls that nobody wants, just like *NSYNC was overlooked in the original video.

The description for the video says it’s “about the toys that nobody wants that come to life” and form a band of misfits together.   Even better: Wayne Isham, the same director who did the original *NSYNC “It’s Gonna Be Me” video reprises the doll video, and he even brought Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone back for the FOB + Demi collab.

Watch the video below for some serious boyband nostalgia!

Fall Out Boy are hitting the road this Spring on the “WinTour Is Coming” Tour featuring AWOLNATION and PVRIS.  Check out the dates and get your tickets HERE.

Pick up a copy of “American Beauty/American Psycho” on iTunes or Amazon now.

Be sure to follow Fall Out Boy, Demi Lovato, *NSYNC, and Secret Fangirls on Twitter.

The Friday Five: Christmas Playlist

If you, like us, were already sick of hearing Taylor Swift’s version of “Last Christmas” by Noon on Black Friday, here are some Holiday jams that we never get sick of!  (Really, let’s just keep *NSYNC’s “Home For Christmas” album on repeat for the next 3 weeks)

1. “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays” by *NSYNC

2. “Merry Christmas Baby” by Hunter Hayes

3. “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” by Dan + Shay

4. “Fa La La” by Justin Bieber featuring Boyz II Men

5. “Beautiful Christmas” by Big Time Rush

BONUS: “What Christmas Means To Me” by Hanson

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.
