The boy-band Black Album: Hear teen pop group members' best solo work

Boy band members go through multiple rites of passage: Finding bras at their feet onstage, rejecting overeager fans, and, for the more confident ones, trying out a solo career.

Justin Timberlake stands out as the most successful boy band member-turned-solo artist, but there are many more where he comes from—his ‘NSync bandmate JC Chasez released Schizophrenic in 2004, and Jesse McCartney went on to have a mildly successful solo career following his Dream Street days. Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter and New Kids on the Block’s Jordan Knight are still trying and teamed up for an album that drops Tuesday. READ FULL STORY

“Trust Me” has a laid-back vibe that feels very Jack Johnson. Its gentle guitar brings Jason Mraz to mind. Sultry lyrics like “Oh love/You and me/Underneath the willow tree/Kissin’, lovin’/Makin’ sweet sexy babies” sound like they could be a PG-13 version of Robin Thicke.

But listen closer to the distinctive voices crooning each verse — not to mention the occasional tight harmony — and you’ll realize that this sweet, acoustic earworm actually comes from the last source you’d expect: the Backstreet Boys, all grown up and unplugged.

“Trust Me” is a new song off their upcoming album, In a World Like This. Get an exclusive preview below — for maximum effect, listen while swinging in a hammock and sipping something cold.

Boy-band feud alert: Did One Direction just copy Backstreet Boys' album title?

Is One Direction copying the Backstreet Boys’ style — and their titles?

In the 1990’s, boy-band feuds were a dime a dozen — back when TRL was filled with screaming girls who wanted nothing more than to be serenaded by the likes of ‘N Sync, Backstreet Boys, and 98 Degrees. But today, TRL is no more, and boy bands aren’t nearly the fad they used to be.

That hasn’t stopped the multiplatinum U.K. X Factor breakouts One Direction from making a whole new generation of young girls scream at ear-piercing volumes. But is One Direction borrowing a little too blatantly from the still-active Backstreet Boys?

When BSB’s AJ McClean stopped by TMZ last year, he wasn’t shy about expressing his opinion on One Direction’s eerily familiar lyrics. Check out the video below:


And now, One Direction’s Liam Payne has tweeted that the official title of the band’s upcoming movie, which was known as 1D3D, has now changed to This Is Us:

Fans of the Backstreet Boys will quickly recognize that as the name of BSB’s most recent album and tour. Could this be the next boy-band feud in the making? And if the answer is yes, whose side are you on?
