Man, at least NKOTB still have the whole “comeback” thing going for them. The Backstreet Boys are just has-beens who won’t quit. They’re in the studio again, recording their sixth album, slated to be released in late 2008, where it will compete with the latest release from the New Kids.
They’re still missing Kevin Richardson, who had the good sense to get out before the sinking ship was completely submerged in the murky waters of surrendered dignity.
To make matters worse, AJ McLean and Howie Dorough are also recording ill-fated solo albums. And Howie’s is going to have a Latin flair. “I’ve always embraced the Latin rhythms, the Latin sounds, just the music itself,” he says. “It’s just such a feel-good music, and I’ve always looked up to people like Jon Secada, Ricky Martin, Enrique [Iglesias], who have done a good crossover.”
Good luck with that, Howie.
