God bless the Backstreet Boys, still trudging along after all these years. They memorably merged with also long-ago-peaked boy band New Kids On The Block in hopes of scoring a revival based on pure nostalgia, but it now seems like BSB is willing to upgrade to current trends to stay afloat on the more-than-bloated pop scene. Evidence: new electronic-tinged song “Lost In Space”, produced by Jim Jonsin. Blast off below.
The track begins with some futuristic synth beats, and quickly devolves into a personality-less dance track comprised almost exclusively with vague concepts (“Let’s get lost in space”) and barely-trying rhymes (“Everybody come out to play / Let me hear you say ay, ay, ay”). We’ll take “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” any day over this.
