One of the most interesting developments of 2017 has been the resurgence of the boy band. The demise of One Direction left a gap in the market and a gaggle of new groups are vying to fill it. PRETTYMUCH is a contender given the backing of Simon Cowell (and the fact that their debut single is a bop), while In Real Life is the product of a popular ABC TV show and already has a built-in fanbase. Why Don’t We has taken a more grass-roots approach, but they have amassed a huge following in less than a year.
In fact, the fivesome came perilously close to landing their breakthrough hit with “Something Different.” It received a lot of love at pop radio and has racked up 15 million Spotify streams. They should have just as much luck with “Invitation,” the title track of the boy band’s new EP (due September 29). It’s not as immediate or pop as their last single, but it’s surprisingly slick and proves the guys are equally adept at R&B. Check out their Invitation tracklist below and listen to the song at the bottom of the post.
