Backstreet Boys Snatch iTunes #1 From Christina Aguilera & Demi Lovato
It’s 1999 all over again on iTunes! Early this morning (May 17), Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato ascended to the top spot with girl-power anthem, “Fall In Line” — only to have it snatched away by the Backstreet Boys! The legendary boy band, who recently signed a new deal with RCA Records, surprised many with the instant success of comeback single, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.” But it all makes sense once you’ve heard it. Written by Wrabel and co-produced by Stuart Crichton and Jamie Hartman, this is the group’s best single since the ’90s.
“The minute we heard this song we knew it was special,” Kevin Richardson says of the emotional synth-pop anthem. “I geeked out over the piano and synths. When that groove drops on the second verse, COME ON. Great verse, hook and melodies. Just makes you wanna listen over and over again.” Fighters and Lovatics shouldn’t be too disappointed. “Fall In Line” is sure to rebound when Christina and Demi take the stage at the Billboard Music Awards on May 20. It’s almost a given that they deliver vocals, emotion and a little drama. Listen to both songs below.
