A Collab For The Ages! NKOTB Teams Up With Salt-N-Pepa, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson & Naughty By Nature On “80s Baby”

Talk about a blast from the past! New Kids On The Block are going on tour with fellow ’80s and ’90s hitmakers Tiffany (“I Think We’re Alone Now”), Debbie Gibson (“Lost In Your Eyes”), Salt-N-Pepa (“Push It”) and Naughty By Nature (“O.P.P.”). The Mixtape Tour kicks off in Cincinnati, Ohio on May 2, 2019 and then stops just about everywhere in North America before winding up in Hollywood, Florida on July 14. I’m particularly excited for the show at the Hollywood Bowl on May 26.

But that’s not all. To celebrate the announcement, NKOTB teamed up with their future tour-mates for a new single called “80s Baby” and it’s way more fun than it has any right to be. The feel-good bop, which references everything from stone wash jeans to big hair and Madonna lyrics, is absurdly catchy and perfectly executed. Each performer has their own moment to shine and it comes across as warmly nostalgic instead of… well, desperate. And fans seem to love it. Believe it or not, “80s Baby” is already top 20 on iTunes!
