The Commonwealth of Massachusetts declared April 24, 1989, “New Kids on the Block Day.” NKOTB spearheaded the boyband era of the 80s, and have been influential on the massive success of teen pop groups to this day. During their heydays in the late 80s to the early 90s, they’ve sold over 80 million albums worldwide. Their solid member line-up includes consists of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, and Danny Wood. Recently they’ve mounted and embarked on a successful worldwide tour as a partner supergroup to their so-called successor–The Backstreet Boys.
98 Degrees is not your typical ‘boyband’. Their music and imaging is skewed towards the adult contemporary market. They’re not your ‘record-label’ manufactured boy group; they formed independently before they got signed to a label. 98 Degree describe their music influence as more RnB and soul, and they’ve established this credibility as they were signed by Motown Records. Yet no one can deny their phenomenal success that is comparable to that of superstar boybands. 98 Degrees, composed of brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre, and Jeff Timmons, have sold over 10 million records worldwide and achieved eight top 40 singles in the U.S alone.
Boys II Men has reached legendary status, even joining the ranks of Elvis Presley, Mariah Carey, and The Beatles — a selected few who have held the number one spot on the charts at least 50 weeks cumulatively. They broke and made new chart topping longevity records that they earned recognition as Billboard Magazine′s fourth most successful musical group of the 1990s. They never rested on the laurels. Since the 90s, baritone Andrew Mcdonald alongside tenors Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman,continue to release albums and tirelessly tour the world.
