Backstreet’s back this summer, butAJ McLeanis planning ahead.
The original Backstreet Boy shares his big-picture ideas for the group that brought us bangers like “I Want It That Way” and “As Long As You Love Me” withKeltie Knight,Jac VanekandBecca Tobinin this clip from Sunday’s newLADYGANG. If you’re a fan of iconic ’90s boy bands—like Keltie, Jac and Becca—then you’ll probably spend the rest of this year hoping AJ’s master plan for an even bigger reunion tour really does come to fruition one day.
Why? For starters, it involvesJustin Timberlakecircling back to his own ’90s boy band roots. Much to the ladies’ palpable excitement, AJ takes a few seconds mid-way throughLADYGANG‘s new clip to present them with an elevator pitch for aBackstreet Boys/*NSYNCmashup reunion tour. And it’s pretty convincing!
“I think Justin should come back. One tour. All ten of us go out. Stadiums,” he starts, since “it’s not a reunion if not all five members attend,” as Keltie expressed earlier. “It would be the biggest thing since sliced bread,” he concludes, and the gals couldn’t agree more.
“It would be bigger!” Jac sighs, as Keltie mimes some sort of explosion happening on either side of her head. (Mind-blown? Us too.)
“I think it’d be awesome,” AJ reiterates, before calling out Justin directly. “So dude, let’s just talk about it!”
