What do you get when you put together a pair of boy-band men who have grown up and out of their boy-band heydays? Nick Carter and Jordan Knight, of Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block, respectively, are here to give you an answer and pave a career path that turns away from the boy-band distinction without abandoning it entirely. Both members of Nick & Knight still consider themselves a part of the still-touring groups that brought them international recognition as teens, but that hasn’t stopped them from pursuing solo careers in adulthood. Now, after a collaborative album and tour, the two seem to have found the right stuff when it comes to working as a pair. Together, they’ve made a sexy ’90s r&b album and are peddling their act around the country to fans who still find these dudes larger than life.
