Backstreets Back (again).
Society is continuing to hit peak ’90s nostalgia, with news that the one-time biggest boyband in the world is returning to reclaim their throne.
We know this because “the sensitive one” Brian Littrell told us so via Instagram:
FYI: FGL refers to an American country music duo called Florida Georgia Line, which should make for an – uh -interesting collab? We’re thinking something like I Want It That Way meets Steps’ 5,6,7,8?
Anyhoo, news of the fab five’s fresh record comes at a time when the lads are already courting a resurgence.
In case you haven’t been following their career trajectory since Year 4 (and if so, you’re clearly not a true fan), they actually released an album in 2013 called In A World Like This, and have since chased it up with an Australian tour, not to mention several high profile performances including a bonafide Las Vegas residency.
And speaking of *NSYNC, at the same time as news of Backstreet Boys’ forthcoming album has reached our earholes, Joey Fatone has just announced plans to open up a hot dog stand at the Florida Mall in Orlando called Fat One’s Hot Dogs & Italian Ice.
yes this is happening,in the works for a bit and it's opening up in August in the Florida mall ,if your out here! pic.twitter.com/On0W1eCBtm

Which one of the now almost 40-year-old poppers’ new ventures will be the most cheesy?
Only time will tell.
In the meantime, when the f*ck is a 5ive reunion happening?!?
Da funk isn’t gonna slam dunk itself.
