Product Description

The brand new New Kids on the Block album was really sparked when Donnie Wahlberg was in New York for a costume fitting for the upcoming film Righteous Kill that finds him living out another life-long dream by acting in a film alongside two of his greatest heroes, Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino as well as 50 Cent. Finding himself around the block, Wahlberg visited the office of his longtime music lawyer who handed him a demo tape of a young singer-songwriter name Nazeree. Since the days of New Kids -- and his time producing hits in the early Nineties for his brother Mark as Markey Mark and The Funky Bunch -- Wahlberg has been handed a mountain of demos in his time and he took the offering with absolutely no expectations.

Putting the CD on while driving a few days later, Wahlberg heard two songs that spoke to him powerfully. "I got in the car in Boston on my birthday and I popped it in," he recalls." The first song was called "Click, Click, Click" and from the minute it started, it just grabbed me. I kept waiting for this kid to falter, but he never did. Not only that -- I immediately recognized that Joey McIntryre is going to love this record, Jordan Knight is going to love this record and I love this record. The music speaks to all of our sensibilities, but they're all totally different. It was hip-hop and honest enough for me. It was soulful enough for Jordan and pop and unselfish enough for Joe. It just had it all. I spent the next few hours driving up to girls at red lights and playing them the song. They said, `Is that your song?' I said `Not yet.'"
