Nick & Knight Studio Session: Watch 'One More Time' Performance & Interview
Watch the boy band veterans discuss their new collaboration and perform two new tracks.
After spending more than 20 years as members of Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block, respectively, Nick Carter and Jordan Knight have teamed up for a new collaborative project, Nick & Knight, that allows the longtime friends to show off their skills in a new light. The pop veterans stopped by the Billboard studios recently to show off the duets featured on their self-titled debut album — check out Nick & Knight’s performance of “One More Time” below:
Following the studio session, the guys sat down with Billboard to discuss their new album and the future of their long-in-the-works collaboration:
“There’s always been a chemistry between us,” says Jordan Knight, who met Carter years ago and bonded with the BSB member when the pair was part of the NKOTBSB tour and compilation album in 2011. “And when we performed together on stage, it just felt really natural. We kind of have the same style onstage, and the same approach to our singing and music. It was just always a natural fit.”
“We’re learning things from one another, which is really exciting,” adds Nick Carter.
Following its release earlier this month, Nick & Knight debuted at No. 24 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and the duo will kick off a tour in Nashville on Sept. 15. “We want to go onstage and we want to have fun with the crowd,” says Knight. “We’ve been doing it for a long time, and we want to surprise them as well. We’re gonna give the people what they want, basically.”
