Backstreet Boys Explain ‘I Want It That Way’ To Chrissy Teigen



Chrissy Teigen learns the meaning behind Backstreet Boys' song "I Want It That Way." The track was released by the American boy band 19 years ago.

On June 1, Teigen posted a series of tweets about the song and asked her fans what could "I Want It That Way" mean.

"It seems they both want it the same way but are fighting over who gets to say they want it that way," wrote Teigen.

Backstreet Boys Responds To Chrissy Teigen

A few hours later, John Legend's wife received a response from the members of the group. However, the explanation did not make much sense either, according to Billboard.

"I Want It That Way" is included in Backstreet Boys' 1999 album Millennium. The other tracks in the compilation are "Larger Than Life," "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely," "It's Gotta Be You," "I Need You Tonight," "Don't Want You Back," "Don't Wanna Lose You Now," "The One," "Back to Your Heart," "Spanish Eyes," "No One Else Comes Close," and "The Perfect Fan."

Howie Dorough Talks About 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart'

In related news, Backstreet Boys also made headlines last month after dropping "Don't Go Breaking My Heart." The track serves as the group's first release in five years. Following the release of the band's no. 1 single, Howie Dorough talked about the track.

He said that Backstreet Boys always see to it that songs are up to date but reflective of the band's signature sound. The musician also said that they will never release anything that would not sound entirely from them.

Backstreet Boys Almost Recorded 'Wait'

Prior to the release of "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," Backstreet Boys listened to and potentially recorded the song called "Wait." However, Maroon 5's Adam Levine expressed his desire to sing the track.

Stuart Crichton, a Scottish producer, who is based in Los Angeles, presented the boy band with a second song. The members recorded it, but the product did not appeal to them as much as they initially expected.

The third song pitched to them was "Don't Go Breaking My Heart."

"There's that feeling that you just go, 'This is undeniable. A smash.' This one had that feeling. I remember hearing the tracking and going, 'Wow, this song has such a cool, unique sense of throwback.' To me it sounded like something different, very fresh, not following something that's already on the radio," explained Dorough.
