Christmas is arriving early this year: Backstreet Boys have announced a brand new Christmas album!
A Very Backstreet Christmas will release on October 14, 2022, and what a fun release it will be, packed with special versions perfect for the holiday.
The album will be available digitally, as well as on CD and vinyl. Plus, a limited edition red vinyl which will be available on the Backstreet Boys website exclusively. But that’s not all! A Target exclusive version of the album is also set for release, featuring three exclusive bonus tracks. The tracks include classic ‘Feliz Navidad’ and ‘It’s Christmas Time Again.’
Apparently, this album has been in the making for 30 years! 30!
The album includes Christmas classics that we can’t wait to hear the band take on with their flawless harmonies like ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas,’ ‘The Christmas Song,’ and ‘This Christmas.’ And three original Christmas songs, which are sure to be modern classics. We can’t wait to hear what ‘Christmas in New York,’ ‘Together,’ and ‘Happy Days’ sound like!

There’s nothing better than boy band and girl group holiday albums, like NSYNC’s Home for Christmas, and Desntiny’s Child’s 8 Days of Christmas, to name a few! And you best believe, Christmas or not, we absolutely keep them in rotation all year long! And now BSB are joining the ranks! For all of you who are wishing for chillier temperatures and the coziness of the holidays, join us in jamming to some other merry faves as we mentally prepare ourselves for BSB’s album!
Home for Christmas By NSYNC
We have to kick this off with a banger –– the ultimate boy band Christmas album (so far). NSYNC’s Christmas album has been occupying our hearts since the early 00s and we aren’t complaining. Whether you were an NSYNC stan or a Backstreet stan back in the day, you have to admit, this album slaps.
Fave track: ‘Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays’
Underrated track: ‘O Holy Night – A Cappella’
8 Days of Christmas By Destiny’s Child
Our fave trio released a Christmas album in 2001 and it’s still a holiday staple to this day. “Eighth day of Christmas my baby gave to me a pair of Chloe shades and a diamond belly ring,” if those lyrics don’t scream iconic, we don’t know what does.
Fave track: ‘8 Days of Christmas’
Underrated track: ‘Platinum Bells’
Christmas EveL By Stray Kids
Technically this isn’t a full album, but it counts! Trust us. The Kids released this banger of an EP in 2021, and it instantly became a classic in our Christmas playlists. It has that SKZ twist complete with gorgeous vocals and beats that make you wanna dance.
Fave track: ’24 to 25′ (Seriously, the cutest Christmas song ever!)
Underrated track: ‘Winter Falls’
A Cheetah-licious Christmas By The Cheetah Girls
Who doesn’t love The Cheetah Girls?! This Christmas album is bubblegum pop perfection and we ate it up like toasted marshmallow fluff. With a balance of classic covers and original cheetah-licious music bursting with empowerment, this album is full of holiday bops.
Fave track: ‘Cheetah-licious Christmas’
Underrated track: ‘A Marshmallow World’
Santa Hooked Me Up By B2K
We will literally never get sick of 2000s boy bands and B2K is no exception. They brought their signature flavor and a fresh mix of original Christmas songs to the holidays. Plus, their take on ‘Jingle Bells’ will forever be iconic.
Fave track: ‘Jingle Bells’
Underrated track: ‘Why’d You Leave Me On Christmas’
We Need Christmas By Maddie & Tae
Lastly, if you want a little country flair on your Christmas music, our girls Maddie & Tae brought it with their 2020 EP. This collection is pretty, joyful, and chill. We love throwing this on for a calm holiday season morning or a baking sesh. Plus, you can always count on Maddie & Tae for tight, flawless harmonies that are candy for your ears.
Fave track: ‘We Need Christmas’
Underrated track: ‘Merry Married Christmas’
