The Backstreet Boys’ hit song “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” has landed on Billboard Magazine’s Top 100 songs of 2018!
The Grammy-nominated song, which was released in May and was the first single from their upcoming album, “DNA” (out January 25, 2019), was a radio staple this summer.
According to Billboard:
56. Backstreet Boys, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”
The Backstreet Boys’ 2018 chart comeback is one of the year’s most unexpected — and welcome — surprises. And while this midtempo plea to a lover is a throwback, it’s not to the ’90s: It goes back even further to draw on the atmospheric fist-pumpers of the ’80s, with twinkling synths and an insistent, thudding beat that complements their still-immaculate harmonies and that delicious, impossible-to-sing-along-to falsetto. — J.

In addition to Billboard’s top charts, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” came in at No. 19 on the Year-End Adult Contemporary charts and No. 28 on the Adult Pop Songs year-end chart.
The song peaked at No. 63 this summer on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
