New Kids on the Block Background

The New Kids on the Block's origins date back to the early '80s when R&B/pop group, New Edition, was discovered by Maurice Starr. After ties were severed with them, Starr and his partner, Mary Alford, were on a quest to develop a white counterpart. Starr and Alford were instantly taken with 15-year-old Donnie Wahlberg's dancing ability, rapping skills and dynamic stage presence. He was enlisted as the group 's first member. Wahlberg helped the pair out with their recruitment efforts. Among the new members were his younger brother, Mark, and his best friend, Danny Wood. He also convinced a former schoolmate Jordan Knight to try out for Starr as well. Knight passed the audition with flying colors, and his older brother, Jonathan, was also folded into the group as well.The band enjoyed enormous success during the late '80s and early '90s and went on to sell 80 million records globally.

In April 1986, under the Columbia Records label, the group debuted their eponymous album. With songs almost exclusively penned and produced by Starr, the album contained what was coined as "bubblegum pop material." The lead-off single, "Be My Girl" garnered minimal airplay around the band's hometown of Boston but didn't grab national attention. The album's sophomore single, "Stop It Girl," did even worse. Eventually, however, the album went to earn triple platinum certification, largely rooted in the boost in popularity they secured with their sophomore album.

Their sophomore effort, Hangin' Tough, highlighted the single "Please Don't Go Girl," a ballad that made its way to No. 10 on the Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart and became New Kids on the Block's first hit. "You Got It (The Right Stuff)" was the album's second single to be released and landed in the Top 5, while the track "I'll Be Loving You (Forever)" settled in at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart. And, the hits kept coming. More Top 5 singles from the album followed, and by the close of 1989, Hangin' Tough had reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart and also had claimed platinum status eight times!

Step by Step arrived in 1990, which turned out to be another No. 1 album, earning triple platinum certification. The title track yielded the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 Singles chart and became their biggest-selling single. "Tonight" followed, claiming a spot in the Top 10. Also in 1990, the group took home two American Music Awards for Favorite Pop/Rock Band, Duo or Group and Favorite Pop/Rock Album.

In early 1992, "If You Go Away" dropped, scoring the No. 16 slot on the U.S. charts. Two years later, their fourth studio album was released called Face the Music. The album didn't do well, bombing as a commercial success.

The band split in 1994. There were several efforts made to get the group back together after their split, but it wasn't until 2007 that the band secretly reunited. They cut a new album and set off on a concert tour in 2008. The Block was issued in 2008, selling 100,000 copies in its first week of hitting the shelves. It netted the No. 1 spot on the U.S. Top Pop Albums chart and at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. "Summertime" served as the album's first official single. The song climbed to No. 35 on the Billboard Hot 100, and it was their first Top 40 hit since "If You Go Away" (1992).
