The polished, up-tempo pop song finds members from both groups splitting vocal duties on the verses. Joey McIntyre, AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Jordan Knight and Nick Carter take turns singing about a troubled relationship they're not ready to give up on.
The full group harmonizes on the catchy chorus: "Don't turn out the lights now, lights now, lights now / Cause in a minute, we'll be feeling like never before / We'll light up the night now, night now, night now / I'll be whatever you need and more."
With the song's appealing hook and the attention the NKOTBSB team-up is getting from the media and fans, it wouldn't be surprise if 'Don't Turn Out the Lights' becomes a hit on the pop charts. The Backstreet Boys last reached the Top 40 six years ago with 'Incomplete,' while New Kids charted with their 2008 comeback hit 'Summertime.'
