While I was never a huge “New kids on the Block” fan I did know who they were and listen to them every now and then when I was in junior high back in the late 80′s and early 90′s. Now apparently they’re all back, Jordan Knight,Jonathan Knight,Joey McIntyre,Danny Wood,and Donnie Wahlberg with a new reunion album of sorts. I was listening to them perform live at the 2008 American Music Awards tonight and heard one of their new songs called “Single”. I was whoa ! Wait a minute,that sounds kinda good.

They got R&B recording artist,Ne-Yo to join them on the track and it’s got a nice little hip hop feel to it. Also I don’t care what anybody says – the “New Kids” have some good vocals to go along with this track.Their new album is called,”The Block” which was released about 2 1/2 months ago on September 2,2008,and is their 5th studio album. “Single” is the second release from the album. The video is cool also. It shows them chillin in a club singin. The video was shot at the “Jet” night club in Vegas and the song is just a real smooth track with a real good chorus. Check out the video below.
