Backstreet Boys' Net Worth Is $200 Million
Started in 1993, the Backstreet Boys formed within Orlando, Florida. Consisting of a group of American guys, the band quickly rose to fame with their self-titled debut album in 1996. The band included the members Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and Kevin Richardson. They followed up their debut album with the second album, “Backstreets Back” in 1997. They also released the albums “Millennium” in 1999 and “Black & Blue” in 2000. This pop group has an estimated net worth of $200 million.
Unlike many bands, the Backstreet Boys was organized by Lou Pearlman. He encouraged the band to play at malls, colleges and parties for over a year. After a year of touring small venues, they were signed on with Jive/Zomba Records. Following this early start, they released several songs in Europe and Canada. This helped them to get extra momentum prior to their first album release. Once the debut album hit the markets, it immediately became a hit. The Backstreet Boys were an overnight sensation that managed to stay at the top of the music charts for several years.
After several years of success, several band members began to suffer from substance abuse and they encountered management issues. This led to the end of the Backstreet Boys. Fortunately for fans, the band was reunited multiple times. After their reunion, they went on tour and released a total of six more albums. Their most recent album was “In a World Like this” in 2013. Altogether, the band has sold more than 130 million records. As a boy band, they hold the record for selling the most records. In addition, all of their first nine albums had songs that reached the top ten on the Billboard Charts. Due to their music and notoriety, the band was granted a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
