NEW MUSIC: BIG TIME RUSH | CALL IT LIKE I SEE IT
The boy band comprised of four of the 2010s' biggest teen heartthrobs; Big Time Rush is officially back with their brand new single “Call It Like I See It." The band, which consists of members Kendall Schmidt, 31, James Maslow, 31, Logan Henderson, 32, and Carlos PenaVega, 32, dates back to 2009 with the debut of their Nickelodeon show "Big Time Rush," where they played characters in a teenage band. Thanks to the show's success, the group then went on to release three albums, which included the hits we all know and love such as "Worldwide" and "Boyfriend" — and performed across the globe. In 2013, the band decided to go their separate ways but notably remained close friends through the years. Fast forward to March of this year, all four seasons of the show were added to Netflix and the band's fanbase felt the rush reviving once again. In an interview, the pop group opened up about what it was like getting back into the studio together nearly a decade after their 2013 breakup. “We definitely had some rough patches, had some issues kind of finding our sound and knowing the vision for the music. But the best part was whenever we all came together, and we just went in with open hearts, open minds about the music and a little bit of tequila,” Henderson quipped. After first reuniting via Zoom during the pandemic in June 2020, Big Time Rush announced a pair of reunion shows in New York and Chicago last July. The boy band’s last proper studio release was their third album "24/Seven," which bowed at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 in 2013.
