Nick Carter & Jordan Knight Share Musical Memories 29Jul
2014

Songza plays you the perfect music at the right moment; here, we ask interesting people about the perfect song for a moment in their life. Today we interview Nick Carter and Jordan Knight.

Songza: What’s your favorite song to cover live?

Nick Carter: My favorite song to cover Lenny Kravitz’s “Fly Away.” It’s just so cool to play on my electric guitar and everyone loves to sing along.

Name a song, new or old, that takes you to your happy place.

“Horse with No Name” by America makes me feel so happy whenever I listen to it. I never get tired of it.

What was the first tape/CD/vinyl you bought?

The first cd I bought was Journey’s album Frontiers. I remember riding my bicycle to this used CD store. At the time I could only afford used things when I was around ten. I felt so adventurous all by myself browsing through the CDs and vinyls. When I saw the album cover with the alien head I was in love. I took that CD home and played it until it scratched.

Fuse Review of One More Time 15Jul
2014

Nick Carter and Jordan Knight Drop First Nick & Knight Track, “One More Time”

Loyal boy band fans, this is the single for you! They must’ve really hit it off while touring together back in 2011 and 2012, because Nick Carter (of Backstreet Boys fame) and Jordan Knight (New Kids On The Block heartthrob) have teamed up for a “sexy” new collaboration, Nick & Knight, which has the two pop princes taking on high notes and sugary hooks in tandem.

The first single has dropped from their musical partnership, and “One More Time” features the infectious chorus you were expecting from these boy band vets—but there’s more to it. The “woo hoo”-es, high notes and heavy hand on the percussion give it a rockier edge than the pop they’re used to crooning. It almost sounds like “One More Time” was swiped from Adam Levine’s secret iPod of demos, right down to the phrasing.

We’re not saying they did that, of course, but “One More Time” definitely embraces the pop/rock line that Maroon 5 walks more than the tracks formerly tread by NKOTB and BSB. We’re stoked to watch Nick & Knight take off, and if “One More Time” is any indication, it’s that we’ll be hearing a lot of sounds we weren’t necessarily expecting.

Billboard Reviews One More Time 15Jul
2014

Nick Carter & Jordan Knight’s Debut Single ‘One More Time’ Is A Funky Ray of Sunshine

The Backstreet Boy and the New Kid on the Block go Maroon 5 on their sprightly first offering.

Naysayers be damned—boy band lightning can strike twice. “One More Time,” the first offering from Nick Carter and Jordan Knight’s side project Nick & Knight, is a straight-up summer pop jam, one that proves the Backstreet Boys singer and the New Kids on the Block vocalist have a true creative rapport.

With a sprightly lite-funk guitar riff, immaculate production and a sea of delicious “woo-hoo” falsettos, “One More Time” is less boy band and more Maroon 5. So if you dig the Adam Levine brand of vaguely funky adult pop, you might find yourself giving “One More Time” multiple spins.

Nick & Knight will drop their self-titled debut album on September 2, which Carter described as “a bunch of our pop, rock, R&B and urban.” The duo hit the road for a massive tour on September 15.
