After 16 years with pop label Jive, the Backstreet Boys have parted ways with the company that made them famous and helped distribute their hits such as As Long As You Love Me, I Want It That Way and Larger Than Life.
In a statement released by the group the boys had this to say via their website:
So the news is out! The Backstreet Boys are no longer signed to long time record label Jive Records. The amicable split is very exciting for the group. "This is the best thing, at the best time that could have ever happened for us”, says Brian Littrell. “We are confident in the future of our band, and are looking forward to the new things to come. 2011 is going to be a great year for us!”
The boys have released 9 studio albums under Jive's management which includes their greatest hits compilations album which was released in 2001.
Personally I really don't care who the guys are signed with once they keep putting out music I'm happy.
