NKOTB And Friends Give Us The Perfect Quarantine Anthem
Going Old School with the New Kids all for a good cause! The New Kids On The Block took to YouTube this week, to premiere their latest collaboration "House Party". The boys joined forces with some famous friends, fellow boy-banders Boyz II Men and Naughty By Nature and got some help from Big Freedia and Jordin Sparks, to record the song--which was all done on the artists' cell phones.
According to a CNN article, the song also serves as a way to raise money for a great cause. "The best part -- it's for a good cause. All proceeds of the song go to No Kid Hungry."
Billboard.com says the video features a ton of fun cameos. "The feel good ray of sunshine features vocals from Boyz II Men, Big Freedia, Jordin Sparks and Naughty By Nature, who all Zoom into the visual for the track, which also has cameos from Carrie Underwood, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Derek Hough, Kid 'N Play and Mark Wahlberg."
But the band is not stopping there. "NKOTB are also auctioning a dream tour package to benefit No Kid Hungry that includes two tour stops and puts the winner on the tour bus for one night with the band. The winning bidder will also receive two tickets to a future NKOTB tour, hotel accommodations, round-trip air for two, a merch bundle and access to the tour meet and greets with NKOTB; bidding s open now through May 8 at 9 p.m. EST"
Donnie Wahlberg said they wrote the song to reflect what a lot of us are thinking and how we're feeling about being home. But they also encourage folks not to lose hope, and to make the best of the situation.
