More than a month after releasing their new single "Remix (I Like The)", '80s breakthrough boyband New Kids On The Block drops the visuals to their comeback track. The said track is the first single off their forthcoming "10" album, set to be released in April.
The up-tempo track, being about a nerdy chick who turns into a bombshell, has the men of NKOTB tapping the services of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" actress Artemis Pebdani for the lead role in the four-minute-plus clip as "The Lonely Wallflower". As the group's new song begins to play, so does Pebdani start to transform from wallflower to a party girl.
As she walks out of the restroom and into the living room filled with stunned guests, the video also begins to show Donnie Wahlberg, siblings Jordan Knight and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, and Danny Wood, all looking ever so dapper in their navy suits. Although the new track sounds more adult contemporary in comparison to the classic hits from NKOTB's teeny-bopper days back in the '80s and early '90s, the setting and choreography bring the memories of old NKOTB videos back to life.
As Pebdani seems to be entranced by the quintet's new tune and gets the other party guests jumping in the pool with her, she moves to the stage where the guys are performing and also manages to get Wahlberg to take his blazer off and share a dance with her.
NKOTB is expected to cast the same spell and drive all their longtime fans and new admirers to rock with them when they finally kick off their forthcoming 28-city "Package Tour" with Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees on May 31 in Uncasville, Connecticut.
