Canada’s Metro magazine spoke with Nick Carter, where the singer talked about the Backstreet Boys still going strong 15 years after their formation, despite the departure of Kevin Richardson. “It was a little difficult at first, but we were cool with it,” the 28-year-old said. “(Kevin) moved on and so have we. We’re comfortable with what we do as four and it’s still just as strong. Competitive spirit that’s just in every single one of us, and to be the best that we can be as a team, as a group and musically, we feel that what we stand for is honesty and purity in great music that people love.”
