After debuting last week at #41*, the Backstreet Boys‘ “Chances” careen into this week’s Billboard Dance Club Singles’ #29* Power Pick position.
Reminiscent of James Blunt’s 2005 hit “You’re Beautiful” “Chances” explores the hope and heartbreak of two potential lovers’ paths briefly coinciding in a train station. Members of the Grammy-nominated man-band ask, “What’s a girl like you doing in a place like this?/On a quiet night, what are the odds?/What’s a guy like me doing in a place like this?/I could have just walked by, who would have thought?”
Initially remixed by London-based Kat Krazy, the song has gained significant club culture support through new renditions by Marc Stout & Scott Svedja. Both musical tacts use the original pop vocals as a palette from which they create special, tailor-made, dance floor editions.
The RCA Records-released recording is the latest in a list of singles that led up to the best-selling boy band of all time’s fresh new album, DNA – a collection that reflects the contributors maturity since their last release.
