Review: Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys charms on ’80’s Movie’ solo single (Includes first-hand account)

The song has a retro vibe to it, coupled with heartwarming lyrics and nostalgic references. He is able to paint a vivid picture in the minds of his listeners, and in return, they are bound to find it relevant and relatable.

“Then you came and saved me, baby, right on time, like an 80’s movie, with the classic lines, now we’re dirty dancing, all through the night, Oh, oh, oh, oh, like an 80’s movie, starring you and I,” he sings in the catchy chorus.

“80’s Movie” is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music.

Most recently, as Digital Journal reported, Nick Carter competed on The Masked Singer, and he expressed his gratitude about that experience.

The Verdict

Overall, Nick Carter delivers on his vivacious new single “80’s Movie.” His rich, rumbling voice is smooth as silk. It is worth checking out and it garners 4.5 out of 5 stars. It is evident that his solo music is just as remarkable as the hits he releases with the Backstreet Boys, and they both showcase different sides to his artistry in different stages of his life.
