AJ McLean To Release Solo Album

For those who've been paying attention, it's been a long time coming, but it looks as if we'll finally see Backstreet Boy AJ McLean's debut solo album in 2010. The album is titled Have It All & the first single off it will be "Teenage Wildlife," which was written by none other than former *NSYNC member JC Chasez. The video for the single, which will be shot soon, is being choreographed by Wade Robson, who will be making his directorial debut with the clip. (To hear about the video's concept & more, watch the video above.) As for the rest of the album, one producer AJ has been working with is Ryan Tedder, who just so happened to work with BSB on their recently released album This Is Us. Read how AJ describes Have It All, which is set for release in the US this summer/fall, below:

"It's kind of a cross between a little bit of rock & funk & a little bit of dance. It's a well-rounded record. I'm really proud of it & I've been working on it for almost five years. It's going to be a great, great record."

Five years is quite a while, so I'll bet he's come up with some great stuff. In all honesty, AJ is my favorite Backstreet Boy because I just think he's the most talented one & the one whose voice sounds the most authentic, so, needless to say, I've been looking forward to this for some time. I wouldn't worry about the group either. They'll probably just market both of the albums simultaneously with their tour.
