Bigger

Album: This Is Us (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the second single from American pop boy band Backstreet Boys' seventh studio album, This Is Us.
  • This track was co-written and produced by the group's original Svengali, Max Martin. AJ McLean explained to Digital Spy why they decided to re-team up with the Swedish hitmaker: "We met with him while we were touring the last record just to see if he was even interested. Obviously he's busy with Pink and Kelly Clarkson and people like that. He sent us a track called 'Bigger' and we loved it - it's like the new 'I Want It That Way'. He's one of the reasons why we've had the hits that we've had."
