Let's Go Higher

Album: Unfinished (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This the first single released from Unfinished, which is the fourth solo album by the New Kids on The Block lead singer Jordan Knight. The song was written by Colby O'Donis, who is best known for his hit single, "What You Got" and for his work on the breakthrough Lady Gaga track "Just Dance."
  • Knight told Billboard magazine that he was thrilled to return to his up-tempo pop roots on this song. Said the veteran heartthrob: "There's this idea that when you turn 40, you automatically go to adult contemporary heaven, but I want to try and challenge that. My heart has always been in more up-tempo music you can dance to."
  • The song's music video sees Jordan dancing in a club and pursuing a girl. "This video is all about getting caught up in the music," he told AOL. "Letting the beat and melody elevate you into a euphoric state. That feeling you get when you forget about all your problems and headaches and you just let go."
