Backstreet Boys new video, “In A World Like This,” features marriage equality

Backstreet Boys premiered the video for their new single “In A World Like This” on Good Morning America today (July 18), and the visual deals with some surprising themes.

Mixed in with shots of the guys singing on a gorgeous Western vista are scenes of couples watching TV as three historic moments happen: the 1969 moon landing, 9/11 and the legalization of same-sex marriage.

“BSB wants to show our support for the LGBT community and we believe that two people of the same sex should have the right to get married,” A.J. McLean explained to GMA. “The concept of the video is based on the song, which tells a story of how love conquers all and ‘in a world like this’ that we live in, with all the craziness and negative energy that can go around, with real love you can overcome anything.”

Available July 30th.
