New Kids On The Block team with Boys II Men, Jordin Sparks, Naughty by Nature, and more for the new dance anthem “House Party,” which was created for the coronavirus relief efforts. The song will benefit No Kid Hungry, a charity campaign launched by officials at the Share Our Strength organization to provide assistance to those adversely affected by COVID-19.
“Stay inside now, we’re gonna turn the lights down. Don’t you wanna let your feelings go?” the group sings over the bridge, before continuing in the chorus: “Live our lives now, we’re gonna pump it real loud. Don’t say no, girl, here we go: House party!”
“I was inspired. People need to be entertained, to feel light, to be happy,” New Kids on the Block singer Donnie Wahlberg said of the song in a press release. “If we can do even the smallest thing to lift someone’s day we will do that. And in doing so, we will also donate all net proceeds to benefit No Kid Hungry. All we want to do is give back in the best way we know how.”
The song is supported by a quarantine-styled music video that features Donnie’s brother Mark Wahlberg, country singer Carrie Underwood, pop singer Nicole Scherzinger, Big Freeda, and more.
New Kids on the Block have also put a tour package up for auction to help with pandemic relief, with bidding open until 8 May. Fans can bid at: https://one.bidpal.net/nkotb/welcome.
