Music sample
A sample from "Shape of My Heart" by Backstreet Boys

"Shape of My Heart" is a song by American pop band Backstreet Boys from their fourth studio album, Black & Blue. The song was released as the album's lead single in October 3, 2000.[1] It was written and produced by Max Martin and Rami Yacoub, and co-written by Lisa Miskovsky. The song debuted at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, while reaching number-one on the Billboard Top 40 Mainstream chart.[2]

On MTV's Total Request Live the music video broke the Backstreet Boys' own record for longest running number-one song, which was previously held by "Larger Than Life" (1999). The video spent 61 days at the top position. The song also earned a Grammy Award nomination during the 44th Grammy Awards for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. This was featured on the 2001 compilation album "Now That's What I Call Music! 6 (U.S. series)".

On the 2000s "Around the World in 100 Hours" Black & Blue promo trip, Backstreet Boys sang an a cappella version of the song every continent they landed on. In 2008, one of the song's writers, Lisa Miskovsky, released her own version of the song, "Another Shape of My Heart" on her 2008 album Last Year's Songs: Greatest Hits.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Shape of My Heart" was directed by Matthew Rolston from October 1 to October 2, 2000 at the Roberts Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. The entire video is shot in monochrome with a blue tint, creating a black and blue look (hence the album's name).

The video shows the Backstreet Boys rehearsing lines onstage in an empty theater. Another set of scenes shows a man and a woman rehearsing on the stage while another man and woman watch from a desk in front of the audience in which the band sits. The characters from these scenes also feature in the scenes with the band rehearsing.
