"More than That" is a song by American boy band Backstreet Boys. It was released on May 29, 2001 as the third single from their fourth studio album Black & Blue (2000). The song was written by Adam Anders and produced by Franciz and LePont.[1]

It reached number 27 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and ran for 20 weeks, and number 12 on the UK Singles Chart, ending their 13th consecutive Top 10 run, the last being "The Call" which peaked at number eight. It performed poorly compared to other singles of the Backstreet Boys, selling only 800,000 copies and failing to reach Top 10 in any of their main markets. However, it did very well on TRL, where the video was retired on August 17, 2001.

The song appeared the band's first compilation album The Hits – Chapter One.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "More Than that" was directed by Marcus Raboy in April 2001. The video features two sets of scenes: one in which the band sings in a desert hangar with a large movie screen behind them showing various scenes behind them, including a desert, a city with a busy traffic, a cloudy sky, lightning, and sunbreak. The other scenes feature the band both walking in the desert, as a group, and driving in two convertibles; one with AJ McLean as the driver and Nick Carter as the passenger and the other one driven by Brian Litrell with Howie Dorough on the passenger seat and Kevin Richardson at the back down a desert road. Helicopter shots were taken first time on a Backstreet Boys video while they were driving in the desert on the video. The footage on the large screen is also used in the video itself.

The video debuted at number one on TRL on May 15, 2001 and the Nickelodeon's Top 10 music.[3]
