Music sample
A sample from "More than That" by Backstreet Boys

"More than That" is the third single by the Backstreet Boys from their album Black & Blue. It was released in May 2001.[1] It reached #27 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and ran for 20 weeks, and #12 on the UK Singles Chart, ending their 13th consecutive Top 10 run, the last being "The Call" which peaked at #8. 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. A remix was made for radio play, as well as the music video. The main difference between the versions is an alternate percussion track, and generally remixed levels. This song was featured on the 2001 compilation album Now That's What I Call Music! 8.

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: a desert, a city with a busy traffic, a cloudy sky, lightning, and at last, sunbreak. The other scenes feature the band both walking in the desert, as a group, and driving in two convertibles 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. This The footage on the large screen is also used in the video itself. The video debuted at Number 1 on TRL on May 15, 2001. [1]
