"Shape of My Heart" is a song by American boy band, Backstreet Boys, it was written and produced by Max Martin and Rami, and co-written by Lisa Miskovsky. It was released on October 3, 2000 as the lead single from the band's fourth studio album, Black & Blue (2000).[1] It debuted at number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, while reaching number 8 on the US Mainstream Top 40 chart.[2] It also topped the charts in Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and Switzerland as well as the top 10 in several other countries.

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.

On the 2000s "Around the World in 100 Hours" Black & Blue promo trip, Backstreet Boys sang an a cappella version of the song in 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.

Composition[edit]

The song is performed in D major with a key switch to E major at the third chorus.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Shape of My Heart" was directed by Matthew Rolston at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. The entire video is shot in monochrome with a blue tint, creating a black and blue look (a reference to the album's name).[3]

The video shows the Backstreet Boys rehearsing lines onstage in an empty theater. Another set of scenes shows a man and a woman (Sara Foster) 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.[4]
