Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean has released a new country single. His "Boy and a Man" lyrics bring together McLean's need for storytelling with his vocals.

The newly released studio recording shows his more vulnerable side, with the lyrics begging a special lady to give him a try. McLean chose the song to record based on the storytelling aspect of the "Boy and a Man" lyrics.

Rob Crosby and Dave Fenley co-wrote "Boy and a Man," which Jason Massey produced. The song features the Backstreet Boys singer singing with a country twang that his BSB vocals don't showcase.

McLean is currently finishing recording his debut solo album, Long Road. The project is intended for release this spring, but no official release date has been revealed.

AJ McLean's "Boy and a Man" Lyrics:

Baby I know that you're lookin' for Mr. Right / I ain't saying I'm him but I'm willing to give it an honest try / Maybe you could meet me in the middle and / Maybe you could give me just a little bit of time / And I'll show you that I want to hold you and make you mine / But I won't stop there, no, I won't

Chorus:
'Cause you deserve better than you've had before / Right now you've got a fellow standing at your door / I'll treat you like a lady, ain't just going to call you baby / Couple kisses and walk away / I ain't playing little games, I'm just trying to say / Girl, that I've got a plan / Cause I know what you're missing / Imma show you the difference between a boy and a man / Yeah, I know what you're missing / Imma show you the difference between a boy and a man / Yes I am

Baby I know you ain't looking for a hit and run / You need someone to hold when the nights getting cold, let me be the one / Ain't no rush we ain't got to hurry no / Take our time, 'cause you ain't got to worry / About me and believe that I got what you need and it meant something  / And I won't stop there, no, I won't

Repeat Chorus

And I won't stop there / No, I won't

You deserve better than you've had before / Right now you've got a fellow standing at your door / I'll treat you like a lady, ain't just going to call you baby / Couple kisses and walk away / I ain't playing little games, I'm just trying to say / Girl that I've got a plan / 'Cause I know what you're missing / Imma show you the difference between a boy and a man / Yeah, I know what you're missing / Imma show you the difference between a boy and a man / Yes I am

Oh... / Mmhmm... / Between a boy and a man.
