Take That has a long history and vast success as a boy band, but has produced perhaps its first adult ballad of note in ‘Rule the World’. Take That’s history is much akin to that of their US counterpart N’Sync, with great success in dance tracks during the 90’s and with the UK’s Robbie Williams mirroring the success of Justin Timberlake’s solo career as the first stage of the boy band wound down. The four remaining members of Take That produced the track ‘Rule the World’ for the movie Startdust, and the song took on life of its own as a single and music video (featuring clips from the movie). The track doesn’t appear on their current album ‘Beautiful World’ but is supposed to be included in a Deluxe Edition release of the album later this year.

The band is on tour in the UK during the next month,
