Elevate the album is the highly anticipated follow-up to the group’s debut, BTR, which entered the UK Official Charts at no. 14 last year. To date, Big Time Rush -- Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena and Logan Henderson -- have sold 3.5 million digital tracks worldwide.

Their first film, Big Time Movie for Nickelodeon, was watched by over 13 million viewers in its premiere weekend in the US and will be aired in the UK later this month. The boys, in a James Bond-inspired comedic adventure, sing selections from the Beatles catalogue in this fun movie set in London.
Big Time Rush’s social media profile is constantly growing, with an online community of over 2.8 million combined Twitter followers and more than 3.6 million Facebook fans.
The boys started filming the 3rd season of their hit show this week as Big Time Rush continues to follow four best friends from Minnesota who trade in their hockey sticks for music superstardom in Los Angeles.
