Steve Aoki‘s touch knows no limits. The prolific producer who has worked with everyone from Adam Lambert to BTS and Daddy Yankee throughout his career expanded his genre-spanning repertoire further into the pop realm on Friday (September 6th) with his latest Backstreet Boys-featured creation, “Let It Be Me.”

The Ultra Records-released recording was born in Las Vegas after Aoki invited the group’s Nick Carter onstage during a set at Hakkassan to perform the Backstreet classic “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back.)” From there, the rest of the group joined the “Turbulence” producer in his home studio to create a plaintive pop jam about the enduring appeal of having the right person break your heart.

“Being able to work with these guys was so organic and effortless,” Aoki said in a statement. “Collaborating with a group that I’ve been listening to since I was a kid was such a memorable moment for me. This song has a beautiful message and relates to a lot of different people overcoming challenges when you love someone, and love always wins in the end. I’m really proud of this one and know it will touch a lot of people.” Listen to the new song below.

The Backstreet Boys are currently on a world tour in support of their 2019 RCA Records-released LP DNA, their first number one album on the Billboard Chart since 2000’s Black & Blue. Meanwhile Aoki – who released his memoir Blue: The Color of Noise earlier this week – has Las Vegas sets extending well into the fall.
