Steve Aoki + The Backstreet Boys Release Massive Collab ‘Let It Be Me’: Listen

Steve Aoki

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.

Reminiscent of James Blunt’s 2005 hit “You’re Beautiful” “Chances” explores the hope and heartbreak of two potential lovers’ paths briefly coinciding in a train station. Members of the Grammy-nominated man-band ask, “What’s a girl like you doing in a place like this?/On a quiet night, what are the odds?/What’s a guy like me doing in a place like this?/I could have just walked by, who would have thought?”

Fourteen people were injured Saturday at an Oklahoma casino when a storm knocked over trusses at the entrance of a Backstreet Boys concert.
