"Let It Be Me": BSB Drops New Collab With Steve Aoki

The Backstreet Boys are coming in hot with a new song just in time for the weekend! 

It’s no secret that Nick and the rest of the band hung out with famed musician, DJ, producer and EDM extraordinaire Steve Aoki a few times during their Vegas residency, leaving many people to wonder if a collab would be imminent. 

And now, we finally have an answer. “Let It Be Me”, the Backstreet Boys second official collaboration in their 26 year history, has finally dropped and it was definitely worth the wait. 

"Being able to work with these guys was so organic and effortless. Collaborating with a group that I’ve been listening to since I was a kid was such a memorable moment for me," Aoki told Entertainment Tonight. "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."

Over the weekend, it was revealed on a live stream with Nick and Steve Aoki that this song was recorded while the Backstreet Boys were mid-Vegas residency, after Aoki invited Carter to hang out with him during his own show. The crowd singing along to "Everybody" inspired the EDM artist to collab with the group that he's long been a fan of. It seems that the feeling is mutual.

With just under two weeks left on the North American leg on the Backstreet Boys DNA tour, this is the perfect treat for fans and a definite reminder that the Boys are not only here to stay, but continuing to reinvent themselves. Be sure to stream, purchase / download, and share the new song with your friends on social media using the hashtag #LetItBeMe!

    My favorite part about the music video? The transition between black and white to colored because of the story-telling. Most especially the ending with Nick's pose <3 :o)

    I can understand why they didn't put it in the DNA album. Maybe because the overall music theme with the DNA record is more on love, dance, the voice blending of the boys and all that ----- with Let It Be Me, it ventured to a different ball game. Like what was talked about earlier, it had a different meaning.

    It would be cool to hear it in their repertoire, if ever.

    Thumbs up!

    Only got to hear the snippet of it and love the beat. Expected a different meaning to the song, lyrics-wise because of the title as it became more of a twist but still thumbs up. Unable to download because I don't have those platforms, don't ask it's a headache. LOL But to hear a little bit of it is more than enough to say that I hope it becomes the new wave with the kind of beat it has. Keep being in the mainstream because you, the Backstreet Boys and with the collab with Steve Aoki --- the dream team!
