Drake joins Backstreet Boys onstage for ‘I Want It That Way’

Oh dear God. Drake is back – in Toronto to perform with the Backstreet Boys.

On Saturday, the Canadian singer-rapper joined the boy band at a concert to perform “I Want It That Way,” which pleases audiences – a Backstreet Boys classic that holds a special place in his heart. Drake, who was born in Toronto, agreed to a surprise appearance on the group’s DNA world tour after meeting one of the Backstreet Boys “at a restaurant the other night”.

Before the song began, Drake took a moment to recall a middle school crush — his fire, his only desire, etc. — who approached him at his bar mitzvah and asked him to sing, “I Want It That Way.” ‘ to dance when he did it was 13.

“This girl I was in love with walked up to me while one of the biggest songs in the world was playing… and it was the first time I felt recognized. It was the first time I felt like I was cool,” Drake told the crowd.

“If she could see me now… Like I said, this is one of the greatest songs in music history. That’s why I’m on stage. I’ll try to sing along to it. It means “I want it this way”. Let’s go.”

For the next four minutes, Drake joined Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Howie Dorough as the honorable sixth Backstreet Boy. At one point, Dorough even inserted some lyrics from Drake’s 2013 hit “Hold On We’re Going Home” into the performance.

“I really did it,” the Grammy winner wrote on his Instagram Story, captioning a photo of himself on stage with the Backstreet Boys.

The epic collaboration comes two weeks after Drizzy unexpectedly released his seventh studio album Honestly, Nevermind. Some of the most popular tracks on the record include “Sticky”, “Massive” and “Jimmy Cooks” featuring rapper 21 Savage.
