    Steve Aoki has teamed up with the Backstreet Boys for his new single, “Let it Be Me.”

    On the radio-friendly dance pop track, the boyband harmonize over a catchy soundscape of keyboard chords, laid-back synths and a punchy bass. “If you’re gonna hurt someone, then let it be me / If you’re gonna break my heart, I’m ready to bleed / Even if it kills me, oh, I’m begging you, please / If you’re gonna hurt someone, then let it be me,” they sing on the chorus.

    Aoki previously linked up with K-pop boyband Monsta X on “Play it Cool” and dropped a remix of Jennifer Lopez’s “Medicine.” On the other hand, the Backstreet Boys released DNA earlier this year, their first full-length since 2013’s In a World Like This.
