The ’90s are officially back: Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys have surprised fans with a new collaboration, “Matches.”

The iconic boyband open the dance pop track with a sultry verse: “I taste you in the air, your
energy everywhere, uh-huh / It’s borderline unfair / You know, I can see your brain, it’s screamin’ my name, oh.”

Meanwhile, the pop star handles the song’s infectious chorus. “Like playing with matches, matches, matches / This might leave some damage, damage, damage / Thе good kind of damage, damage, damage / Likе playing with matches, matches, matches,” she sings.
