Iconic ’90s group, Backstreet Boys have had a busy year with their DNA World Tour and multiple shows across North America, Asia, Europe, and Australia. Recently, during their Toronto show, they had a special guest that gave us the music collaboration of our dreams.

Yup, Drake, joined Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, and Howie Dorough to perform one of the group’s most iconic hits, ‘I Want It That Way’. Drake even shared a sweet memory of when he was 13 and a girl asked him to dance with her on this song, making him feel “cool” for the first time. “First time I ever felt acknowledged, it was the first time I ever felt, you know, like I had a shot at being cool. And like I said, the song that she wanted to dance with me to is one of the greatest songs of all time, one of the greatest songs I’ve ever heard,” the ‘Passionfruit’ singer shared.

The Backstreet Boys also took to Twitter, to share a video of the fans singing the hit song alongside the group and Drake with the caption, “What’s better than I Want It That Way? I Want It That Way f/ @drake.”

Last month, Drake unexpectedly dropped his seventh studio album, Honestly, Nevermind, taking fans worldwide by surprise. What’s more, the album hit the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart in just one week since its release. Anyone else looking forward to a Drake playlist to get through this dreary Monday?
