Drake joins the Backstreet Boys for ‘I Want It That Way’ live in Toronto

Drake joined the Backstreet Boys on tour in Toronto for a surprise performance of the group’s famous single, “I Want It That Way”.

The pop group, consisting of Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean, Brian Littrell and Howie Dorough, are currently touring North America and Europe for their DNA World Tour.

Upcoming shows include performances in New York, Ohio, Virginia and California before returning to Canada in August.

Concert-goers wowed as the rapper “God’s Plan” performed “one of the greatest songs of all time” with his creators at the show at the Budweiser Center in Toronto on Saturday, July 2nd.

The Backstreet Boys welcomed their “sixth member” Drake on stage on Saturday for a live rendition of the 1999 song, which remains ingrained in pop culture to this day – despite its confusing chorus.

Drake, who was born and raised in Toronto, shared his own recollection of “I Want It That Way,” telling the audience that it was “the first time I felt like I was cool.”

“I had a bar mitzvah when I was 13… and at my bar mitzvah for the first time in my life, this girl I was in love with came up to me while one of the greatest songs in the world was playing and she asked me if I’d dance with her,” Drake said, adding, “It was the first time I felt recognized and it was the first time I felt like I had a chance to be cool. “

While the group sang “I Want It That Way” together, Drake incorporated his own song “Hold On We’re Going Home” into the live rendition.

The Backstreet Boys tweeted a video clip of the performance with the caption, “What’s better than ‘I want it this way?’

“‘I want it that way’ with Drake.”

Drake has released his seventh studio album Honestly forget it last month after 2021 certified lover boy, which was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 2022 Grammy Awards.
