The Backstreet Boys and Steve Aoki are teaming up for an emotional new single titled Let It Be Me.
Premiering exclusively with PEOPLE, the love song comes two years after the DJ first met Nick Carter in Las Vegas, where the singer hopped on stage to perform with Aoki, 41.
“Our collaboration with Steve came about in a very organic way. We had the opportunity to spend some time with Steve at his house really getting to know each other, and the song developed naturally from there,” the band tells PEOPLE in a statement.
“The message behind it is one we think everyone can relate to. It’s about working through any challenges that life brings to be with the person you love,” continues the statement. “And the importance of that message is something we really tried to show with the music video by having real couples tell their stories.”
