"Let It Be Me", which dropped on Friday, September 6, came about after Steve and Nick Carter became unlikely friends in 2017, and the DJ invited the pop star to join him onstage at his show at Hakkasan in Las Vegas.
"Being able to work with these guys was so organic and effortless," Aoki says. "Collaborating with a group that I've been listening to since I was a kid was such a memorable moment for me. This song has a beautiful message and relates to a lot of different people overcoming challenges when you love someone, and love always wins in the end. I'm really proud of this one and know it will touch a lot of people."
