    Drake became the "sixth member" of the Backstreet Boys when he joined the band onstage to perform his favourite song

    The music star made a guest appearance at the boyband's show in Toronto, Canada on Saturday (02.07.22) to sing on their hit track 'I Want It That Way' - and Drake gave a moving speech to the audience telling them why the track means so much to him


    According to People.com, he said: "At 13 years old, I had a bar mitzvah, 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 would dance with her.

    "It was the first time I ever felt acknowledged, and it was the first time I ever felt like, you know, I had a shot at being cool."

    The star then joked: "If she can see me now, you know what I'm talking about?"

    The publication reports the band referred to Drake as their "sixth member" during the special one-off appearance together.

    Drake recently released his new album 'Honestly, Nevermind' to mixed reviews and he seemingly hit back at the criticism of the record by insisting haters "don't get it yet".

    The rapper's latest release debuted on June 17, but was hit with lacklustre reviews with some critics branding the album "dull".

    However, Drake appeared to have responded during a speech at a subsequent release party in Miami, Florida. According to Fox News, he

    said: "It's all good if you don't get it yet. That's what we do! We wait for you to catch up. We in here, though, we caught up already. On to the next. My goodness!" A clip of the moment circulated online showing Drake making the comments while the song 'Calling My Name' played in the background. It's believed to have been filmed during a bash at Miami nightclub Gala.
