Lil Uzi Vert has thrown a curveball to listeners on his new song “That Way.” The enigmatic artist reaches back to the glory days of the Backstreet Boys, turning the boy band’s hit single “I Want It That Way” into a hook for his latest work.
Uzi still has fans waiting on his long-delayed Eternal Atake album, but his Backstreet Boys interpolation might provide some hope of the LP seeing the light of day this year. “That Way” is the follow-up to the “Futsal Shuffle 2020” single, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in December.
