Babymetal’s Collaboration Wishlist Includes a ’90s Boy Band
The members of Babymetal have already scored a number of name collaborations over the years, but they’re by no means shutting the door on possible future opportunities. In fact, in the latest issue of Metal Hammer, the band members shared their respective wishlist of collaborators and it includes a repeat collab, a pairing with one of metal’s greatest live bands, one of rock’s emerging stars and even a ’90s boy band.
That last one likely has you wondering, so Moametal reveals to Metal Hammer the specifics of how Backstreet Boys ended up on their wishlist. “Recently, I had the opportunity to speak to the Backstreet Boys and we spoke about how we would love to perform together. I think it would be so fun and interesting to go beyond genres and collaborate with them.” She goes on to add, “Also, I would love to collaborate with Måneskin. I was surprised to hear that they were actually younger than us, because I totally thought they were older than me. But us both being in the same generation, I feel so inspired and also motivated.”
