Dorough & the Backstreet Boys Return to the Billboard Hot 100 with Their Florida Georgia Line Collaboration “God, Your Mama, And Me”

It’s the end of a decade-long drought for Howie Dorough

The 42-year-old half-Puerto Rican singer and his fellow Backstreet Boys band mates have returned to the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the first time since 2007, as Florida Georgia Line‘s “God, Your Mama, And Me,” featuring the boy band, debuts at No. 92 on the chart (dated March 18).

Backstreet Boys

The Backstreet Boys had last appeared on the Hot 100 with “Inconsolable,” which reached No. 86 in September 2007.

The new collaboration is BSB‘s 17th Hot 100 hit (and first in a featured role). The group has tallied six top 10s, led by its highest-charting, No. 2-peaking 1997 breakthrough smash “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart).”

On the Hot Country Songs chart, “God, Your Mama, And Me” enters the top 20 (21-16) as the top Streaming Gainer, following the February 20 arrival of its official video, which stars both FGL and BSB. The song enters Country Streaming Songs at No. 15, up 31 percent to 2.8 million U.S. streams in the week ending March 2, according to Nielsen Music. It also pushes 6-5 on Country Digital Song Sales (20,000 downloads sold, up 27 percent) and 34-31 on Country Airplay (6.5 million in audience, up 14 percent).

Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley remembers seeing Backstreet Boys in concert in 1998. “It was nuts,” he recently told Billboard. “People were just screaming, hooting and hollering all around.”

“To have the Backstreet Boys featured on [“God”] was something we kind of envisioned in the studio while recording it,” the duo’s Tyler Hubbard added. “To have that come to fruition was amazing. It really, really took that song to the next level.”

Said Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson, “I’m a father of two boys, so I like how the song could have a double meaning. You could be talking about your children, or your spouse, or your love interest. I think it’s poetic, and it’s got a great melody.”
