Backstreet Boys vs. Nelly Furtado - Say the Meaning of Being Lonely

If you're like me, you've always wondered about how the 90's boy band craze would have sounded like if Timbaland was behind it. Well look no further! I mean, the Timbaland/Timberlake collaboration just isn't the same thing. (Please note that I'm generally sarcastic.) I liked how the mashup turned out. I did originally try to add Nelly's vocal (where I instead used Timbaland's yelps) -- like a duet of sorts, but in the end I didn't like how her vocal sounded with this. I guess the mashup might come across as being somber given the Backstreet Boys song, but I think the somberness works well with the sparseness of Nelly's instrumental in Say It Right.
