Last night, Kanye West posted a photo to Twitter of he and Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg singing karaoke together. Their song of choice was reportedly Backstreet Boys’ 1999 hit single “I Want It That Way.”

With no accompanying video, the world will be left to wonder what magic was created in combining Ye and Zuck, but the two certainly look like they are enjoying themselves in the picture.

People on Twitter quickly requested audio proof of the encounter, with some joking that it would show up as a bonus track on West’s next album.


New York Times editor Will Staley responded to the photo, aptly noting that “About three years ago, give or take, everyone on here would have thought this was insanely cool.” Indeed West and Zuckerberg, long seen as progressive celebrities, have recently divided the internet as two media gatekeepers who indirectly ushered in the era of President Donald Trump.


“I never thought Kanye West and Mark Zuckerberg would have so much in common with my Saturday nights at La Sing,” @emilyolle joked.

It seems a bit rude that West chose to share the photo to Twitter when he had another social media platform—you know, Facebook—available. Maybe this is his way of getting back at Zuckerberg for not investing that $1 billion in his ideas.
