Lol wut.

Ok, I haven’t had any coffee yet, so I’m not quite processing what the heck is happening.

New Kids On The Block just announced they’re embarking on The MixTape Tour which will feature Salt-N-Pepa, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson and Naughty by Nature, set for next year.

If this isn’t a San Antonio dream-come-true, I don’t know what is.

Anyway, the five iconic pop and hip-hop acts will hit the road together for the first time ever on a 53-city tour across North America next summer, with a stop at the ATT Center on Thursday, May 16.

To celebrate the event, NKOTB surprised fans by dropping a pretty epic, throwback track, “‘80s Baby” featuring their new touring partners, Salt-N-Pepa, Naughty By Nature, Debbie Gibson and Tiffany.

Check out the song below:
