Kanye West and Mark Zuckerberg, Picture: Twitter

Kanye West sang a Backstreet Boys number with Mark Zuckerberg during a recent karaoke session.

The 'I Love It' rapper and the billionaire Facebook co-founder bonded over their love of the 90s icons by singing their 1999 hit 'I Want It That Way' on Wednesday.

The 41-year-old star shared a snap of the pair holding microphones on Twitter, and captioned it: "We sang Backstreet Boys I want it that way (sic)"

Kanye rubbing shoulders with Zuckerberg comes hours after his wife Kim Kardashian West - with whom he has North, five, Saint, two, and Chicago, nine months - revealed she has been "educating" her spouse about Donald Trump's politics, because he "doesn't know" about know much about his theories and attitudes. 

While the 'All Day' hitmaker has previously admitted he is keen to become President of the USA, his wife claims she has been helping him to learn about the Republican's policies, and says he gets "really misconstrued" when talking about Trump's ideas. 

She said: "I feel like he's very misunderstood and the worst communicator. But, when we talk about it, we have very similar politics. 

"He's very not political, actually, he just happens to like Donald Trump's personality, but doesn't know about the politics.

"So, I've educated him recently. I think it gets really misconstrued. He will always say he was friendly with him before, and he's the same person and friendly with him now."

The 38-year-old star's comments came just a month after Kanye vowed to take a step back from politics.

Prior to this, the 'Gold Digger' hitmaker admitted he would love to lead the US one day. 

He said: "I sit in clubs and I'm like, 'Wow, I've got five years before I go and run for office and I've got a lot of research to do, I've got a lot of growing up to do. 

"My dad has two master's degrees. My mom has a Ph.D. Rap is great. It's fun. It's fun to be a rock star, and I'll never not be one I guess, but there'll be a point where I become my mother's child."
