You probably already know this but be sure that if you do back exercises, to do abdominal and chest exercises. Together they balance the body out so you don't injure yourself. Overall fat loss will help with back boobs.
Burning fat is an all-body process, not a localized one, and unfortunately you can't target where you lose weight from. Energy is delivered to the muscles via the bloodstrean, NOT from being absorbed from surrounding fat stores. So while specific exercises for the back will build up the relevant muscles, they will do absolutely nothing about the overlying layer of fat.
What you can do is to continue to reduce your overall body fat through a combination of cardio, all-body strength training and watching your intake, and some of it will naturally come off the back.

You can't spot reduce areas of your body you don't like. It would be great if we could, but we can't. Weight loss is all about what you eat. Good nutrition is what takes the weight off and keeps it off. Exercise is what keeps our bodies fit and healthy. So, if you're trying to lose fat, you need to be mindful of what you eat first.
As for exercise, you want to do exercises that strengthen your entire "core", not just your back. Having strong core muscles will lift your chest and improve your posture. Having good posture will also help reduce back boobs. So, make sure you're doing exercises like push ups (modified is fine), dead lifts, bent over rows, shoulder presses, Superman, plank, side plank, etc. Don't be afraid to lift weights.
AND if you really want to get rid of the back boobs right now....
You need a better fitting bra if you have bra over hang. A properly fitted bra can get rid of those back boobs immediately.
