Dwayne Johnson and Khalid make an unexpectedly awesome duo.
Appearing on “Big Top 40” over the weekend, Khalid talked about the time he met Johnson and was completely starstruck.
“It’s crazy when you look up to someone, especially such as The Rock, and then you meet him, it’s like, What do you do? You spend all of your life preparing the sentences that you’re going to say and it’s none of that, none of that comes out,” Khalid said.
He then recalled their meeting, saying, “It was genuine and it was awesome. He gave me a lot of inspiration. I feel like he’s an amazing role model so it’s super cool to meet someone like The Rock.”
Seeing the interview on Twitter, Johnson responded, revealing that by “crazy fate” he had just listened to Khalid’s whole album just before they met.
Khalid agreed that it must indeed have been fate that brought them together.
Fans on Twitter freaked out over the exchange, with some even calling for a collaboration involving the singer and movie star.
