It’s not quite the end of 2018 yet but we’re already willing to award the most unexpected musical duo for this year to the latest pair that have announced they are collaborating on new music, Keith Urban and Post Malone!
That’s right, Keith and Posty have announced that they have been working on some tunes together and we honestly need a minute just to let that sink in and to imagine what on earth this will sound like.
Keith Urban And Post Malone Are Collaborating On New Music
The country singer was speaking with E! News at Spotify’s 2nd Annual Secret Genius Awards when he discussed his upcoming work with the American rapper.
“I love Post,” said Keith. “We collaborated on a song for this Elvis [Presley] special that’s going to be coming out in January.”
So it looks like we’ll be waiting a few months before we get to listen to the country/hip hop fusion that these two have put onto one of the King of Rock n Roll’s classic songs (that’s a mouthful of musical genres if ever we heard one).
But no matter whether the song is a smash or not, we’re definitely vibing the friendship that has formed between these two unlikely chums.
During the interview, Urban had nothing but kind words to say about posty.
“He’s the real deal,” he gushed. “He’s so eclectic, so steeped in all kinds of music. I love him.”
Apart from working on something together, Keith Urban and Post Malone have both been pretty busy working on their solo achievements.
Malone recently teamed up with Crocs to design his own line called the Post Malone x Crocs Dimitri Clog, which feature his signature logo and other Kibbutz charms that match his many tattoos.
“I wear Crocs everywhere from the bar to the stage and I felt it was the perfect collaboration to get together with Crocs and give the fans what they’ve been asking for,” said Posty in a statement.
These shoes sold out in minutes as soon as they were released.
Urban is also coming off the back of some major wins at the 2018 Country Music Awards. This year he was awarded the 2018 Entertainer of the Year award and during his acceptance speech he tearfully thanked his family and wife Nicole Kidman for their support.
“Baby girl, I love you so much, thank you. I’m shocked beyond shocked,” he said. “Our girls at home: I love you. Thank you for supporting daddy and loving me through all of what I do. Same with you, baby girl. You make it all worthwhile.”
