K-pop sensation Psy officially confirmed that he has recorded a song with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.
The singer dropped the big announcement during a Vogue interview as a thank you for being on the magazines's cover. "The big secret is ... I just finished recording my next song with a legendary artist, Steven Tyler from Aerosmith," he excitedly said.
"When I was in middle school, I literally cried when they were singing 'Crazy' or 'Amazing' or whatever, they were my lifetime role models, and now I am collaborating with Steven Tyler, what the f--k, man? [laughs] I love my life."
Psy also named Freddie Mercury as his life role model, confessing that he picked up a few showmanship tricks while watching videos of the late Queen frontman.
"His songwriting skills, I cannot even approach, but his showmanship, everything I know about the stage, I learned it from his videos," he humbly said. "I had a huge rock band mania, Queen, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses."
The "Gangnam Style" singer recently also confirmed a collaboration with Queen guitarist Brian May.
"I met the guy and we had a very interesting chat," May told MTV back in June. "He's a very thoughtful man and a significant artist. He's also encyclopedic about Queen and says the reason he wanted to sing is because he saw Queen at Wembley '86 on video. We have a couple of ideas, so yeah I'm up for it."
