This marks the latest move in Aoki’s twenty-plus-year career, leaving fans excited to witness this unexpected — but not unwelcome — genre-bending mashup.

This isn’t the first time a musical announcement has been made on the IMPAULSIVE podcast, by far; in January, the NFL’s Antonio Brown teased that he was creating a song with Kanye West, although we’re still waiting to hear more on that front.
