Fans expressed shock over the interaction, while others started speculating that a collaboration may be in the works. However, nothing concrete has been announced by either parties.
Still, fans are hopeful that the meeting will bear fruit to a song especially since Lay Zhang has been teaming up with other artists in the past months.
Early this year, he shared the stage with Steve Aoki for a performance of “Shakalaka”. He also participated in the Michael Jackson tribute single titled “Let’s Shut Up and Dance“, together with Jason Derulo and NCT 127. Most recently, the singer-songwriter collaborated with Far East Movement for “Lovebird“.
Prior to these collaborations, the EXO member released a new version of his hit song “Sheep” which he worked on with Alan Walker.
