Steve Aoki is getting ready to drop a song with the biggest DJ in the world.
Earlier in the week, Aoki challenged fans to guess his next collaborator by sharing an intensely difficult-to-solve teaser image.
For those who somehow couldn't crack the case, Aoki eventually went ahead and announced that his first single of 2022 is a collaboration with NBA legend and dubstep producer Shaquille O'Neal, affectionally known in electronic music circles as DJ Diesel.
Titled "Welcome to the Playhouse," the upcoming song will seemingly soundtrack Aoki's outrageous multi-purpose game room, Aoki's Playhouse. Neither artist has shared a preview ahead of this weekend's release, but Aoki did leave a hint at what's to come, noting in a tweet that Diesel "goes hard on the mic" in the collab. It will be interesting to see how his vocals and penchant for heavy-hitting bass combines with Aoki's mainstage-friendly, electro sound.
