Khalid discussed meeting Dwayne Johnson on The Official Big Top 40 and now 'The Rock' has responded.

Khalid joined Will Manning and talked about his love for legendary actor and wrestler Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

The 'Love Lies' singer revealed how nervous he was first meeting the star - so much so that he couldn't get the words out!

"He's awesome and he's super nice. He gave me so many kind words... It took me a good 30 seconds of like 'Wow,'" Khalid said, "Then we talked and it was genuine and he gave me a lot of inspiration."

"I feel like he's an amazing role model so it's super cool to meet someone like The Rock," he continued.

Well, after we tweeted the video, The Rock himself jumped on Twitter to respond to Khalid about that very first meeting.

He tweeted: "My boy @thegreatkhalid’s the best. He totally kept his composure when we met, especially after I told him I literally listened to his entire album earlier that afternoon and had no idea we were gonna meet that night. True story. Crazy fate."
