EDM legend Steve Aoki made a big announcement on YouTuber Logan Paul’s IMPAULSIVE podcast, saying he’s planning a big collaboration with country singer Kane Brown.
Steve Aoki is one of the biggest names in EDM. Aoki has won major awards and features with other popular mainstream artists and is also a record producer his own label and fashion brand, as well as heir to his father’s Benihana fortune.
In the past, Aoki has collaborated with the likes of Lil John, BTS, Fall Out Boy, and more… but his upcoming collaboration isn’t something fans were likely expecting.
On March 22nd, Steve Aoki appeared on an episode of the IMPAULSIVE podcast hosted by YouTube star Logan Paul and fellow influencers Mike Majlak and George Janko.
Steve Aoki Teases Upcoming Collaboration With Country Artist Kane Brown
During the episode, Aoki dropped a massive bombshell for all listeners: he created a country/EDM mashup with American country singer Kane Brown.
“It’s got a fucking crazy harmonica solo,” he explained. “The drop is fire. I could do a crazy country swing dance to that shit.”
Aside from being a fellow artist, Kane is actually good friends with Aoki, and the two often play Warzone together. “Kane, he was a good friend,” Aoki said. “We will always stop by the zone. He’s actually pretty good too.”
Apparently, Paul is also good friends with Kane, making for a surprising and heartwarming moment between the group.

This marks the latest step in Aoki’s 20+ year career and leaves fans excited to witness this unexpected – but not unwelcome – cross-genre mash-up.
This is far from the first time a musical announcement has been made on the IMPAULSIVE podcast; In January, the NFL’s Antonio Brown teased that he would be writing a song with Kanye West, although we’re still waiting to hear more from that front.
