There is no bigger fan of Shania Twain than Diplo. Or maybe it’s Post Malone.
The battle for the legendary best-selling female artist in country music history, as well as one of the best-selling music artists in general’s affection, is well underway.
Malone Initiates Beer Pong Battle
The two artists faced off in a new episode of Post Malone’s Celebrity World Pong League which he posts on Facebook Watch. The show features different guests coming and playing beer pong with Post Malone and his team. Other guests so far have been Machine Gun Kelly, The Chainsmokers, Quavo, and more.
This week featured award-winning producer and DJ, Diplo. Before facing off it was clear the two had something in common: their love for Shania Twain. In the first few minutes of the clip, Malone jokes that Twain said she likes him more than she likes Diplo. They argue over who the real cowboy is as well.
“Hey guys Shania Twain here. I’m here to tell you what is going to happen to you when you lose this game. Whoever loses is going to have to sing a children’s song in many different genres,” Twain starts the game by saying.
In other sections of the game Twain is shown popping up on the screen telling each of them “You are the one” separately.
Malone exclaims “Oh my God she switched sides!”
While the game of beer pong was close, Malone and his game experience allowed him to come out on top.
Does that mean he won Twain’s love and affection?
Twain’s Love and Affection
The good news is she already seems to have quite the respect for the rapper/singer.
In an interview with People, Twain revealed that she was still serious about collaborating with Malone for a duet.
“I’m not strategizing. If he doesn’t want it, it’s no problem, but I have definitely [written a song for him,] … So we’ll see. I’m a fan of his anyway. I really love it. I love his voice,” Twain said.
The duet may be in the near future as Malone proved after dancing and singing enthusiastically to her performance at the AMAs that he is quite the fanboy. Diplo was also starstruck after seeing his icon on the red carpet before the show.
