The Bounce Back star and his girlfriend Jhene Aiko were among the guests invited to the 25th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party in Hollywood on Sunday (26Feb17), and Big Sean was floored when the 69-year-old revealed he enjoyed listening to the hip-hop star's hit album I Decided.

He shared a photo of the trio smiling for the cameras at the event, and expressed his disbelief at the whole exchange.

"Thought we was in the Twighlight Zone Walked up to Elton n he said 'Love your new album front to back, it made me a fan'," Sean shared, adding, "but that's just how f**kin cool you are man, thanks for having us (sic)".

Elton is known for his unlikely love of rap, famously teaming up with Eminem for a performance at the 2001 Grammy Awards, and more recently turning heads by hanging out with Young Thug in the MC's native Atlanta, Georgia last year (16) amid rumours of a surprise collaboration.
