K-pop boy band EXO and popular comedian and show host Yoo Jae-suk have come together for a new collaborative project.

The unlikely partners will be releasing a samba-inspired dance track, “Dancing King,” through S.M. Entertainment’s digital music platform S.M. Station, according to the management agency Monday. S.M. Station aims to release a new collaborative single by the company’s artists and non-S.M. artists every week for a year.

Yoo also made an appearance at EXO’s concert “EXO PLANET #3 - The EXO’rDIUM” in Bangkok, Thailand, on Sept. 11 to complete a task assigned to him by MBC’s long-running variety program “Infinite Challenge.”

The 32nd track released by S.M. Station this year, “Dancing King” will be available on all major local music sites after Saturday’s episode of “Infinite Challenge” -- on which EXO will be making a guest appearance -- at 8 p.m.
