Earlier this month, Khalid and former One Direction star Niall Horan interacted on Twitter, sending fans into a frenzy. Now, the 'Young, Dumb & Broke' star revealed how they met.

In May, Niall Horan responded to one of Khalid's tweets - which sent fans into meltdown, as they demanded the pair work on a collab.

Khalid, who shared a fan's response to a clip of him dancing on Good Morning Britain, then retweeted Niall, who replied with a series of laughing Emojis.

Now, talking exclusively to Capital FM at the 2019 Summertime Ball, Khalid reveals how the pair became pals in the first place...

Khalid revealed: "So we met...it was crazy...I feel like it was a year or two back?

"He [Niall] watched my soundcheck to a show that I had, and I really respected that. I thought it was super awesome."

He added: "We became friends, I really respect him."

When asked if he'd played a spot of golf with the One Direction star, Khalid laughed, before replying: "No, but he sent me a video of golf a minute ago, like, to one of my songs - I think it was 'Young, Dumb & Broke'.

"He's riding around in the buggy [in the video] haha, it was super cool. I would go golfing [...] I don't really know how, so maybe he could teach me."

Here's hoping we see more from these two - and that golf date actually happens!
