He wrote: “Pick up truck rollin’ as the soul & vibe just takes over.

“We took a little road trip and start singing songs ~ and I start groovin’ to one of my ALL TIME FAV songs, from one of the [kings]

“George Michael ~ ‘Kissing A Fool’. Beautifully written. Beautifully arranged. Beautifully performed, by George. Completely f**king ruined by DJ, singing confidently in keys that don’t exist.”

Kissing A Fool was featured on Michael’s debut solo album Faith and was, at one time, the working title for the album.

In his post, The Rock also referenced his own tequila brand, writing: “You should hear me sing when I’m drinking @teremana.”

When playing the voice role of Maui in the Disney film Moana, USA Today reports Johnson would take a sip of tequila while warming up his singing voice.
