In this week’s edition of unexpected collaborations, we have Trivium frontman Matt Heafy working together ’80s pop star Richard Marx.

The two have teamed up for a metal version of Marx’s 1989 number-one hit, “Right Here Waiting.” The updated recording features Marx singing lead over Heafy’s heavy instrumentals and growling backup vocals.

“The crazy talented @matthewkheafy of Trivium came up with an amazing metal version of my song,” Marx tweeted. “We did vocals together and it’s out today! Check it out!!”
