“Dancing With the Stars” pro dancer Valentin Chmerkovskiy got quite the surprise when listening to Kanye West’s new album,”Jesus Is King.”

Chmerkovskiy— who has hoisted the “DWTS” mirrorball trophy two times— took to Instagram Fridayhours after the album’s releaseto question ahead-scratching lyric about the ABC dancing competition on West’s song, “On God.”

In the track, West raps: “That’swhy I charge the prices that I charge / I can’t be out here ‘Dancing With the Stars’ / No, I cannot let my family starve / I go hard, that’s on God.”

In the video, a shirtlessChmerkovskiy raps along to West’ssong up until the lyric. He then flashesa confused smirk, joking,”Yo, Kanye, keep talking that smack about‘Dancing Withthe Stars.’ ”

Chmerkovskiy epically called attention to Kim Kardashian West’s participation on Season 7 in 2008 with pro Mark Ballas, sharing multiple pictures of the rapper’s wife trying tokeep upon the ballroom. (She was the third star eliminated, finishing in 11th place.)

”Man,you’re going to catch this diss track. Put some rhinestones on,” Chmerkovskiy added, seemingly challenging West to participate on the reality series.

The dancer playfullycaptioned the video, “That new Ye album got me in my feelings,” adding the hashtags#shotsfired and #beefstronganoff.

Kardashian West wasn’t the only member of her family to participate on “DWTS.” In 2011, her brother Rob Kardashian danced with pro Cheryl Burke on Season 13. He fared much better than his older sister, finishing in second place.

“DWTS” is currently in its 28th season. Chmerkovskiywas paired withSailor Brinkley-Cookafter hermother Christie Brinkley was injured during rehearsals.
