Australia’s new prime minister Scott Morrison late Friday welcomed an unlikely backstage invite from US rapper Fatman Scoop, after the conservative leader stirred a social media storm when he took exception to the entertainer’s lyrics.

Morrison — an evangelical Christian who has been prime minister for just a few weeks — on Thursday deleted a video on his social media accounts showing lawmakers raising their hands in parliament to the lyrics from Fatman Scoop’s hit song “Be Faithful”.
