Heidi Klum may be known for her work as a supermodel and television personality, but the SI Swimsuit legend is also perhaps a pop star in the making.

The 50-year-old mom of four recently collaborated with Dutch DJ and record producer Tiësto on a cover of Corey Hart’s 1984 hit single, “Sunglasses at Night.” The track, which was released on streaming platforms on Friday, has officially been approved by a certain iconic pop star, Klum told People in a new interview. 

“ ... I sent it to Kylie Minogue. She loved it,” the America’s Got Talent judge told the outlet. “She’s kind of like my spirit animal, too. We’re very, very similar in a lot of ways. She loves life, she loves having fun, she loves to dance. I sent it to her, she’s like, ‘Oh my gosh.’ I love her.”

Klum also got the original artist’s stamp of approval on her cover. On TikTok earlier this week, she shared a video snippet in which Hart congratulated her on the artistic endeavor.

“Good luck on your single,” he stated. “It’s the 40th anniversary since the release of the song, and you’re a star.”

While some of Klum’s fans may not know that she’s dabbled in music before (she released a track, “Chai Tea With Heidi,” alongside Snoop Dogg last January), she recently told Zane Lowe that music is her “passion” and she’s enjoyed the process of exploring it.

“Aren’t we allowed to be multifaceted and wanting to do different things?” Klum noted. “I feel like, to be pigeonholed, those days are over.”
