Lil Nas X collaborated with the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Jack Harlow, Doja Cat, Elton John and Miley Cyrus on his debut album Montero, but there’s a whole set of other artists that he hopes to work with in the near future.
On Sunday (Oct. 10), the “Industry Baby” star took to TikTok to share a video of the artists he wants to collaborate with. In the clip, he smiles alongside the words “artists who I want to make a song with” before disclosing a collage of his desired collaborators. The photomontage featured SZA, Playboi Carti, Willow Smith, Azealia Banks, Cardi B, Kid Cudi, and Tyler, the Creator, and was later shared on Instagram next to the caption, “Which song do you guys think would be best?”
Lil Nas has since heard back from Banks, who took to her Instagram Story to express her interest after getting wind of his post. “Let’s gem ‘em,” she wrote. She’s the second emcee on the rapper’s wish list who is down to hop on a track with him.
“Nigga ill work w u and frolic in rose gardens w u singin about my pain,” Cudi told the “Old Town Road” star, who immediately took to Twitter to share the news with his fans. “U heard it here first. Everybody Kid Cudi x lil Nas for Montero deluxe,” he tweeted.
“We just like, you know, [he was] giving props and congratulations and what not. And I was just saying the same thing to him,” he said. “And just like how much, like his music has shaped my life and what not, and hoping to collaborate with him. You know, I was, I was telling him that too.”
