Even though Lil Nas X’s debut album Montero already boasts some pretty major features including Jack Harlow, Doja Cat, Elton John, Megan Thee Stallion and Miley Cyrus — it seems Nas was hoping for at least one or two more.
On Tuesday September 21, Lil Nas took part in a revealing Twitter Q&A session using the hashtag #askMONTERO. Answering fan questions and revealing some deets including that he initially hoped for several more collaborations to be on the album — like Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj.
After a fan directly enquired if he was interested in working with Gaga, to which Nas replied, "yes I actually wanted a song with her on the album but I never finished writing to it & sending it to her.”
Ugh, and now that we know that, it makes us sad. But you know what, it’s like manifestation, now that it's out there, it can actually come true. Well not with a track on the album of course, but maybe on his next one, or just a single so we don’t have to wait too long.
With Nas’s Nicki Minaj obsession being a secret to absolutely no one, it was only a matter of when not if someone was gonna ask about her. And yup! — as another fan asked which of his song did he send her to hear and possibly put a feature on. Well, turns out it was none other than "Industry Baby," which actually features Jack Harlow and has climbed pretty much to the top of the charts, so it turned out just fin, actually more than fine.
