Lil Nas X, Drake, and Nicki Minaj

Lil Nas X Tried to Get Drake and Nicki Minaj on 'Montero'

  /  09.16.2021

Lil Nas X’s debut album Montero drops tonight featuring Doja Cat, Elton John, and Megan Thee Stallion.

But there are two artists he was unable to get on the project. On the eve of his album release, the “Industry Baby” rapper stopped by “The Breakfast Club” where he revealed why Nicki Minaj and Drake weren’t available.

According to Nas, Nicki didn’t reply to his feature request. He didn’t say why, but it could be because of his past. Nas once ran a Nicki Twitter stan page @NasMaraj, but he only admitted to it after the success of “Old Town Road.”

His denial did not sit well with Nicki or her Barbz. “It was a bit of a sting when you denied being a barb, but I understand,” she once tweeted. “Congratulations on building up your confidence to speak your truth. @LilNasX.”

He later addressed his love for her on his song “Sun Goes Down,” which includes the lyrics, “I’d be by the phone / Stanning Nicki morning into dawn / Only place I felt like I belonged / Strangers make you feel so loved, you know?”

Drake, however, did reply to Nas’ request, but was unable to do it because he was still working on Certified Lover Boy. “He said he’s down to do something, but it’s just not the right time,” he said.

Nas revealed that he wanted Drake on his song “Dolla Sign Slime,” which ultimately includes a guest verse from Megan Thee Stallion.

Montero also features the hit singles “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” and “Industry Baby” with Jack Harlow, plus a collaboration with Miley Cyrus.
