Elton John, Nicki Minaj, Young Thug

Nicki Minaj and Young Thug Join Elton John on ‘Always Love You’

Elton John’s new album The Lockdown Sessions arrives today featuring appearances from Lil Nas X, 6LACK, and Stevie Wonder.

The star-studded set also includes a collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Young Thug, who join the 74-year-old icon on “Always Love You.”

Sir Elton kicks off the piano-driven track before the Punk rapper adds his super slimey flow. The Queen comes through with bars and vocals, which she previously teased.

“Once upon a time when we rolled out / But now, baby, oh no, you sold out,” Nicki raps on her melodic verse.

“I’ve admired Young Thug for a while and he sampled one of my songs on his track, ‘High,’ back in 2018 so it was great to collaborate again,” said Elton. “And then, I was so pleased when Nicki agreed to do it. I’m very grateful to have such talented artists from a totally different genre to me on this album and that they’ve included me.”

Recorded remotely over the last 18 months, The Lockdown Sessions also features the Dua Lipa-assisted hit “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix),” plus guest spots from Charlie Puth, Miley Cyrus, Stevie Nicks, and more.
