The rapper revealed that he wants to collaborate with the Fenty Beauty mogul on the remix to his chart-topping hit “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).” In an interview where he was asked who he wants on the remix.
The interviewer added, “It makes me feel like this may already be in the pipeline,” to which Lil Nas X responded, “I wish.”
However, he was somewhat hesitant to put it out there in case it doesn’t happen. “What if I ask for it? I don’t want to jinx it.”
It may not be too much of an ask as Rihanna is already a fan of “Montero.” After hearing a snippet of the song last summer, she described it as “banging” during a livestream.
“Honest to God, I’m not just saying that. It is dope,” she told the “Old Town Road” hitmaker, who was featured in a Fenty Skin campaign. “I’m so glad ’cause you came so strong in the beginning. That kinda gets tricky with like, where do you go next? But you killin’ it, I’m happy for you.”
Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, earning Lil Nas X his second number one song on the chart. His full-length debut album, also titled Montero, is due this summer.
