In an interview with GQ, Lil Nas X claimed that Drake and Nicki Minaj declined offers to enter his album Montero.
He revealed that he had contacted their groups about the cooperation, but it did not work
“I don’t usually require such features. But in every feature I asked for on this album, like every one of them worked … except Drake and Nicki,“he shared.”I didn’t ask them directly. I wanted Nick with Industry Baby and Drake Dolla Sign Slime with Megan (Thee Stallion). Yeah, but I feel like things are always getting organized. Jack Harlow was the best option in the end. I’m not sure how comfortable Nicki would have felt after watching that video.
Montero, which is partnering with Elton John and Miley Cyrus, was released on September 17th and was second on Billboard’s album chart when Drake’s Certified Lover Boy beat it number one.
“I thought how blessed I am. About where I was three years ago. No one even thought I would be here. Everyone was like, “Miracle this, one – miracle this.” And now it’s amazing that my competition was Drake,” he said. “Drake with this huge album and the best-selling market in the first week of the year. Also, Drake is my idol. There are too many other gains to shock. ”
