Lil Nas X stated that he offered Nicki Minaj his song “INDUSTRY BABY” for a feature, but she did not respond.
Lil Nas X earlier revealed that he attempted to enlist Nicki Minaj’s help for his first studio album MONTERO, but he never received a response. We now know the song she was meant to feature on thanks to a Twitter question-and-answer session with his followers.
According to Lil Nas X, Nicki lost out on an opportunity to be on the #1 single “INDUSTRY BABY.” It’s unclear if Jack Harlow was intended to be on the track, although LNX stated that he gave it to Nicki first.
A fan inquired, “Which song did you send Nicki Minaj?” He responded, “industry baby.”
Lil Nas said last week that he sent tracks to Nicki Minaj and Drake but that they never responded. He said he was being ghosted by Nicki. In the case of Drake, he stated that the rapper didn’t have time to record a verse since he was working on Certified Lover Boy.
“INDUSTRY BABY,” which featured Jack Harlow, became Lil Nas’ newest smash single, but we can’t help but wonder how Nicki would have sounded on it. It would have been a wonderful moment for them to hit #1 together, especially because LNX grew up hating Nicki, but alas, the world didn’t want that to happen.
Right now, Lil Nas is taking questions regarding his first album on Twitter, so if you have any, head over to his account and ask away.
