Elton John has just released his new project recently and it is really amazing. One of the most anticipated guest appearances in the album would be the feature from Young Thug and also Nicki Minaj. It was the collaboration nobody expected or even saw coming, but when you hear the music now, it makes perfect sense. All of the three are actually flamboyant and also incredible artists at the top of their game. It is indeed a great collaboration that existed.
Other than Nicki Minaj and Young Thug (“Always Love You”), the 16-track release of his own album is a collection of collaborations Elton recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is highlighted by guest appearances from Lil Nas X (“One of Me”), Dua Lipa (“Cold Heart”), 6lack (“The Pink Phantom”), Charlie Puth (“After All”), and many more.
Elton John said, “This was one of two songs I wrote the first day I spent in the studio with Andrew Watt, but it began its life as very much an Elton John song and I didn’t really like it, it needed something. And that’s what Andrew did, he chopped up the song and moved the chorus to the beginning, and put on a track that a rapper would use, it was brilliant. That is when we got Young Thug involved. 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”.
Speaking about Nicki’s inclusion in the song he said, “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”.
