Lil Nas X‘s hit song “Industry Baby” as we know it features Jack Harlow, but in an alternate universe, it could have sounded a lot different. 

The rapper, who released his debut studio album Montero last week, hosted a Q&A session on Twitter on Tuesday and revealed that he attempted to get his idol on the track. 

When a fan on Twitter asked, “Which song did u send Nicki Minaj,” the 22-year-old responded, “industry baby.” No further explanation was given on why a Lil Nas X and Nicki collaboration failed to come to fruition. 

Although the song with Nicki didn’t happen, Montero is full of collaborations with other talented artists like Megan Thee Stallion, Miley Cyrus, Doja Cat and Elton John

During the Q&A, the “Old Town Road” artist also dished that he wanted to team up with Lady Gaga on a record for his album but he “never finished writing to it & sending it to her.”

While Lil Nas X clearly has no problem getting an assist from other artists on his songs, he surprisingly hasn’t done any features himself. He offered a simple explanation when a fan inquired about that.

“[I] haven’t found the right song yet,” he replied. “i want it to feel like a moment.”
