Lil Nas X Wants Rihanna on ‘Montero’ Remix
Written by on April 19, 2021
Lil Nas X is calling for Rihanna.
The rapper has 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 with “Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp,” Nas was asked who he wants on the remix.
“Rihanna and Bad Bunny,” he said of his dream lineup.
Kemp added, “It makes me feel like this may already be in the pipeline,” to which Nas 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 Nas his second leader on the chart. His full-length debut album, also titled Montero, is due this summer.
“It’s probably going to be about 15 to 18 [tracks],” he told Apple Music. “And the deluxe. We’re going to drop a deluxe in the fall too. At least that’s the plan right now.”
