In his now-revealed tracklist, Lil Nas X seems to be bringing along some of the brightest stars along with him for his debut body of work. Rappers Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat and Jack Harlow are all part of the project, as well as Miley Cyrus and Elton John, who has praised Lil Nas X quite frequently.
In May, John referred to the rapper as a hero of his. Lil Nas X presented John with the Icon Award at the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards, and in his speech shared that he inspired him. He explained, “He’s inspired me and so many other people by being himself, and being larger than life, flashy and fearless, especially when he’s in front of that piano.”
