During an interview at the end of last year, Sir Elton John admitted that he had not only heard of Young Thug but actually really liked his music. His Rocket Hour radio show on Beats 1 highlights his wide range of musical taste, but it looks like he may be taking things a step further quite soon.
According to The FADER, the two artists may release a collaboration in the future. Thug and John recently had the chance to formally speak over FaceTime thanks to be connected through 300 Entertainment co-founder Lyor Cohen. However, it doesn’t seem like this alleged forthcoming collaboration will be a completely new record.
John reportedly sent Thugger the instrumental to his 1975 classic “Rocket Man” for him to add his own touch to. Thug reportedly chose to sing rather than rap over the timeless hit. News of a “Rocket Man” remix with Young Thug may actually be much bigger news than Elton John and Thugger creating a new track. Let’s hope we hear these results very soon.
