With his long-awaited debut album Montero set to arrive on Friday, Lil Nas X stopped by the Breakfast Club and revealed two features he wanted on the project but couldn’t get.

Montero features collaborations with Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Jack Harlow, Elton John, and Miley Cyrus, but originally X reached out to both Drake and Nicki Minaj to see if they would be interested in collaborating.

“Nicki and Drake,” the “Industry Baby” artist said at the nine-minute point of the interview when asked if there was anyone he wasn’t able to connect with. “No reply from Nicki, Drake was still working [on Certified Lover Boy].”

Hearing that Nicki never responded, DJ Envy brought up Lil Nas X’s past as a major fan of Minaj and Charlamagne tha God asked if Nas ever threw shade at her. “I’ve never slandered Nicki,” X replied. “There’s like a lot of things going around, but you know, I don’t respond to any of it so it’s like…’cause then it’s just gonna keep being brought back up.”

While he didn’t get a response from Nicki, it would appear Drake was interested in collaborating. “Drake replied. … He was still working on Certified Lover Boy, and whatnot, and he was 100 percent focused on that. This was like a few weeks ago, and I understood completely, and he said he’s down to do something, but just not the right time, he was trying to get his own shit together.”
