Lil Nas X has already tapped some heady collaborators in his young career. Think Megan Thee Stallion, Jack Harlow, Doja Cat, Elton John, Miley Cyrus and her dad, Billie Ray.
The “Old Town Road” rapper has another music-making crossover in mind that’s sure to get the house wiggling.

Stranger things have happened. Tame Impala mastermind Kevin Parker recently teamed up with the Wiggles on stage for to perform “Elephant,” their joint triple j Hottest 100-topping number from the album ReWiggled.

The Wiggles are hotter than a hot potato right now.
In recent months, the four-piece topped Australia’s Hottest 100 countdown for the first time, then scored their first leader on the ARIA Albums Chart with ReWiggled.
Next month, they’ll collect the Ted Albert Award for Outstanding Services to Australian Music at the 2022 APRA Awards, one of the greatest distinctions in Australia’s music industry.
Lil Nas X’s first-ever headlining tour will kick off at The Fillmore in Detroit on Sept. 6, before heading to Europe for a seven-date run, ending on Nov. 17 in Barcelona.
Last September, the artist landed 11 songs, all from his debut LP Montero, on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Three of those impacted the Top 10. He’s also led the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” and “Old Town Road,” which ruled for a record-breaking 19-weeks.
