Sir Elton John does appreciate the bars. We’ve seen it when he jumped on stage alongside Eminem at the Grammys twice. He also extended his co-sign to Tech N9ne. He also locked in with Future a few years ago, though we haven’t heard the final product of whatever went down during that recording session. However, his latest project will tap a few more rappers and R&B artists that he’s grown to appreciate over the past few years.

However, the project also includes a new collaboration alongside both Young Thug and Nicki Minaj titled, “Always Love You.” 6lack also appears with Elton John on the track, “The Pink Phantom” which is credits the Gorillaz as the main artist.
Elton John has publicly expressed his appreciation for Young Thug in the past, and vice versa. It began in 2015 when John admitted that Thugger was an artist that frequently circulated his playlist.
