We Need a Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish Collab ASAP

What’s better than peanut butter and jelly? Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish. We know they seem like opposites, but maybe that’s what would make them so great together.

The world needs a collab between Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish. We think it’s the best idea of the summer, and we’ll show you why.

Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish are both record-breaking artists

Lil Nas X recently worked with another Billy and it was a great success. Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus‘ collab hit, Old Town Road smashed into the music scene. Breaking perceptions of what it means to sing rap and country music, the song ruled the charts all summer long. It sat in the number one spot of the Billboard Top 100 for a solid 19 weeks.

But now, another track has come along to knock Old Town Road off its throne. Eilish’s Bad Guy now holds the top position of the Billboard chart. 

If you expected Lil Nas X and Cyrus to be resentful, we’re sorry to disappoint. They were actually very supportive of Eilish and congratulated her on the success.

On Twitter, Lil Nas X posted, “Congratulations to billie eilish![sic].” Cyrus had a similar reaction. He tweeted, “Congratulations @billieeilish Well deserved. Your persistence paid off. Thanks everybody. It was a hell of a ride.”

Eilish is also breaking records. She’s the first artist born in the 2000s to hold a number one spot on the Billboard charts. Bad Guy is her first number-one single. But the album it’s on, When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, debuted in the number one spot of the Billboard Top 200 Album chart. 

So now that Cyrus’ song is no longer number one, shouldn’t Lil Nas X team up with another Billie to break more records?

Why we need a collab from Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish

It’s obvious that people love both Lil Nas X and Eilish. They’ve both had outstanding success on the charts, and even though their music is different, people love them both. Instead of competing for sales and spots on the charts, why shouldn’t they just team up and conquer the charts together? 

Lil Nas X has already shown that he’s willing to work with artists that have a different type of music than him. Just look at Old Town Road. Who could be more different to Lil Nas X than Cyrus? Eilish worked with Khalid, for the song Lovely, which is a wonderful mix of their two styles. Lil Nas X and Eilish both have experience doing interesting collaborations, and the willingness to make it work.

Plus, just imagine the cool sounds they would make together. A mix of their styles would be a perfect chart-topper. The world needs this. 

Lil Nas X said he’d love to do a collab with Billie Eilish

Not only do fans think it’s a good idea, but Lil Nas X also thinks it’s a good idea. During an interview on PopBuzz’s Interrogation Room, Lil Nas X was asked who he would like to do collaborations with. He was given an envelope filled with photos of other artists and told to pick out the artists he would most want to work with.

Lil Nas X chose Eilish’s photo before any of the other artists, including Drake and Rihanna. He said, “Billie Eilish, of course. She’s great. I can’t wait.”

So. there you have it. Lil Nas X wants to do a collab with Eilish. Looks like it’s only a matter of time until our fantasy comes to life.
