Azealia Banks could be making a return to the charts for the first time in almost 10 years as a collaboration with Lil Nas X is on the cards.

Since storming onto the scene with his 2019 breakthrough hit Old Town Road, Lil Nas’s popularity has continuously soared to new heights, proving wrong those critics who predicted he would be a one-hit-wonder: his 2021 hits Montero (Call Me By Your Name) and Industry Baby have easily cemented him as one of the most influential mainstream artists today.

Azealia, meanwhile, rose to fame in 2012 with the release of her debut single 212, but the past decade has seen her make headlines for her very public online feuds with Nicki Minaj, Zayn, Iggy Azalea, Doja Cat, and the entire nation of Ireland – to name but a few – rather than her musical career.

This could soon be set to change, however, as Lil Nas has revealed he wants to make a song with the New York rapper.

Despite Azealia’s past use of homophobic slurs, for which she has since apologised, Lil Nas, who is proud and open about his sexuality, included her in a recent TikTok video where he named artists he would ‘want to make a song with’.

The list included Ariana Grande, Willow Smith, and Cardi B, another musician Azealia has feuded with in the past.

Hours after Lil Nas posted the video to multiple social media channels, Azealia took to Instagram where she tagged him in her story and wrote: ‘Let’s get ‘em.’

There is some excitement around the potential collaboration between the two artists, with Afrobeats musician Nqobilé writing ‘GIVE US [an Azealia Banks collaboration]’ under Lil Nas’s original post.

Not everyone is convinced, however, with some in the comments referring to Azealia’s past use of homophobic slurs and insults.

But one Twitter user wrote that they ‘can’t wait’ for the ‘music/controversy Lil Nas X and Azealia Banks would conjure up’.

Another added: ‘an azealia x lil nas collab would make me so annoying to be around. i need it.’(Sic)

It remains to be seen whether a Lil Nas X and Azealia Banks song will actually come to pass, but far stranger things have happened this year.
