The "Old Town Road" singer dropped his newest track, titled "Panini," on Thursday
Are we on the precipice of the most interesting collab ever?
Don’t be fooled by the song’s title, though. Lil Nas X, 20, said on Twitter that it’s not about a sandwich, along with a photo of the character Panini from Cartoon Network’s Chowder. He later joked, “wtf they named a sandwich after my new song.”
Whether or not the song is about sandwiches, Lil Nas X is interested in bringing on one of the biggest names in food to the remix: Gordon Ramsay.
The best part? The Hell’s Kitchen star seems intrigued by the idea.
Lil Nas X tweeted out on Thursday, “tryna get gordon ramsay on this panini remix.” Just a few hours later, Ramsay, 52, quoted the rapper’s tweet, writing, “Tell me more…”
Fans were excited at the mention of Ramsay, and Lil Nas X’s tweet quickly gained hundreds of responses, many of which included some hilarious GIFs from Ramsay’s many shows.
He tweeted on Thursday, “panini interpolates parts of nirvana’s ‘in bloom’. special thank you to frances bean cobain for this!!”
But the rapper didn’t sample the iconic rock band on purpose. In fact, he said in an Apple Music interview that working on “Panini” is what introduced him to Nirvana.
“One of the craziest things about ‘Panini,’ is it introduced me to Nirvana’s album ‘Nevermind,'” he said. “It’s like I always seen the cover but I never actually listened to it. And people was like, ‘Wow, he sampled ‘Nirvana.” I was like, no. It’s like, I didn’t realize I was using almost the exact same melody.”
