Madonna and Lil Nas X? It might happen.
The Old Town Road rapper appeared at Madonna’s Madame X concert in Los Angeles, where she took some time to sit down with the viral star and sip his beer before inviting him to her farm to record a duet.
“That looks so thirst-quenching, may I have a sip? If I drink this, I’d be getting some of your backwash,” she joked. “It’s kinda sharp, your backwash. Might cut my tongue.”
Lil Nas X replied: “I’m in the presence of a legend I’m just happy to be here… this has been the most amazing show I’ve ever witnessed.”
After singing some of his hit single Old Town Road together, Madonna offered to “teach [him] how to ride” a horse at her farm in New York.
“I expect you to show up at my horse farm, I’m gonna show you what to do with a horse for real, and then we can make a song about chickens, because I got chickens too,” she said.
And it seems Lil Nas X is on board, as he replied: “I’m ready, I’m down.”

Back in August, Lil Nas X’s debut single Old Town Road became the longest-running number one in history on the Billboard Hot 100.
It spent 19 consecutive weeks in the pole position, three weeks longer than the two previous record holder; One Sweet Day by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men (1995–96); and Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber (2016).
During its reign, Lil Nas X came out as gay, becoming the first artist to do so while having a number one song.
Later, he became the second openly gay man, after Elton John, to earn a diamond-certification for a single. According to Billboard, Old Town Road has reached sales (and streaming equivalent sales) of 10 million units.
He also became the first gay artist to win Musical Event of the Year at the Country Music Awards.
