It’s here, and it’s good.
Remember that one time, two years ago, when Young Thug visited Elton John at his home in Atlanta?
Yeah. They ended up taking photos together and praising each other’s work. Then, after Young Thug’s then-manger, Amina Diop unveiled the possibility of a collaboration between the two artists, the world waited in bated breath for the track to someday see the light of day.
Back then, John had reportedly sent over an instrumental version of “Rocket Man,” that Young Thug recorded vocals over.
Then, things seemed to have gotten derailed. John announced his retirement tour, and Thugger was releasing a ton of music— Slime Season 3, Jeffery, and Beautiful Thugger Girls.
But the time is now.
The song leaked onto Soundcloud Monday night and it’s everything you never knew you needed.
