We need to know how a Lil Nas X and Gordon Ramsay collab would sound (Picture: AFF-USA, Rex)First it was Billy Ray Cyrus and now it seems Gordon Ramsay might come to Lil Nas X’s rescue.
Fresh from the success of his number one hit Old Town Road, the 21-year-old rapper has released his latest single, Panini, which isn’t as much an ode to the tasty hot sandwiches as you might think.
Regardless, Lil Nas X sent a plea for Gordon, 52, to hop on the track and, surprisingly, the TV chef is more than up for it.
Sounds like a perfect fit to us.
After releasing the song on Thursday, Lil Nas X tweeted: ‘Tryna get gordon ramsay on this panini remix.’
The British chef replied: ‘Tell me more…’
Yes, please do tell us more Lil Nas. Like when is this happening and what will it take for us to feature on a track?
Fans are fully embracing the idea, with one quipping: ‘Gordon be cookin more than just food,’ while another excitedly predicted: ‘Did somebody say “song of the summer!”?’
Masterchef team have also given their seal of approval, tweeting: ‘The collab we never we needed.’
If Lil Nas X and Gordon do hook up in the studio, they’ll be under pressure to match the success of the rapper’s breakout hit Old Town Road, which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and UK charts.
The track was removed from Billboard’s country chart as it was deemed not country enough, but Billy Ray remixed the song, propelling it to number one.

Comparing the quality of Panini to his breakout, Lil Nas X told Zane Lowe on Beats 1: ‘Old Town Road wasn’t done in a professional studio, that’s the thing.
‘It was never even mixed and mastered. Like the song that you hear today, it’s not mixed or mastered. That’s from the $20 bucks I paid [for] the rough mix. It was crazy, but it’s like everything else… lately in my life.’
