The EP features a few guest appearances, including some smooth vocal runs from 6LACK and a chilling verse from prodigy Jaden Smith, but most notably features, as nothing less than a gift from heaven, credits from Sir Elton John himself. Rumors of this collaborative masterpiece date back to where Young Thug allegedly recorded the Elton sampled track and played it for him later that year when the two met. After being leaked early this year, it was quickly removed from SoundCloud, only to be enjoyed by the lucky few that were quick enough to sneak in a listen. Although it may not have been as apparent in the past, the chemistry and similarity between the two becomes apparent upon retrospective observation. Thug and Elton share multiple glaring similarities in their taste in flashy and high fashion, musical experimentation, and most prominently their sexual prowess. Despite the mixing of these two dramatically different musical styles, the track is extremely natural and cohesive.

This week, he released a much-anticipated collaboration with another artist who has always played by his own rules, Elton John. Throughout the course of the track, the formula works surprisingly well — almost too well, as a matter of fact, considering the absolute absurdity of the idea on paper. It takes that element of shock for granted, initially grabbing the listener's attention through its own ridiculousness then continuing to impress them by showing that it actually works. Thug is in fine form here, doing what he does best. The fact that this track exists is surprising, yet not quite out of the question considering the circumstances. This mention led to their meeting in and the approval of the track by John, which in turn led to the eventual official clearance of the sample. It is clear that the two respect and may even find kindred spirits in each other.

Fervent Young Thug fans — is there any other kind? Rumors about the possibility of a collaboration with John started circulating early in after the two artists met in Atlanta and photos of the pair appeared on Instagram. The SoundCloud link was quickly pulled. An official version finally arrived when On the Rvn came out Sunday at midnight, roughly two weeks after it was promised, amid the latest period of instability for Young Thug, who was arrested earlier this month on felony drug charges. But his research hit a wall. The synergy proved too tempting to resist. He obviously respects Elton John, as we all should. And nothing ever happened with it. We went over to his apartment, Thug played him the song over his phone, and he loved it.
