Lil Nas X's debut album Montero dropped last night with features from Elton John, Doja Cat, Jack Harlow, Miley Cyrus, and Megan Thee Stallion.

That's an impressive list, but it doesn't include Nicki Minaj -- who LNX has stanned for in the past -- or industry kingpin Drake even though X reached out to both.

LNX explained why those names were missing during his Breakfast Club interview.

"No reply from Nicki, Drake was still working on his album," he said. "“Drake replied, cause you know Gee Roberson’s my manager. Drake and Gee are cool. And he was still working on Certified Lover Boy and whatnot and he was 100 percent focused on that. This was like a few weeks ago and I understood completely, and he said he’s down to do something but just not the right time. He was trying to get his own sh*t together.”

Nicki Minaj felt stung last year when LNX denied being a Barb.

LNX has said he only did so because he didn't want people to know that he was gay, and became more open with his Nicki fandom after he came out of the closet.

However, Nicki remembers.
