Elton John Praises Young Thug For Remixing "Rocket Man" On "High"

Back in 2016, Young Thug launched his venture Jeffrey. The venture’s tracklist consisted of names of individuals he thought-about heroes together with Kanye West, Harambe, Gucci Mane and extra. However, the preliminary tracklist featured a tune titled “Elton John.” Unfortunately, that tune by no means made the tracklist however there have been rumors in 2016 that Thugger remixed Elton John’s traditional hit “Rocket Man.” This proved to be true this summer season when the tune leaked earlier than an official model landed on On The Rvn. Elton John not too long ago performed Thug’s new monitor, “High” on his Beats1 present and praised the ATLien for placing his personal spin on the tune.

Elton John does not sometimes play his personal music on his Beats1 present, “Rocket Hour,” however he made an exception this week. The legendary singer performed Young Thug’s “High” off of On The Rvn which samples Elton John’s “Rocket Man.” However, earlier than he did that, he praised Young Thug for what he did with the traditional tune.

“Young Thug, who I like and have met. He dropped a monitor. It’s a remix of ‘Rocket Man,’ he stated. “And I do not normally play my very own stuff on this present however that is so cool and so good. These issues are the good surprises in what I do. Sometimes you hear one thing that you just by no means knew was going to occur or by no means thought was going to occur in one million years.”
