Alexandra Kay recently revealed one artist she’d love to collaborate with.

During an interview with Music Mayhem, Kay said she is “absolutely down” to team up with rapper, Nelly, who has previously teased a collaboration album with female country artists.

“Oh my gosh. First of all, I didn’t know that he recently teased that, and Okay, we’re gonna need to connect. Yeah. First of all, oh my gosh yes. I would absolutely be down to do that,” Kay said. “I’ve only met Nelly a few times, but I’m still friends with his nephew Tab and I was in some music videos with their group, and I still know them very well. And I used to work over at Derrty Entertainment very early in the days. And so yes, absolutely. I would love to get back into that scene. I would love to reconnect with that whole group of people,” she added.

Kay went on to say that she needs to contact the rapper’s manager to make their collaboration happen.

“I’m still friends with Nelly’s Day-to-day manager and yeah, I’m gonna hit her up and be like, ‘okay, we need to get this going.’”

Though Kay admits she’s not sure what the name of a potential collaboration between her and Nelly would be, she does know one thing they can connect over: their shared hometown.

“I don’t know what the name of the song would be. I don’t know. That’s probably something about St. Louis because we’re both from St. Louis. Something about the arch, something about the St. Louis Arch,” she explained.

Nelly teased a collaborative album with female country artists following the release of his 2021 album, Heartland, according to Country Now. The rapper teamed up with various male country artists, including BRELAND, Florida Georgia Line, and Darius Rucker to deliver what marks his first country album.

“I’m going to give you a little exclusive insight on something. This album here, we’re looking at the first part of a two-part series,” Nelly told the outlet. “If you look at this one, there is no female representation on this album. So, part one was me with the guys, and part two will be with the ladies of country music.”

Nelly revealed that his goal in collaborating with female country artists is to bring women to the forefront of a traditionally male-dominated industry.

“The women of country…they are fierce,” the rapper shared. “When I am with the guys, we are kegging, beering, trucking, smoking and hanging out. I’m going to have to bring my A-game pretty much when it comes to dealing with the ladies because they are not going to play around with Nelly,” he laughed. “They are going to bring it, and I am definitely looking forward to it.”

At the time of the interview, Nelly did not name-drop any of the female artists he was planning to work with or provide a specific release date, though he did say he was hoping to release the project by the “top of [2022].” And since the rapper has yet to share any updates on social media about the album, fans will have to stay patient for a little longer.

In the meantime, fans of Kay can look forward to her forthcoming debut album titled Backroad Therapy, which is named after her current single of the same name.
