Young Thug‘s long-rumored remix of Sir Elton John‘s iconic 1972 song, “Rocket Man,” has made its way online. The collaboration has been talked about for the past two years, now arriving just after the release of Thug’s Slime Language project.

The remix is the result of Young Thug’s visit to Elton John’s Atlanta home a couple years back. Following their time together, John blessed Thug with the instrumental version of “Rocket Man,” as the now-27-year-old rapper couldn’t help but go in over it.

“It’s all the instrumental, the guitar, piano; and Thug is not rapping, he’s singing,” a source told The Fader. “It’s really ambient and amazing.”
