Kanye West just really, really wants to hear his songs in the next Deadpool movie.

The rapper took some time out of his busy schedule to watch Deadpool 2, released on May 15. On Tuesday (June 12), Ye was still buzzing about the action film and took to Twitter to express that the songs on the soundtrack--which includes Cher, Skrillex and Dolly Parton--are just his style.

"I love both Deadpool movies," he wrote along with multiple fire emojis. "I heard tracks in it that sound similar to mine… bro I would have cleared my music for Deadpool …"

West was apparently not offended by the track choices, but instead went full fangirl in a follow-up tweet in which he not-so-subtly repeated that he would definitely clear the rights to have his own tunes used in a Deadpool film.

Ryan Reynolds chimed in to say he would have a discussion with Celine Dion, who contributed "Ashes" to the sequel. See below.
