Tyler, the Creator sat down with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe for a rare interview on Thursday (July 18), which found him traversing through a number of topics and talking all things IGOR. At one point, Tyler gushed over Billie Eilish‘s music and professed his hopes to one day work with the “bad guy” artist, prompting a stunned reaction from Eilish after hearing about the co-sign.
“Until Billie Eilish fuck me up next week. That bitch is big. That n—a came from nowhere. I think it’s sick,” Tyler said of her When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? debut. “I like her. I just want her to keep doing her God damn thing. I want to work with her. I don’t know what the fuck we would make. Even if it don’t come out, if it’s trash, I still just want to see what we could [do].”
The 17-year-old burgeoning star quickly replied to Tyler’s admiration on her Instagram. “lmfaoooooo i would never in a billion years have thought these words would come out of this mans mouth. wow. i would be nothing without you tyler.. everyone knows it,” she candidly wrote.
