The UK star and the US rapper were spotted together in a new photo (above) which shows them together somewhere in Atlanta, sitting in a pair of directors’ chairs.

While details of the collaboration are yet to emerge, the image was sent out with confirmation that they are “working on something together”, marking the latest high-profile team-up for both artists.

Yungblud most recently joined forces with Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes on 2022’s ‘Happier’ and even arrived on stage at the latter’s O2 Arena show over the weekend to perform their previous collab ‘Obey’.

Lil Yachty, meanwhile, has teamed up with the likes of Drake and Playboi Carti in the past.

Last year also saw Yungblud win Best Live Act at the Rolling Stone UK Awards, where he said that “live music and live playing is everything to me. It’s all I ever wanted to do. I just want to connect with people and find a family that is my fucking own.”

Feeling “knackered” from 120 shows this year Yungblud paid tribute to his fellow nominees and the effort of touring. Moving on, he briefly tackled the conversation around Artificial Intelligence.

“In a world of artificial intelligence you can’t fucking beat human connection. You can’t bet pouring your heart out on stage, fucking screaming, everything. That’s what we all got into this for.”

Finally, he closed by saying, “British music means everything to me. I want to fucking take it worldwide.”

Hailing Yungblud’s abilities as a live performer in the awards issue of Rolling Stone UK, we wrote: “This is the man who is a “Tasmanian devil of pop-rock”, as our cover interview explained last year, but also one who has managed to forge his own individual path as a very 21st century rock star.

“He may have all the uniting energy of the genre’s greatest stars, but tempers it with a unique ability to create a space where his crowd can feel safe from the world for a couple of hours, regardless of their colour, creed, sexuality, or pronouns.”
