I’m like honored. Thank you very much.’”
Malone – who appeared at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards alongside Aerosmith – added that he thought about his collaborations carefully. “I don’t want to think of it as business,” he said. “I think music, at the end of the day, has nothing to do with fucking business. Music has to do with people. … you can’t go out and try to go for, ‘Oh, this person’s hot right now; I want a song with them.’ A song blows up. It’s important that… it’s organic. It’s two artists with each other [who] say, ‘Let’s make something.’”
