He also revealed who he wanted to feature on his latest record, but couldn’t get.
The 21-year-old sat down with Complex and was asked if, now that he’s worked with the artists he’s listed as influences and mentors, he would create a new “goal features” list. Smith said it doesn’t work like that. “No, you don’t write another list of goal features,” he stated. “That was legendary. Those people pretty much musically raised me: Tyler, Rocky, Cudi. That is the dream.”

However, there was a rap trio that he was hoping to collaborate with on ERYS, but in the end, it just didn’t work out. “There was another group of people that I wanted to be on the album that I couldn’t get, which I was very, very, very, very sad about,” he revealed. “But it’s OK, because we can save it for something else. And that group of people was Migos. Shout out to the Migos. I love you.” Smith also offered up a mysterious apology to the Atlanta trap group. “I’m sorry about Met Gala that one time.” You can check out Smith’s latest album ERYS here and let us know if you could envision Migos on the record.
