Who saw this one coming?

Oh, right, everybody.

Morgan Wallen shocked the world back in 2021 when he dropped a surprise collaboration with rapper Lil Durk with Morgan’s song “Broadway Girls.”

The unlikely collab was on the heels of Morgan’s highly-publicized racial slur incident, and Durk came out in fierce defense of the country singer:

“Everybody was against it. They’re like ‘Hell no, they’re gonna cancel you.’ I was like ‘I’m gonna take my chances with it.’ As long as I know that I rock with him, that he ain’t no racist, I’m gonna do what I wanna do.”

The two have since struck up a close friendship, from going fishing together to Morgan making an appearance on Durk’s single “Stand By Me” last year.

And Durk has said in the past that he would love to do a collab album with Morgan, tweeting last year that the duo needed to get back in the studio together:

But now it sounds like Durk and Wallen are actually going to make it happen.

Last night at the Grammys, the Chicago-based rapper told ET that the collab album between him and Morgan Wallen would be coming “soon” – and that he would be back on the red carpet at the Grammys celebrating the album next year:

“It’s going to be a collab album soon. So that means I’ll see you again next year.”

And while ET reporter Nischelle Turner was surprised by the news, I’m pretty sure she’s the only one who didn’t see this one coming.

Of course it may seem like an unlikely pairing, but back in 2021 Durk explained how the friendship between him and Wallen came about as Morgan was dealing with the fallout from his controversy:

“Last year I had dropped my album, it was called ‘The Voice.’ In my eyes, I’m like, ‘Ain’t nobody else dropping, we’re going number one. I’m celebrating early.’

Then they called, like, ‘You’re number two.’ So I’m like, ‘Who’s number one?’ He dropped the same day I dropped, and he was number one for ten weeks.

So I DM’d him, I’m like ‘Man, we gotta do something, just lock it in.’ And we was choppin’ it up and he was telling me, like, ‘We got the little situation going on.’ He was like, ‘When it’s the right time.’

And I just reached back out to him, like ‘Let’s just do it.’ I hung out with him, I just felt the vibe, felt the genuine love from him. Like, nah, you just made a mistake, you’re not a racist.”

So while Morgan recently had an album drop that he didn’t want released, it seems like he’s got one of his own that will be coming out in the near future.
