It’s not the first time Lil Nas has comedically referenced the Australian children’s group. Back in 2020, the rapper tweeted a photoshopped cover for a Wiggles remix of ‘Rodeo’, a track from his debut EP ‘7’ which featured Cardi B.

Lil Nas announced his ‘Long Live Montero’ tour earlier this week. The North American leg is slated to kick off on September 6 in Detroit before continuing along to Chicago, Toronto, Boston, New York, Atlanta, Miami, Los Angeles and more.
In November, the tour will head to Europe and the UK, with shows in Amsterdan, Berlin, Paris and the Eventim Apollo in London among them.
The Wiggles, meanwhile, recently topped Australia’s annual Hottest 100 countdown with a cover of Tame Impala‘s ‘Elephant’ they performed as part of broadcaster triple j’s Like a Version series.
Earlier this month, things came full-circle when Kevin Parker joined the band onstage during a show at RAC Arena in Perth, performing a rendition of ‘Elephant’ and ‘Hot Potato’ alongside them.
