The collab of the century might just be happening. On Friday night, "Old Town Road" artist Lil Nas X sent out a message into the Twitterverse, saying, "ok mariah carey lets get this remix in."

Mimi responded simply with a gorgeous photo of herself with big yeehaw energy, wearing a cowboy hat. She captioned the photo, "One Sweet Town Road," a reference to her 2009 Boyz II Men collab, "One Sweet Day."
