Cobra Starship has a knack for lining up high-profile collaborations. The emo-pop clowns’ debut single, “Snakes on a Plane (Bring It),” was a joint effort with Gym Class Heroes’ Travis McCoy and The Academy Is…’s William Beckett, among others; “Good Girls Go Bad,” their current chart-climbing single, features guest vocals from Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester. So who’s on the band’s dream list of artists to work with?
“Man, I would love to do something with Justin Timberlake,” Cobra Starship captain Gabe Saporta tells the Music Mix. “He’s kind of my inspiration for Cobras. When I started Cobras, I was like, ‘I wanna do a punk-rock version of Justin Timberlake.'” How’s that? “I don’t sing as good, I don’t dance as good, but I’m, like, 100 times a bigger a–hole,” Saporta jokes.
Would you like to see a Cobra x Justin song become a reality? What kind of music do you think this potential match-up would make?
