If you’re waiting for the collaborative track featuring real-life astronaut Cmdr. Scott Kelly and hip-hop star Cardi B, then you’re probably out of luck.

Kelly may have conquered the final frontier, but, as it turns out, even he is vulnerable to social media hacking:

This week, three tweets appeared on Kelly’s Twitter that sent the internet into a free fall as people tried to decipher their meanings.

After tweeting at foxnews.com, hacker “Kelly” turned to Cardi B, posting how he wanted to discuss collaborative ideas and requesting the Bodak Yellow queen to DM him.

Fans assumed “Kelly’s” proposal to be for mashup, which many thought would be out of this world.

Hundreds Retweeted the Cardi B posts from “Kelly” within the first 30 minutes.

Although the tweets suggest he is trying rocket into Cardi B’s DMs, Kelly shared follow-up comments explaining that he believed his account to be compromised:

Despite real Kelly’s clarification on the situation, some believe he accidentally searched for the terms “Cardi B” and “foxnews.com” in the space for writing tweets.

For her part, Cardi B did not tweet a response, so the world may never know if she’d be down to record a track with the world record-holder for most days spent in space.
