The launch message

Before starting this era. Lil Nas wanted to reflect on what has happened to him in recent years. And it is worth remembering that the artist became known in 2019 thanks to the global success of Old Town Road with Billie Ray Cyrus. Although many thought that her success was going to be just a single, they were completely wrong.

Two years later, Lil Nas appeared surprising the world with Montero. A song that not only was a success, but also left the entire music industry impressed by its incredible video clip. Months later he released the self-titled album with hits like Industry Baby either That’s I Want. No, Lil Nas X was not a One Hit Wonder.

“I love the constant energy that the world has with me. When I started making music, you told me I was just another Twitter rapper. Then I made the biggest song of all time,” Lil Nas Old Town Road.

“Everyone called me One Hit Wonder. Then I made one of the most streamed albums of the year, with three hits in the top five. Now they’re saying my new shit isn’t going to do anything. You guys haven’t realized I’m the one favorite of the gods”, he ended up saying along with the release date of his new song. And he has every indication that this last sentence, so damning, is going to be part of this new single.
