Lil Nas X is back with new music!
He took to Instagram to share the news that he would be releasing a brand new single titled “Sun Goes Down” on May 21. According to Hot New Hip Hop, the rapper will be debuting the song during his Saturday Night Live performance.
“SUN GOES DOWN 5•21 PRESAVE LINK IN BIO,” Nas wrote in an Instagram post revealing new artwork for the upcoming music. His SNL appearance is scheduled for one night later.
Lil Nas X has had a great year following the release of his last single ” MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name).” The song shifted pop culture and created a controversial conversation on social media about this message behind this track. The visuals feature Nas giving Satan a lap-dance, which was highly criticized by numerous conservative media pundits.
The rapper was recently interviewed by British GQ, during which he admitted that he was jealous of Billie Eilish after he lost the Grammy for Record of the Year to her at last year’s Grammy Awards.
“Damn, but how? I have the biggest song. That isn’t fair,” Nas said, describing his emotions at the time.
He continued: “I put all that energy I was feeling onto her. It became jealousy that wasn’t warranted,” said Nas X. “You have the longest-running number-one song, why the f*ck are you jealous about this award? We are already so blessed. Even if you don’t have these things, you’re here. You’re still alive. You exist. You shouldn’t have any reason to be jealous.”
