It hasn’t even been a year since his debut studio album Montero was released and changed the world, but Lil Nas X is already (almost) back on the scene with more music and videos for us to go wild over. And though he's only barely been back on social media after reactivating his Twitter for the first time since December, he’s already teasing new songs!
In a new video, captioned “Lean on My Body,” (which could be the name of the song) that the Grammy winner posted to his TikTok and Twitter, he’s rapping over a keyboard beat while he walks shirtless on a treadmill. “You know I love you, so I say this shit with love/But please tell your fans they need to shut the f*** up,” he raps with his well-deserved swagger.
God, I know it’s only a minute-long clip, but we are absolutely obsessed with this song. Just the way X raps the word “labia” is enough to make it an instant classic. But of course, he doesn’t stop there, and throws in bars about his nephew beating up classmates for making fun of him and turning lemons into lemonade.
He’s already got us going crazy in the club to this new snippet of an unreleased track! “Now listen, I ain’t saying I condone that s**t/f**k it, yeah I’ll say it, I condone that s**t,” he spits and we can’t help but sing along.
Not only that, but he’s working out shirtless, showing off his abs and chest in the way that he does best. This is real icon behavior.
So far, he’s teased a couple of songs off the upcoming project, including “Late to the Party” featuring Youngboy, and “Down Souf Hoes” featuring Saucy Santana. We don’t know what either will sound like, except for that “Down Souf Hoes” will be “a strip club anthem” according to another tweet from him.
We really are living in the best possible world if it means that we’re getting more Lil Nas X music this soon. He’s truly a blessing to the whole world. He’s even tweeted that his new album is “close to finished”!!! Can we be so lucky???
Next up, Lil Nas X is set to perform with Jack Harlow at the upcoming Grammy Awards, where he’s nominated for four awards including Best Music Video, and Record and Song of the Year. The Grammys take place Sunday, April 3 on CBS.
