Lil Nas X teases new music on Instagram, excited fans say 'drop that s**t' and demand a Rosalia collaboration
Lil Nas X fans have jumped aboard the hype train as the star artiste has teased brand new music on his social media. The Grammy-winning rapper and singer-songwriter shared a short video via his Instagram on Thursday, July 9 with a snippet of new music.
In the clip we see Lil Nas X singing along to an upbeat song while driving in his car. With lyrics such as "Call me when you want. Call me when you need," he captioned video 'Call me by your name' (shared on both his Instagram and Twitter posts), which might even be the title of the track.
Fans on Twitter are having a meltdown over the new music. One fan described the snippet as "so fire" while another wrote, "DROP THAT S**T!" One fan says, "I have replayed this 1000 times already." Fans have already picked out artistes for a collaboration with one saying, "We need Rosalía on this track omg." Other requests are for Nicki Minaj or Camila Cabello as featured guest artistes.
For those who need an introduction to the enormously successful artist, Lil Nas X, born Montero Lamar Hill, is commonly known for his breakout hit, the country rap single 'Old Town Road' which featured Billy Ray Cyrus in the popular remix version. 'Old Town Road' took the crown at No 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and remained there for nineteen weeks, becoming the longest-running No 1 song since the chart debuted in 1958. The song climbed the music charts internationally as well in 2019 and became diamond certified by November of that same year.
Due to the groundbreaking success of 'Old Town Road', many fans since its release have been craving to hear a full-length album. Earlier this week, the singer revealed that his debut forthcoming album is near completion and that he is additionally working on a mixtape. He has been also been allowing fans to contribute to the project where producers can submit their beats. If you want a much more detailed idea of when his debut LP will release, Nas X has noted, "ALBUM: 92% DONE" in his Twitter bio.
