Lil Nas X can't get enough of lighting up the stage and entertaining fans with good music. The American rapper, singer, songwriter posted on Instagram Stories yesterday a selfie with a posed question, "Who's ready for new bangers in 2020?"

The rapper is seen in a grocery store and enticing the fans with two possible answers to his question: "Me", and "Me, but in red", ergo the latter is indeed in red text.

This may come as a surprising announcement to fans as the rapper has just concluded a jam-packed year of performances and a tour, some of which included shows in Las Vegas, San Francisco, Dallas, Canada and more.

The rapper has become markedly recognized in the industry with his release of 'Old Town Road', which surprised many listeners and viewers of the music video as it featured country legend Billy Ray Cyrus.

The song shocked its audience as it perfectly fused together two greatly different themes with finesse, skill and a dash of humor: American country/cowboy culture with African-American rap culture.


According to Billboard, 'Old Town Road' is now regarded as the fastest song to receive the RIAA-certified diamond plaque. Due to the song's success, the rapper scored six nominations at the 2020 Grammys, including Record of the Year (for the first “OTR” remix with Billy Ray Cyrus), Album of the Year (The '7' debut EP released in June, 2019) and Best New Artist.

Lil Nas X appears to be experimenting with different ideas and cinematics as evident from his catchy, cyberpunk-themed 'Panini' music video. The artist is taking the world by storm quickly, and if he is hinting at new songs and if they are anything remotely as promising as "Old Town Road", it is surely gonna be an event to keep ears wide open for.
