Not even 24 hours after its release, the music video for Lil Nas X’s highly-anticipated single “Holiday” has already garnered over 1.5 million views. The Christmas-themed song is the rapper’s first official single in over a year following his 2019 debut EP and record-breaking success with “Old Town Road.”
The CR Men cover star dressed as a futuristic Santa Claus from the year 2220 for the song’s intricately animated cover art and music video. This isn’t a Hallmark movie Christmas song, though; Lil Nas X’s signature hip-hop flare infuses the genre with modernity and a dark form of fun.
That’s what he’s known for: combining musical genres to transform the rap space in ways we’ve never seen. His country/rap hit “Old Town Road” disregarded the stiff,unspoken codes surrounding rap and rap artists, prioritizing fun and fantasy.
Lil Nas X hasn’t announced a release date for his debut album, but “Holiday” is its first single, a treat to fans who have heard snippets and teasers of unreleased Lil Nas X songs on the rapper’s social media for months in anticipation.END
