Lil Nas X has been one of the biggest artists in the world this spring yet again, as well as one of the biggest trending topics from his social media posts. He had a lot of momentum heading into 2021 as in December, he put out his “Holiday” single, which was another song that did very well for him and went platinum. In March, Nas X brought controversy as well due to him being seen twerking on Satan in his “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” music video.
Nas X Created Controversy With ‘Satan Shoes’ As Well
In addition to the “Montero” music video, Nas X went on to release his pair of custom Nike Air Max 97 “Satan Shoes” at the end of March. He sold 666 pairs of these for $1,018 with MSCHF, and that resulted in a lawsuit from Nike. MSCHF was hit with trademark infringement and a settlement was soon reached, as no more of these sneakers were allowed to be sold anymore. The Satan Shoes also contained a satanic emblem on the front and blood on the soles of them.
Nas X Is Celebrating Pride Month
Nas X is also now enjoying Pride Month, as that kicked off on June 1. He also decided to share photos from a photo shoot that he recently finished in celebration of this month. He was seen in a purple shirt, a pink background, along with a myriad of balloons behind him as well. Nas X also held these balloons with a big smile, as his caption in this post read “Happy Pride Month,” which included a Pride flag and a white heart.
Nas X Is Also Fresh Off His New ‘Sun Goes Down’ Single
In May, Nas X wasn’t done putting out new singles consistently as then, he released his “Sun Goes Down” record. This received a lot of positive reviews along with the music video, which was put out in the same night. This was a unique sound that Nas X experimented with, much to the delight of fans, as many of them agreed that this was another huge hit for him. This has also been a consistent trend for him since 2019, when he broke out as a star with his “Old Town Road” single.
Nas X’s Debut Album Expected To Arrive This Summer
Nas X is also expected to finally release his debut studio album this summer. Back in late March, he revealed that the title would be “Montero: The Album,” but it’s still unclear if that is still the plan. Nonetheless, many believe it will easily be the number one album in the US. Nas X’s last project was his “7” EP in the summer of 2019. That ended up debuting at number 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and is platinum in the US.
