Last year, Lil Nas X dropped his headline-making album, Montero. That project boasted megahits like “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” “Industry Baby” featuring Jack Harlow, and also included assists from Megan Thee Stallion, Miley Cyrus, Elton John, and Doja Cat. Today (June 24), the pop sensation returns to present his brand new single “Late To Da Party.” The freshly released track opens up with a bold declaration that refers to his recent sentiments about not being nominated for any BET Awards this year:
Yeah, fuck BET (They know that), yeah (They know that)/ Lick it all up (Mhm, mm) slurp it (Mhm, ah), make it sloppy/ Look at how I top shit, bitch, I just put like three up in the top ten and I don’t need nobody, I just need these CCs on my body/ Everything I do, bitch, right or wrong, gon’ make a profit/ Read about it I don’t even got to sing about it
Just before the song’s release, Lil Nas X released the official song trailer which included a message in the video regarding the song’s meaning. “NBA YOUNGBOY is on house arrest,” reads the Star Wars style floating text. “Trapped on the isolated planet HATU. The brutal empire of Terror (BET) has betrayed LIL NAS X, turning their back on him after using him for clout. With the music industry in turmoil, the galaxy is looking for a new hero. NAS must use the ancient power of VIDEO EDITING to free YB and defeat the evil BET before time runs out…”
In additional news, Lil Nas X will kick off his first official tour in September, taking his talents across the globe with the “Long Live Montero Tour.”
