Lil Nas X is already looking forward to the future.
After securing back to back Billboard Top 10 singles with “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” and “Industry Baby” featuring Jack Harlow, the two-time Grammy Award-winner revealed on Twitter Friday (August 6) he’s going back to the time period which made him a household name as soon as his long-awaited new album is done.
“after i drop the album i will be finish with my gay era and returning to my cowboy era,” he wrote.
The “cowboy era” for Lil Nas X refers to 2019’s “Old Town Road.” The Billy Ray Cyrus featured single initially started as a SoundCloud loosie released in 2018 before being propelled to international fame through remixes, performances and more. The song has been certified 14 times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, the highest certification in the 69-year history of the institution.
