Two years ago Lil Nas X made the transition from popular social media user to a record-breaking Grammy winner thanks to the massive success of “Old Town Road.” Since then he’s been relatively quiet on the music front, but pretty much everywhere else since then.
Nas X has now returned to music with his new single, “HOLIDAY,” produced by Tay Keith. “‘HOLIDAY,’ I’m talking about the past year or whatever and all this sh*t that’s… a couple of sh-t that’s been happening. And just establishing where I’m going, where I’m moving, how I’m good no matter what,” he told Zane Lowe of Apple Music about the track. “This song actually started in February, but at first it was just melodies over a beat. Then it took until summertime till I’m like, ‘Okay, boom. Let’s do this. Let’s do this.’ We always had ‘HOLIDAY’ as a name and then we brought us to this point where you see me just dressed like this to really give it a mood.”
A video for the track has been released, which can be seen below.
