The singer will release this Friday 12 his new song “J Christ” after a brief hiatus since 2022
Lil Nas X has always been polemic with his videos and lyrics, and has touched the religious topic in some of his music through his career. The most memorable song might be “Montero”. On it’s music video, the singer lapdances the devil and ends up killing him and proclaims himself as the King of the hell.
The new song was announced long time ago and the artist has been updating his fans on his social media. “My new single is dedicated to the man who had the greatest comeback of all time!” he wrote on his social to announce his comeback.
He started with a drawn illustration of him praying where you can read “In the name of the father, the son and the holy spirit, amen”. Besides that, Lil Nas wrote on the captions: “New song and visual next week! – Official art dropping soon.”
That gave the first hint to his fans about the theme of the song. They answered the artist, making “LIL NAS X IS COMING” trending topi con X (better known as twitter). Moreover, the fans made a meme where they put fake and funny quotes of celebrities like Beyoncé or Taylor Swift about the return to music of Lil Nas.
Another surprise was when he finally confirmed that it was collaborating with the singer Kesha. She went on the streets with a cardboard where it was written “New music coming soon”. On the other side, Lil Nas X did the same thing but with “What she said!” wrote this time. After that, he put both photos together on his Twitter account. By the moment, we don’t know if it’s on “J Christ” or another song.
Last January 8 he released the official cover for the song and all the details on his social media. Below the picture, he wrote: “MY NEW SINGLE IS DEDICATED TO THE MAN WHO HAD THE GREATEST COMEBACK OF ALL TIME! J CHRIST – JANUARY 12, 2024 00:00 EST BE THERE!”
After that post, the haters jumped off to twitter to criticize it. The Christians took the reference as an offense. The singer’s fans took the lead to defense their idol with references to another artists that had also used the Jesus image for their songs and blamed it on homophobia.
Lil Nas X kept posting videos and pictures referencing the song and confirmed that this Friday 12 we will enjoy also a new music video. He also took the opportunity to promote his old videos.
Lil Nas X is the first one this year publishing new music, alongside with Ariana Grande that has announced her first single after 4 years called “yes, and?”.
