Lil Nas X’s resurrection is underway in 2024.
Marking the dawn of his next era, the multi-platinum, chart-topping, award-winning artist is back with his first new single in two years, “J CHRIST”. The song was co-written by Lil Nas X a.k.a. Montero Hill with Omer Fedi, Mike Levy [Gesaffelstein], and Blake Slatkin, with production by Fedi, Gesaffelstein, and Lil Nas X.
The multihyphenate, innovator, and insurgent premiered the song’s official video, which marks Lil Nas X’s solo directorial debut and follows a story he wrote himself. The gleefully subversive “J CHRIST” visual sees Nas slaying both the gates of heaven (alongside some major celebrity cameos) and the fires of hell. After an inner battle plays out, he claims victory over evil and chooses his path forward, the path of faith, and sails through a flooded rapture.
As for those doubting which direction Lil Nas X has chosen, he proudly proclaims “THIS WAY,” choosing to express his spirituality in his own way. He’s forging a new life for himself while nodding to the journey that led him here, complete with homage to his iconic music video for “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)”. Nas has ultimately ushered in a new beginning, and we have now arrived at DAY ZERO of this chapter.
