Lil Nas X has finally returned with a brand-new song, “Holiday,” his first solo release since his 2019 debut EP 7.
The single was produced by Tay Keith and hitmaking duo Take a Daytrip, who previously worked on Lil Nas’ chart-smashing songs “Panini” and “Rodeo.” “Holiday” dropped alongside an equally festive visual that stars the rapper as Santa Claus.
In the clip, Santa Nas puts his little elves—or in this case, little robots—to work as they ready all the presents in time for Christmas Day. “Ayy, it’s a holiday,” the rapper declares on the opening. “I got hoes on hoes and they outta control, yeah / Ayy, it’s another way / All my n***as on go and I hope that you know it.”
Last month, Lil Nas teased he has new music on the way, including a track called “Call Me By Your Name.” The rapper previously announced that his as-yet-untitled debut album is almost complete and that he also has a mixtape on the horizon.
