On Sunday, World Pride Day, Lil Nas X had an important announcement to make via Twitter.
Lil Nas X Comes Out
In a tweet, the “Old Town Road” hitmaker urged his fans and followers to listen to his song “C7osure” and to hone in on the lyrics more closely.
“Some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not [going to f— with me] no more. But before this month ends I want y’all to listen closely to c7osure”
He captioned the tweet together with a hodgepodge of emojis including a rainbow. The tweet also had a clip of the said song.
“C7osure” has Lil Nas X singing about wanting to live a more authentic life and to move on without regrets. The verse goes:
True say, I want and I need to let go, use my time to be free
Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow
No more red light for me baby, only green, I gotta go
Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take ahold
This is what I gotta do, can’t be regrettin’ when I’m old.
He also followed that up with another tweet that zooms in on the album artwork of his EP.
