Lil Nas X dropped his new single, titled “Sun Goes Down,” on Friday, May 21, along with an emotional video for the track.
The “Sun Goes Down” video sees Lil Nas X travel back in time to provide solace and encouragement to his former self as he struggles to come to terms with his sexuality.
“Since ten, I’ve been feelin’ lonely / Had friends but they was pickin’ on me,” Lil Nas X sings. “These gay thoughts would always haunt me / I prayed God would take it from me.”
Lil Nas X had dropped his previous single, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” on March 26. The track debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The video for the song created a huge uproar, however, as it showed the rapper slide down a pole to hell, where he proceeds to give Satan a lap dance.
Lil Nas X performed “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” and “Sun Goes Down” during his appearance as musical guest on the season finale of “Saturday Night Live.”
