It’s been a fast and furious few months since Lil Nas X catapulted onto the pop music scene with his viral hit “Old Town Road,” and he’s now ready to take a break from it all.

While the excitement surrounding the 20-year-old has been of Herculean proportion, Nas X is carving out some time for himself with a quick hiatus from the music industry. “It’s been a wild last 7 months and im ready to take a little time off,” the Georgia native says in the tweet below. “sorry to everyone attending twitchcon or the sandbox music festival, I will not be there. I love u guys and will make it up to you some way.”


Courtesy of Columbia Records, Lil Nas X’s breakout single shot to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for a record-breaking 19 weeks. His new song “Panini” off the 7 EP is now making the rounds and fans hope this break will allow the artist more studio time, or at the very least, a chance to reset after a whirl wind 2019.
