Is Lil Nas X In Trouble With Sony Music

Taking to Soundcloud on Friday (3.29), Lil Nas X surprise-dropped a demo for “Light Again” with the musician rapping, backed by a house beat.

Joking on X that his record company, Columbia Records, might take umbridge at the unofficial release, the superstar artist took to TikTok with “Ngl might get in trouble for releasing this song without [my] label’s permission but anyway,” and adding “Sorry Columbia!” on X.

“I’m way too toned, let me tone down/My dick too big, so I’m cocky, hit him from the back while I’m twiddlin’ with my phone out.” “Got an M&M deal but I’m Hershey/6’2″ dark skin n— with a purpose,” he raps on the track’s second verse.

For some time now, the rapper/writer (born Montero Lamar Hill) has been teasing “Light Again” sharing a video of him voguing to the track’s outro back in February. “I don’t like Lil Nas music but this gone be a classic, I’m sorry,” he wrote over a video of him lip-syncing to the song earlier this month.

“Light Again” follows “Where Do We Go Now?” from his Long Live Monterodocumentary, and the controversial release of “J. Christ.” with cover art depicting Lil Nas nailed on a cross. (“Light Again” coincidentally arrived on Good Friday.) The visual for “J. Christ” opened with a bunch of celebrity lookalikes with a bare minimum resemblance to Taylor Swift, Barack Obama, Oprah, Kanye West, and Ed Sheeran.

“J. Christ” marked the beginning of a new album cycle for Lil Nas X, who dropped his hit debut LP, Montero, in 2022. He also joined Skaiwater on “Light!” last week.
