With the wildly viral hit “Old Town Road” topping the Hot 100 for an eighth week, all eyes are currently on Lil Nas X and his next move.
The 20-year-old recently took to social media to unveil the illustrative cover art, along with some other key details surrounding his forthcoming 7 project. “8 songs will be on the EP! NEXT MONTH,” he wrote of the effort’s June release date. “I’m tryna make a visualizer (video) for every song on the ep and tryna work with upcoming animators on each one.”
The Atlanta native went on to jokingly troll Drake by remaking the Canadian’s infamous 2013 Nothing Was The Same cover. “I’ve decide to title the album ‘nothing was the same.’ Here’s the artwork my team and i worked very hard on,” Nas X quipped. “Peep how I’m looking up and drake looking straight ahead. also notice the different hues of blue. they look nothing alike. people be reaching when u at the top.” Aside from the fake out, he dropped the real visual which can be seen below. Stay tuned for more regarding Lil Nas X’s upcoming EP.
