Lil Nas X didn’t want to let pride month end without coming out. He announced the news by pointing to the lyrics of “C7osure” from his new 7 EP. “some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more,” he wrote. “but before this month ends i want y’all to listen closely to c7osure.” The tweet includes a rainbow emoji.
Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” has been the No. 1 song in the U.S. since April, breaking streaming records previously set by Drake and holding off two different new Taylor Swift singles. His EP 7 debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 this week behind the new Raconteurs LP. Lil Nas X tweeted to Third Man Records, “congrats!!!”
