Lil Nas X took us back to the future with the music video for his latest single, “Holiday.” It’s been nearly two years since his last single
, and to those wondering whether he could continue to live up to the hype, he called them out in the lyrics, saying, “They wanna know if I’ll be lastin’. B*tch, even if I started floppin’, there’d be fashion.” And he was certainly right about the fashion the video features Lil Nas X as a sci-fi Santa who completely decked the North Pole out in chrome.
The vibes in the video are immaculate as Lil Nas X goes from Santa to an elf with all the moves to toys trying to make their daring escape. While not a traditional holiday song in any sense of the word, it’s just the kind of cheekiness we’ve come to expect from Lil Nas X and can’t wait to add it to our holiday party playlists. You can dive deep into the world of Lil Nas X’s “Holiday” by watching the full video above.
