While we are still reveling – or recovering, it depends on which side of the divide you are on, in the release of “Old Town Road”, a controversial song from Lil Nas X released a while back, the rapper has come through with a new song titled “Panini” and he killed it on this one.
Lil Nas X is getting ready for an album release and recently collaborated with Cardi B on “Rodeo” which was itself a controversial move since some fans think that the release date was designed to mess with Nicki Minaj‘s “Megatron” project release on the same day.
Do not be deceived by the title though, Lil Nas X has already said that the song is not about a sandwich and will also not come through as a country song unlike “Old Town Road” and the reactions that trailed its release.
Talking about this song coming after the huge success that “Old Town Road” was and of course the attempt to cast him as just a country rapper, Lil Nas X said: “We got another song together (Daytrip) ‘Rodeo’ — like I love how when I went into the studio it wasn’t like an immediate, cause like a lot of people, they hear ‘Old Town Road’ you know, and they think, you know, this is the only thing we want to do. That’s what you think you want, but you don’t know what you want until you hear it.”
This year alone, Lil Nas X has released “Kick It”, “Bring U Down”, “F9mily” and more and as he adds this one, we recommend listening.
