Lil Nas X is known for pushing the boundaries, but his latest release has a few fans confused.
Lil Nax X dropped the audio for ‘C7osure’ last week and took to social media over the weekend (30.06.2019) to push fans to check out the new track. In his tweet, he said “some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more. but before this month ends I want y’all to listen closely to c7osure. ”
The lyrics of the track are telling and give an honest offering from the ‘Old Town Road’ rapper. In the lyrics, he sings: “True say, I want and I need; To let go, Use my time to be free; It’s like it’s always what you like, It’s always what you like; Why it’s always what you like? It’s always what you like, huh”
Lil Nas X took to Twitter clarifying that he thought his sexual orientation was quite obvious based on his clothes, and lyrical choices. The announcement came as Pride Month (a month in celebration of the LGBTQI community) ended Sunday (30.06.2019).
And now that he has made it clear that he is attracted to the same sex, hip-hop fans have been quick to make it clear that he’s big surprise has nothing to do with his music. Instead, some have pointed out that his talent and abilities speak for himself.
I really don’t think it mattered….. you are loved still

Atlanta-born and raised, the 20-year-old is keen to live in his truth, no matter the consequences.
A previous report by The Sauce stated Lil Nas X ‘s first major release ‘Old Country Road’ made history on the charts. “The country trap song made more than 143 million streams in the US last week. The hit song has now shattered a streaming record previously held by Grammy Award-winning Canadian rapper Drake for his 2018 hit ‘In My Feelings,’ according to Nielsen Music numbers published by Billboard.”
