Lil Nas X fans, rejoice!
The 21-year-old rapper announced that he is set to make his triumphant return to the music scene with his upcoming release, “Holiday” — which he revealed with the help of Michael J. Fox on Sunday evening.
First teased in a commercial during the New Orleans Saints game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the promo finds Lil Nas X traveling back in time on horseback to the tune of his record-breaking smash hit, “Old Town Road.” As he rides through a Western town, the singer watches as Santa gets thrown out of a bar after too many drinks.
As he picks up Santa’s hat from the ground, the label within it changes from “Santa Claus” to “Santa Nas X,” as another message, “You are the new Santa,” reads on a second label below.
Lil Nas X’s horse then morphs into a reindeer as he transforms into Santa before he flies off on a sleigh as a preview of his upcoming track — which drops on Friday — plays. The clip ends with a short appearance from Fox, 59, channeling his Back to the Future character of Marty McFly, where he warns Lil Nas X, “Whatever you do Nas, don’t go to 2020.”
