Industry Baby

Lil Nas X dishes on his thoughts and motivations behind his hit single Industry Baby: “I felt like, with [Industry Baby], I was able to be as confident as I want to be.” The singer adds, “This is my underdog anthem, and when people listen to it, it will get them hyped up! It has a feel-good vibe to it. I’m happy to have that song on the album.”

Lil Nas X Impact

When it comes to Lil Nas X and his music, he wants to make an impact. The singer shares with VMAN, “I want everyone to be left with feeling like they’ve learned more about me and through learning more about me, somehow they’ve learned more about themselves. I want the takeaway to be that it’s okay to be yourself, and I mean every aspect of your true self.”
