Lil Nas X became an unlikely star with his “country-trap” track “Old Town Road” dominating the charts and forcing the industry to think about song classification. After dipping his toe in the country waters, the rising artist teased a rock-tinged track for the masses over the weekend.
As he gears up for his debut album, Lil Nas X has been in promotion mode via his Instagram page, which now has over 1 million followers. With the success of “Old Town Road,” many are anticipating what sound he’s going for next and a track with Ryan Tedder is in the works. Tedder, as some might know, is a singer-songwriter and lead vocalist for OneRepublic.
Taking to Twitter, Lil Nas X let the fans in on the process of the track.
There isn’t much in the way of details on the track, but Nas X did let the cat Tedder cat out of the bag along with a new non-album track “Titanic” that’s out now.
It appears that Swae Lee is also working on Lil Nas X in the studio as well.
