Earlier this week, the chart-topping rapper and social media mogul announced the release date for his highly anticipated record, with his ethereal single artwork.
Sun Goes Down follows in the footsteps of his hit electro-rap anthem MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name).
The track debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his second song to reach the pole position in the United States after Old Town Road, which made history as the longest-running number-one song on the chart.
MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) also topped the charts in the UK, Ireland, Canada, France and Australia and reached the top 10 in several other territories.
Lil Nas X is set to be extremely busy over the next few months.
It was recently announced that Lil Nas X will make his SNL debut as he performs the number one bop, as well as another cut from his upcoming debut album MONTERO, which we can assume is Sun Goes Down.
The Old Town Road rapper is also expected to drop his long-awaited album this summer, which will include MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name), Sun Goes Down and his festive hit Holiday.
Lil Nas X is continuing to keep us fed and busy, we stan.
