Lil Nas X is doing everything he can to change his tune, so don’t even TRY to talk to him about the biggest #1 song of all time — ’cause if you do, he’s got a one-word answer for you.
We got Lil Nas Thursday night outside NYC’s Soho Grand Hotel and asked him about securing a CMA nomination this week for “Old Town Road.” You’d think it’s kind of a big deal — getting a nod for Musical Event of the Year … especially considering the country music industry hasn’t exactly embraced his monster hit.
But, check out the clip … Lil Nas seemed to downplay the achievement.
As for why the man who just had the #1 song in the country for a record-setting 19 weeks doesn’t wanna talk about it? Seems he’s fully on to the next. Watch the clip and count how many times he says “Panini” … his follow-up track to “Old Town Road.”
Fact is, no one sets out to be a one-hit wonder, and LNX is working overtime to make sure he doesn’t end up in that category. We’ve got 2 words for him: smart businessman.
And, there’s a shout-out here for Joe Jonas. Sorry Joe, you’re gonna have to do a different remix if ya wanna get with Lil Nas.
