Lil Nas X is back with “Holiday,” a Christmas-themed single with a wacky music video to match.

Co-directed by Nas and Gibson Hazard, the visual takes place on Christmas Day in the year 2220. Lil Nas X portrays four distinct characters within a gigantic, sci-fi Santa’s Workshop at the North Pole. Later, he takes a ride across the United States in a high-tech “sleigh” — a Christmas-red Dodge Challenger — pulled by robotic reindeer, and flies past his own versions of Mount Rushmore, the Hollywood sign, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, and Times Square.

“Holiday” marks Lil Nas X’s first new music release since his 2019 debut EP. He’s expected to perform the song at a virtual concert this Saturday, November 14th, on the children’s video game Roblox.

Nas previously appeared at this year’s virtual GLAAD Media Awards ceremony and was a guest on an episode of the HBO Max Sesame Street spinoff series The Not-Too-Late Show. The rapper co-headlined a four-hour livestream fundraiser for pandemic relief via the Shein phone app, alongside Katy Perry, and he was one of the featured commencement speakers for Facebook’s #Graduation 2020 virtual event, honoring high school and college graduates who were unable to attend in-person ceremonies this May.

Holiday (Lil Nas X) Lyrics

[Intro]
T-T-Tay Keith, Took it to ten (Hey)

[Chorus]
Ayy, it’s a holiday
I got hoes on hoes and they out of control, yeah
Ayy, it’s another one
All my niggas on go and I hope that you know it
I can’t even close my eyes
And I don’t know why, guess I don’t like surprises
I can’t even stay away from the game that I play
They gon’ know us today, yeah

[Verse 1]
Ayy, can I pop shit? (Pop, pop, pop)
I might bottom on the low, but I top shit (But I top shit)
Switch the genre on you hoes, do a rock hit (Mmm)
I got the biggest damn song, fuck the charts, sis, I don’t need ’em

[Pre-Chorus]
They wanna know if I’ll be lastin’
Bitch, even if I started floppin’, there’d be fashion
Poppin’ up in movies, ain’t no Nasy, bitch, it’s Ashton
Hee, hee, I’m bad as Michael Jackson
Dun, dun, dun

>[Chorus]
Ayy, it’s a holiday
I got hoes on hoes and they out of control, yeah
Ayy, it’s another one
All my niggas on go and I hope that you know it
I can’t even close my eyes
And I don’t know why, guess I don’t like surprises
I can’t even stay away from the game that I play
They gon’ know us today, yeah

[Verse 2]
Man, I snuck into the game, came in on a horse
I pulled a gimmick, I admit it, I got no remorse
Nobody tried to let me in, nobody opened doors
I kicked them motherfuckers down, they didn’t have a choice
Dun, dun, dun
They tried to next me, ayy, but I’m blessed, see
Ayy, no flex, but my checks givin’ vet tease
Ayy, and I’m sexy, they wanna sex me
Pop star, but the rappers still respect me

[Pre-Chorus]
They wanna know if I’ll be lastin’
Bitch, even if I started floppin’, there’d be fashion
Poppin’ up in movies, ain’t no Nasy, bitch, it’s Ashton
Hee, hee, I’m bad as Michael Jackson
Dun, dun, dun [Chorus]
Ayy, it’s a holiday
I got hoes on hoes and they out of control, yeah
Ayy, it’s another one
All my niggas on go and I hope that you know it
I can’t even close my eyes
And I don’t know why, guess I don’t like surprises
I can’t even stay away from the game that I play
They gon’ know us today, yeah

[Outro]
Tay Keith, fuck these niggas up
Daytrip took it to ten (Hey)
