The Take A Daytrip-produced single gets the visual treatment.
Lil Nas X has the hit-making formula. Of course, everyone’s familiar with his record-breaking “Old Town Road” single, and all of its accompanying remixes, and the 20-year-old sensation proved his one-hit-wonder transcendence with the likes of “Panini.” Today, Lil Nas X is back with the official video for the latter single.
Taking place in a futuristic land, the Mike Diva-directed video looks like it could be straight out of Tron, replete with neon lights and flying cars. However, as futuristic as the setting appears, it’s decorated by reminders of today’s technological presence: i.e. Uber, Acorn, Beats By Dre., etc. This injection of current trends potentially suggests the cyclical nature of humanity, and how we might think we’re so advanced but really, at the end of the day, we’ve been, and will continue to be, the same species.
