Lil Nas X is setting his sights on the Christmas charts and he’s enlisted the help of Back to the Future star Michael J Fox, as he gears up to drop his first festive track.
The rapper, who topped the charts with his hit Old Town Road last year and even won a Grammy Award for his efforts, has now confirmed that he’ll be bringing out a Christmas single called Holiday.
He chose the New Orleans Saints football game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers over in the US to announce his exciting news – releasing a trailer, with a surprise cameo from Fox, to give fans a little teaser.
It sees Lil Nas X making his way through an old Western town when he comes across a drunk Santa Claus, who has been chucked out of a saloon bar.
He then picks up Santa’s hat only for it to reveal he has been chosen as ‘the new Santa’, with the clip then panning to Lil Nas X decked out in his new festive gear.
His horse then turns into a sleigh being pulled by reindeers, of course, and he zooms off into the future, as Fox warns him: ‘Whatever you do Nas, don’t go to 2020.’
If anyone knows a thing or two about time travel then it’s going to be Marty McFly (Fox’s Back to the Future character), right?
Teasing that Lil Nas X’s adventures as Santa are set ‘to be continued’, the trailer revealed that Holiday will be officially dropping on November 13.
If Lil Nas X wants to nab that Christmas number one for himself, he better be prepared for some stiff competition, as Mariah Carey (aka the Queen of Christmas tunes) has teased she could be collaborating on a festive treat with Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson.
The All I Want For Christmas Is You hit-maker had fans convinced that another holiday hit is on its way, as Mariah tweeted a picture of three set chairs with the initials MC, AG and JH printed on the back of them alongside a Christmas tree emoji.
That was all it took to send fans into overdrive, with one excited fan tweeting: ‘MARIAH CAREY ARIANA GRANDE AND JENNIFER HUDSON ARE COLLABORATING ON A CHRISTMAS SONG, GET THE F**K UP THIS IS THE COLLAB OF THE CENTURY.’
Another posted: ‘Mariah carey, jennifer hudson, & ariana grande collabing to save 2020 this christmas. (sic)’
Here’s hoping, eh.
