Lil Nas X Unveils Solo Directorial Debut with “J CHRIST”

Multi-platinum artist Lil Nas X has officially marked the dawn of his next era with the release of his first single in two years, “J CHRIST,” out today via Columbia Records.

Co-written by Lil Nas X himself alongside Omer Fedi, Mike Levy (Gesaffelstein), and Blake Slatkin, the song showcases a blend of creativity with production by Fedi, Gesaffelstein, and Lil Nas X.

Accompanying the single is the release of the official video, which not only serves as Lil Nas X’s solo directorial debut but follows a story he crafted. The “J CHRIST” visual is a gleefully subversive journey, featuring Lil Nas X conquering both heaven’s gates and hell’s fires. The video was shot in Mexico City.


As he asserts his faith and sails through a flooded rapture, Lil Nas X proudly declares his chosen direction: “THIS WAY.” The artist is forging a new path, expressing his spirituality uniquely, and signaling a fresh beginning in his musical journey. DAY ZERO of this next chapter has arrived, showcasing Lil Nas X’s evolution and commitment to authenticity in his artistry.
