The track follows the release of Nas X’s new track “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”.
The video sparked controversy thanks to its blasphemous themes and depiction of Satan.
Nas X addressed critics of the video on Twitter and alluded to the video being a protest against homophobia in religion.
Along with animated scenes. The artist is shown pole dancing in the video and giving Satan a lap dance.
Lil Nas X tweeted: “I spent my entire teenage years hating myself because of the shit y’all preached would happen to me because I was gay. So I hope u are mad, stay mad, feel the same anger you teach us to have towards ourselves.”
Nas X added: “There was no system involved. I made the decision to create the music video. I am an adult. I am not gonna spend my entire career trying to cater to your children. That is your job.
“There is a mass shooting every week that our government does nothing to stop. Me sliding down a CGI pole isn’t what’s destroying society.”
The video is currently trending on YouTube and follows the release of “Holiday”back in 2020.
