Lil Nas X taps the “Press” rapper for his single.
After much hype surrounding the release of his latest album 7, Lil Nas X finally dropped off his 18-minute EP. The length of the record left many fans wanting just a tad bit more, as none of the eight tracks made it to three minutes. The second longest song on the record was Lil Nas X’s collaboration with Cardi B: “Rodeo.” Cardi and Billy Ray Cyrus are the only features on the record and, coincidentally, they’re both on Western-style tracks.
“Rodeo” brings more of a hip hop vibe with Cardi’s aggressive rap addition, but with only two verses, there’s much to be left for listeners. 7 itself doesn’t follow any conventional method as Lil Nas X created an album with an assortment of genre-flavors, so it can only be expected that each track follows suit. In a chat with Zane Lowe for Apple Music Beats 1, Lil Nas X talked about 7 and what it means for him as an artist. “With this, I want you to make sure you’re listening to every single thing,” he said. “You can’t just listen and be on your phone the whole time because you might miss something.”
