Hot 100: Lil Nas X Nabs 4th Top 40 Hit with ‘Holiday’

Published: Friday 27th Nov 2020 by Rashad

From horses and now to sleighs, Lil Nas X is no stranger to riding his way to the top of charts.  And, with new single, ‘Holiday’ – the first release from his forthcoming debut studio album – he looks poised to keep the trips coming.

See what we mean inside:

After ample teasing, November 13 brought with it the official unwrapping of the jaw-dropping ‘Holiday’ music video. Directed by Gibson Hazard, the futuristic clip sees X (born Montero Hill) portray a crazed Santa, energetic elf, and more with elaborate costuming and digital effects to match.

The critical acclaim afforded the song and its accompanying visual has been matched by a promising commercial response as it premiered at #37 on the refreshed Hot 100 – a feat accomplished thanks to a handsome mix of streams, radio airplay, and digital downloads.

Marking his fourth time visiting the top 40 of the tally, the win follows Hill songs ‘Old Town Road’ (#1), ‘Panini’ (#5), and ‘Rodeo’ (#22).  Not only did all three peak in the same chart realm as ‘Holiday,’ but also went on to be certified Platinum or higher by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

  7. Ace Blanks November 27, 2020

    I just don’t get it! Like wow! People really have horrible taste in music these days! Lol Kudos to him I guess but still not a fan AT ALL! I give him props for the STIFF choreo that he at least tries to do like he’s really trying but this is what being an “artist” has been reduced to now! Lol A joke!

  8. Your Mother November 28, 2020

    #37 is not a win, it will only get worse. The song and video is trash and the whole verse about being a bottom in a Holiday song is just wrong and nasty.

  9. NoLie November 28, 2020

    Lord they gonna ma

  10. NoLie November 28, 2020

    Lord they gonna make an example out this poor boy smh

  11. Q November 28, 2020
