2021 Year in Review: Lil Nas X Had the Best Year Ever

Published: Tuesday 28th Dec 2021 by Rashad

For the good, bad, ugly, or downright shocking, 2021 was full of memorable moments!

Now, as the year draws to a close, That Grape Juice is reflecting on the occasions that rocked – and to some degree maybe even reshaped – the Urban and Pop cultural landscape as we know it.

Next, we’re discussing why Lil Nas X was easily the year’s most talked about musical act.

He may have ended 2020 being written off by many due to the modest commercial performance of his single, ‘Holiday,’ but little did any of us know the jaw-dropping antics the GRAMMY winner had up his sleeve.

A masterclass in marketing, the singer-songwriter’s entire debut album era – ‘Montero’ – put any doubts about his commercial viability in reverse thanks to one of music history’s most controversial campaigns yet.

Look below to see the highlights that made 2021 LNX’s best yet.

    “Had a moment but it came and went”

  2. Big Nas XXX December 29, 2021

    Lil Nas XXX began the year promoting his kid’s book on “The View.” A few months later he was f****** Satan in his bloody shoes, while saying “f*** your kids” on The Breakfast Club.

    NOW he’s dropping nudes while promoting a teen Cash App and tweeting about how he sneezed on his d*** over the weekend. Nas loves the kids 😈

    I guess at least Obama co-signed… GOOD LUCK MONTERO

    He had a good run and I hope he saved the money.
