Lil Nas X done did it again.
On Friday, the Grammy-winning artist released his latest video for his single “Industry Baby” and he’s bringing all the sexy that you can handle, Billboard reports.
Over a smoking hot track produced by Kanye West and Take a Daytrip and featuring a guest verse from Jack Harlow, “Industry Baby” is poised to take its rightful place as another summer anthem.
Opening with a mock Supreme Court scene that spoofs his recent Satan shoes controversy with Nike, Lil Nas X plays multiple roles in the video including the judge, defense attorney, the prosecutor, a jury member, and he takes the stand to defend himself against all the accusations levied at him. After he’s found guilty, Lil Nas X is sentenced to five years in Montero State Prison. But not for the shoes — for being gay.
Without question, a nude Lil Nas X is aiming at all his homophobic haters with his provocative, stunning visual and with his lyrics on the hook.
“I told you long ago on the road/I got what they waiting for/I don’t run from nothing, dog/Get your soldiers, tell ’em I ain’t layin’ low/You was never really rooting for me anyway/When I’m back up at the top, I wanna hear you say/He don’t run from nothin’, dog/Get your soldiers, tell ’em that the break is over,” Nas sings on the chorus.
Throughout the video, Lil Nas X brings that heat while in prison with sexy choreography surrounded by dancers also sporting their birthday suits.
By the end of the video, Lil Nas X and Harlow break everyone out of prison and they celebrate their liberation with another fire dance routine right outside the gates of the prison.
Lil Nas X took to Twitter on Thursday night to share his anticipation for the release of the video.
"I wrote a song for us," his tweet read. "I know sometimes you feel like it's all downhill from here. I know your sexuality has made you feel like an outcast amongst your peers. I know going from having the biggest song in the world to being trapped in your apartment is weighing heavy on you. And I know if you hear the phrase 'one hit wonder' one more time you might combust. But I need you to keep going."

"I need you to realize that you have the opportunity to be the person that you needed growing up. I need you to stop feeling sorry for yourself. And I need you to remember that the only person who has to believe in YOU is YOU,” he continued.
"Industry Baby" will be available on Lil Nas X's debut album Montero.
