Lil Nas X on Rising Success, VMAs, New EP ‘7’ | SWAY’S UNIVERSE
Fresh off his VMA debut, Lil Nas X joined Sway’s Universe recapping the rise of his breakthrough year, and what’s to follow next. With two wins and nine nominations at the 2019 VMAs for ‘Old Town Road (Remix),’ the Georgia-native says that he’s pushing the head start he got to the fullest potential. Breaking records for the longest-running No.1 single, being acclaimed by Mariah Carey and other high-profile artists, it has been a humbling experience, which Lil Nas X affirms is about “[celebrating] the progress.” Choosing music over school was met with doubt and surprise from his parents, but Lil Nas X is moving through life focused on what’s next and what’s best for him.
