This has to be one of the most unique holiday seasons for all of us. At The Honey Pop, we’re glad that we can bring in the holiday season with Lil Nas X! This past week, Lil Nas X dropped the news that he is booked with Roblox for a special collaboration and busy with his new ‘Holiday’ track. The spectacular and festive weekend that Lil Nas X has planned for his fans is one that we’re anticipating.
As a lover of games, Lil Nas X’s newest collaboration is one that is nothing short of surprising. Roblox, the global online gaming platform, decided to partner with Columbia Records and Lil Nas X to launch the first-ever exclusive virtual concert on the platform. Lil Nas X will be performing his iconic songs on the stage while also having visual graphics inspired by his music videos. The concert will start on November 14th at 1:00 p.m. PST.
“We’re throwing the biggest virtual concert of 2020, and I hope everybody in the world can come check it out,” said Lil Nas X about the concert. “I feel very lucky to be the first artist to ever do this on Roblox. We had so much fun putting this together for my fans, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
In addition to this fun new collaboration, Lil Nas X also revealed that he’ll be dropping a new single called ‘Holiday’. ‘Holiday’ will reveal a whole new side of Lil Nas X as he turns into Santa Claus for the special song. Michael J. Fox, from Back To The Future, will make a special cameo in the music video as well! The song will be available worldwide on November 13th and Lil Nas X will perform it for the first time live at the Roblox concert!
Columbia Records, Lil Nas X, and Roblox also have things lined-up for friends before the concert live stream. The concert venue will have mini-games and other activities that users can explore between now and the first pre-show event on Friday, November 13th at 4:00 p.m. PST. That pre-show event will be an exclusive Q&A with Lil Nas X. We’re curious about where some of those questions would come from? Hm, Twitter, maybe? We’ll see when we check it out on Friday! You can also access a virtual store that’ll be offering exclusive merch!
If you’re new to Roblox, you’ll have to create an account to attend the event. Existing Roblox users can enter here.
While these gaming concerts are unique and new to the industry, we can’t wait to see what doors will be opened for newer artists. We’re always excited about the evolution of music and even more excited when our favorite industries collide. In the mean-time, let’s enjoy our holiday season with some Lil Nas X.
