The song is an earworm tune, is danceable, and has a way of lifting your mood. It’s a must-have for those holiday playlists and all of your other seasonal playlists because it’s FIRE! We’re positive this song will be another hit for Lil Nas X to add to his resume.
‘Holiday’ also comes with an accompanying music video, and we get to watch the man himself take over the North Pole. He becomes Santa Claus, elves, Jack Frost, and even an action figure of himself. We think that’s pretty dope, and we would high-key buy that action figure if we could. It’s very theatrical and over-the-top, but that’s the signature of Lil Nas X, and it wouldn’t be half as fun without it. Check out the cinematic video below!
Lil Nas X talked with Zane Lowe at Apple Music about the song, saying:
…Tay Keith did just whip this up for me. This song actually started in February. All the way back in February. But at first it was just melodies over a beat. Then it took until summertime till I’m like, “Okay, boom. Let’s do this. Let’s do this.” We always had ‘HOLIDAY’ as a name and then we brought us to this point where you see me just dressed like this to really give it a mood.

And he further went on to talk about his upcoming album (which we are beyond stoked for), saying:
A hint, a hint, a hint a hint. Hm. Very, very popular singer, male, and he’s a record breaker. Okay, that’s all I have. I will say about this album though, I kept features to a minimum. I just feel like I really want to give people me and just me on some of these, because I feel like, especially with singles last time, I always followed up with a feature or a remix. And it’s like, “Okay, no, here’s my song. It’s just me here. You’re going to love this. Here you go.” And some songs I honestly just feel like, okay, this doesn’t need anything else.

Lil Nas X also talked to Zane Lowe about his long break since ‘Old Town Road,’ and you can bet we’ll be getting more Lil Nas sooner rather than later!
I want to say this. With this album, with everything, I’m never taking a long break again. You probably from now on, at least for the next decade, you’re never going to go more than four or five months without a new Lil Nas X song or feature. Yeah, let’s say that. Let’s say that.

We’re so hyped and ready for anything he throws at us. We’re glad to have you back, Lil Nas! Let’s get more dope music flowing, and we wish you loads of success! Don’t forget to take the single with you wherever you go!
