Emerging from the searing controversy over his latest single “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)”, Lil Nas X released his follow-up song “Industry Baby”. The song is a collaboration with rapper Jack Harlow and is co-produced by Kanye West.
Teasing the new song, Lil Nas X released a short film surrounding the controversy over his previous single, which is being hailed as a hymn to the devil by critics. In the teaser video, Lil Nas X faces a court trial.
In “Industry Baby”, Nas X and Jack Harlow boast of their fame in the music industry. They also cater to their enemies who have come to their careers from day one.
The music video for the song delves into the gay rage waging war on Lil Nas X. He literally has nude dancers around him, dancing in the prison shower. And Lil Nas X doesn’t want to miss the party. He is also seen fully naked (only with a little blur of his private parts) dancing alongside other inmates. Jack Harlow is that friend who helps Nas escape.

“Industry Baby” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
Throughout Lil Nas X’s lyrics, he sings about how his enemies can’t stand him and his style, his sexuality. However, the more you play with your enemies, the less they care over time. Resist them and they will keep coming to your chin strap. But if you head towards their path, the enemies have no weapons against you. That’s what Lil Nas X is trying to do right now.
The song is also a huge slap in the face for its enemies. Since the release of his first single “Old Town Road” in 2019, Lil Nas X has been making a big splash.
And this one is for the champions (Ah, ooh)
I ain’t lost since I started, yeah (Ah, ooh)
Funny how you said it was the end, yeah
Lil Nas X was slandered for his display of sexuality in his previous single “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)”. He was slandered for portraying the devil in the clip. He was also slandered for wearing a shoe “inspired” by Satan himself. So Nas X came out with an apology;
Jack Harlow’s verse in the song is as blunt as it gets. He sings his conquests with women while his collaborator rubs shoulders with male prisoners.
