Lil Nas X has officially dropped one song off his upcoming album "7". The track is titled "Panini".
This highly anticipated track is a follow-up to his hit single “Old Town Road.” He partnered with producer group, Take A Daytrip and credits Nirvana’s song “In Bloom”.
“Panini” reciprocates the same melody as the song “In Bloom” by Nirvana. In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Lil Nas X says “One of the craziest things about ‘Panini,’ is it introduced me to Nirvana’s album ‘Nevermind’...It’s like I always have seen the cover but I never actually listened to it. And people were like, ‘Wow, he sampled Nirvana.’ I was like, no. It’s like, I didn’t realize I was using almost the exact same melody.” This song also references a character from the Cartoon Network show “Chowder”.
Lil Nas X’s EP opens with the hit single remixed by Billy Ray Cyrus, “Old Town Road” followed by his self released 2018 project “NASARATI.”
