Lil Nas X is returning with new song 'Here We Go!' on Friday

The 'Old Town Road' hitmaker will return with the tune, 'Here We Go!', after fans waited six months for more solo material.

Alongside the artwork, he wrote: "so excited to release the best song of all time this friday! also sorry I’ve been so scared with my art lately. I’m coming around to myself again. I will make you guys very proud.

"HERE WE GO! 6/28 (sic)"

His 'He Knows' collaborator, Camila Cabello, 27, commented: "nature has seasons and so do we. there is no spring without winter. it’s your time to bloom baby!!! (sic)"

The new song samples Axel F's 2005 hit ‘Crazy Frog’ and is one of the tracks used in the upcoming flick ‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F’, starring Eddie Murphy, 63, which hits Netflix on July 3.

The 25-year-old rap star released a pair of singles in January, 'J Christ' and 'Where Do We Go Now'.

He also released the documentary film 'Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero', which profiled his 2022 'Long Live Montero Tour'.

Nas X released his debut album 'Montero' to acclaim in 2021.

Meanwhile, Nas X has been in the studio with PinkPantheress.

The music star - who has previously duetted with Billy Ray Cyrus and Jack Harlow - and the 'Boys A Liar' singer are both viral stars of the TikTok generation, and they could be about to collaborate.

An insider told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: “PinkPantheress and Lil Nas are both working on albums at the moment, and they really clicked after being introduced.

“They have a lot in common and have been in the studio together.

“It is yet to be seen what they have come up with, but they’ve certainly been inspiring each other.”

Nas X shot to fame when his country trap hit 'Old Town Road' went viral in early 2019 before climbing the charts.

Pantheress, 23, reached number two in the UK and Australia with the viral tune 'Boys A Liar', while the 2023 remix featuring rapper Ice Spice became her first entry on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking in the top five.
