Lil Nas X has once again been one of the biggest stars in the music industry, having recently released another number one single. It is “Baby Industry, Starring Jack Harlow.
Industry Baby was originally released in early August and debuted as the number two song in the United States. Last week he finally reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

In a new interview with GQ, the Louisville rapper revealed that people around him initially felt he was on “Baby Industry, ”Wouldn’t be a good look. They explained that they thought the homosexual content in the Nas X clips was “bad.”
“I had people in my corner who didn’t recommend me to do this song, who didn’t want to watch this video, you know? But I just realized that there is a fundamental difference with the way some people see the world. Some people think some things are wrong. There are people, at the root level – although they don’t want to hurt any homosexual; they don’t hate homosexuals – they think it’s wrong, whether it’s religion or some other reason. But for me, I’ve never been like this. Never.”

Industry Baby was also her second number one hit of this year, which joins her “Montero (Call me by your name)“, originally released in late March.

Industry Baby then appeared on Nas X’s debut studio album, “Montero,” which was released in mid-September. This project became the number two album in the United States.
