Lil Nas X Debuts Futuristic Video for 'Panini'

  /  09.05.2019

After venturing into the wild west with “Old Town Road,” Lil Nas X goes back to the future in the video for “Panini.” The clip takes place in a futuristic world with flying cars and hologram billboards, and stars Disney actress Skai Jackson, who tries to escape Lil Nas X as he follows her everywhere she goes trying to win her over as a fan.

“Hey Panini, don’t you be a meanie,” he raps as he shows off his robotic moves. “I thought you want this for my life, for my life / Said you wanted to see me thrive, you lied.”

Lil Nas X came up with the concept himself and it was brought to life and directed by special effects artist, musician, and YouTuber Mike Diva.

“Panini,” which features a sample of Nirvana’s “In Bloom,” is the second single off Lil Nas X’s debut EP 7 following “Old Town Road,” which broke the record for longest-running No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“One of the craziest things about ‘Panini,’ is it introduced me to Nirvana’s album Nevermind,” he told Apple Music’s Beats 1. “It’s like I always seen the cover but I never actually listened to it. And people was like, ‘Wow, he sampled ‘Nirvana.” I was like, no. It’s like, I didn’t realize I was using almost the exact same melody.”
