Lil Nas X has given us many gifts, and new track "INDUSTRY BABY" is the greatest one so far. Not only is it objectively a bop, but the song comes with a masterfully in-jokey music video conceived by the musician himself.
Referencing Lil Nas X's ongoing legal battle with Nike, it's kind of a "Shawshank Redemption, but make it gay" moment, featuring hot pink prison uniforms, Jack Harlow as a corrupt guard and an instantly-iconic nude shower dance scene. It's probably the most creative, fun and subversive music video to come out since, well, "MONTERO."
Go ahead! Watch it again:
If this original music video has any flaws, though, it's the fact that the naked shower dancers (including Lil Nas X himself) are subject to some strategically placed genital and butt blurring. Amending that fact today, the artist tweeted out a link to a new "uncensored" version. Comments were switched off, leaving curious fans with no choice but to click through and see the supposed full nudes.
