Chart-topper and noted genre agnostic Lil Nas X has his sights set on getting booted from another chart. The rapper behind "Old Town Road" just shared a snippet of a new, rock-leaning song with Ryan Tedder and poked the chartmakers who helped turn his single into the No. 1 song in the country

"Y'all think they gone let me on the rock charts?" he asked when he shared a clip of himself lip-syncing the song from his upcoming debut album. X went on to say that the song is called "Bring U Down" and focuses on people trying to hinder a rising star

The selfie singalong has been Lil Nas X's preferred way of promoting the album, which doesn't yet have a release date. He's shared several videos of himself acting out snippets from as-yet released songs. 

Only X knows when we'll get to hear the full studio versions of these tracks, but all signs and Nas' Twitter point toward an album dropping in the summer.
