On Monday, Feb. 20, he hopped on Twitter to engage with his fans and dropped some jewels about upcoming music and what fans can expect.

Another fan asked him “when is the album coming” and he told them it was coming out in the summer, adding that some songs have already been leaked.
When someone asked, “How many tracks confirmed?”
The “Old Town Road” rapper said, “idk I love so many songs plus I’m still in the studio making music so it’s gone be hard to pick.”
Fiddy, whose user name is @nasxfiddy, said “Take your time but also hurry the hell up.”
Lil Nas X took that in stride but offered (understanding the urgency of his fans’ request), “it’s mostly planning now. I could easily just release music but I have to build moments around this s###. I have to go bigger than before!”
This new project will be almost two years after his last, which was nominated for Album of the Year, “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” was nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, and “Industry Baby” was nominated for Best Melodic Rap Performance at the Grammy Awards.
