Lil Nas X came out as gay on the last day of Pride Month, June 30. The “Old Town Road” singer took to Twitter to celebrate the announcement.

He encouraged his followers to take a closer look at the lyrics on “C7osure” from his new ‘7’ EP.  Fans immediately picked up on hidden (or maybe not so hidden) meaning to the song's opening; specifically the lines, “True say, I want and I need to let go, use my time to be free.” Followed by, “Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow/ No more red light for me baby, only green, I gotta go/ Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take ahold/ This is what I gotta do, can’t be regrettin’ when I’m old.”

The country rap crossover sensation tweeted, “Some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more. but before this month ends I want y’all to listen closely to c7osure,” along with a photo captioned "deadass thought i made it obvious."
