Lil Nas X’s debut EP 7 has arrived. Naturally, it includes his breakout hit “Old Town Road” (in OG and Billy Ray Cyrus remix format), in addition to “Panini” which dropped yesterday. Stream it below, and revisit our original post on the lead up to the project after the jump.
It’s been quite the year for Lil Nas X, the 20-year-old artist who first made headlines back in March when his TikTok #YeeHawChallenge track “Old Town Road” went viral and catapulted him onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
At the time, Billboard also added Lil Nas X onto the Hot Country Songs list but subsequently removed him for not being country enough. The move only enhanced the artist’s ubiquity and pulled attention from celebs around the globe including Will Smith and Billy Ray Cyrus.
Now, ahead of the arrival of Lil Nas X’s debut EP, 7 , which he’s been teasing for some time now, we’ve gathered everything you need to know about the project, including release date, track listing, guest features, and more.
Lil Nas X’s 7 EP release date
Lil Nas X confirmed that his debut EP 7 will drop June 21.
Lil Nas X’s 7 EP tracklist
Lil Nas X took to Twitter yesterday to share the full track list for 7 and of course it’s set to include the record-crushing single “Old Town Road.” The six other tracks include the Take a Daytrip-produced “Panini,” a rock-rap hybrid track called “Bring U Down,” and the previously teased “Rodeo” (previously titled “Never Cared”), which you can preview via the studio video below.

While it could be that the images included in Lil Nas X’s tracklist will feature as 7‘s cover art, the musician has been having fun on Twitter, trolling followers into thinking that he’s just going to photoshop his face on to previously-released Drake albums like Take Care and Nothing Was The Same.
Lil Nas X’s 7 EP guest appearances
It’s likely that Billy Ray Cyrus will feature on 7 as the Lil Nas X has decided to include the remix of “Old Town Road” as opposed to the OG release. Who knows, maybe the other celebs featured in the official video will pop up on the EP too, such as Rico Nasty, Diplo, and Vince Staples.
Lil Nas X’s 7 EP merch
Right now Lil Nas X’s merch store only includes a sold-out horse-print tee and the “Old Town Road” vinyl with digital download. We’re sure more merch will land on the store when the EP drops June 21, however, so keep your eyes peeled.
