Lil Nas X Parodies Nike Lawsuit Over His Satan Shoes While Announcing New Single 'Industry Baby'

Lil Nas X is poking fun at the trial that almost happened in the teaser trailer for his upcoming single, “Industry Baby”.

The 22-year-old rapper plays just about everyone – from the defense lawyer to the judge – in the sneak peek of the new track and video.

The teaser parodies a trial regarding his limited edition Satan Shoes, which was in collaboration with MSCHF.

The shoes were inspired by his hit song and video, “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)”, which were repurposed pairs of Nike Air Max 97s.

Just moments after the drop of the video and announcement of the shoes, Nike sued MSCHF for the “unauthorized Satan Shoes” that were “likely to cause confusion and dilution and create an erroneous association between MSCHF’s products and Nike.”

Nike and MSCHF quickly settled the lawsuit.

Lil Nas X‘s “Industry Baby” will be out on Friday, July 23.

“I’ve been in the studio working on two records,” she revealed.

“Sometimes in the studio, certain notes are a struggle — you’re boxed into this confined booth — compared to when you’re with an audience and the live musicianship takes your adrenaline to the next level. I’m like, ‘Wait, that note is much easier to hit onstage,’” she added of the live experience versus recording.

She then clarified what she’s working on.

“An English record and a Spanish record. The last time I did a Spanish record was when I was baby ChristinaMi Reflejo. It was such a beautiful moment for me to pay tribute to my roots on my father’s side — he’s from Ecuador — and ever since I’ve been wanting to do another one. So it’s really 20 years overdue, except now I’m kind of glad it was so long because I’ve been able to come back and dig deeper into some of my personal stories regarding my dad. I’ve always had a very estranged relationship with him, and I’m kind of touching on that.”

As for the other album, she called it a “totally different feel.”

“I’m working with producers and writers that I’ve been a big fan of for a long time. One in particular is Joseph Angel — he wrote ‘Love on the Brain’ for Rihanna. But all the writers come from such a deep, heartfelt place. It’s not about us trying to fit a mold; it’s a grown perspective that embodies everything I’ve experienced in this business and on a personal level. I made a lot of changes over quarantine — new people, new support team. The experience helped you realize who your ride-or-dies are. I’m in a really happy place, and I’ve never been able to fully say that.”

Christina recently made headlines for what she said in support of a fellow pop star – find out what it was!
