Lil Nas X has released the official music video for his new single, “J Christ,” and it’s left me clutching my pearls and my bible.
The 24-year-old controversial artist, whose real name is Montero Hill, seemingly returned to his “Call Me By Your Name” formula of inciting outrage with what many consider to be blasphemous imagery.
He defended himself by tweeting:
I’ve crossed satan up and broke his ankles, snapped his neck and literally killed him, made a song referencing the return of Jesus, and somehow yall still think im a satanist. I can not win lmaooo.
See the original tweet below.
In the “J Christ” video, written and directed by Lil Nas X, he raps:

Hmm, this way Took 'em to the telly and I told 'em it's a dizz-ate Turn up, baby, we gon' have to check out at like 6A Really it's that eizz-ight, but your Uber on the wiz-ay Back-back-back up out the gravesite B---, I'm back like J Christ I'm finna get the gays hyped I'm finna take it yay high Back up out the gravesite B---, I'm back like J Christ I'm finna take it, uh, uh I'm finna take it yay high
