Jack Harlow‘s unlikely moment is continuing with few signs of stopping. His 2020 single “What’s Poppin” was a smash hit and nominated for a Grammy, his Lil Nas X collaboration “Industry Baby” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and he’s fresh off a very successful performance at last week’s Lollapalooza. Now he’s sharing a new song “SUVs (Black On Black) featuring Pooh Shiesty.
The track is a catchy demonstration of Harlow’s flexibility — he’s been well served by his naturally impish charm, and it allows him to glide over a beat that rattles in the red. His brags (or facts, as he claims) sound comfortable next to Pooh Shiesty, who was arrested as his career was beginning to peak and now faces faces federal shooting charges. Hopefully, he’ll be out soon and able to appreciate the newfound attention this song will likely bring.
Lil Nas X has delivered another high concept video, this time for new single “Industry Baby.” The visual catches Nas in prison and plotting his escape. With two Grammys and his platinum discs on the wall of his cell, Nas appears to be coping well with his five month sentence and is shown lifting weights and sporting a pink jumpsuit. However, as the video progresses his plan becomes clear. Alongside guest star Jack Harlow, he is plotting to bust out and go on the run. Check out the video above to see how he gets on.
“Industry Baby” is co-produced by Kanye West and Take A Daytrip. It will feature on Lil Nas ‘s debut album Montero alongside recent singles “Sun Goes Down” and “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” famed for its Satan-worshiping video.
Along with the announcement, the rapper shared a short preview video with a hilarious take on his legal issues with Nike over the “Montero (Call me By Your Name)”-inspired “Satan Shoe” collaboration with New York-based art collective MSCHF. In a lawsuit, Nike claimed the unauthorized shoes were “likely to cause confusion…and create an erroneous association between MSCHF’s products and Nike.” MSCHF was subsequently barred from sending out any remaining pairs of the shoe.
