Lil Nas X dropped a new song, visual, and gave us a new theme to go with it.
The rapper tossed his cowboy hat for a more futuristic type of feel.
His latest single, “Panini”, is not about a sandwich. It’s about his “unsupportive” fan base ultimately.
Lil Nas X is comparing his “fans” to a character named Panini from an animated TV series or Cartoon Network, Chowder.
With this track, Lil Nas X isn’t grilling sandwiches, but rather his older, not-so-supportive fanbase, whom he is comparing to Panini, a character from the animated television series Chowder, which ran on Cartoon Network for three seasons from 2007 to 2010.
“Panini is a character with a massive crush on the titular Chowder, who doesn’t share those feelings in return but instead says, ‘I’m not your boyfriend!’” Panini is a representation of fans of who loves you when you’re small. Once you get the spotlight they aren’t feeling you as much. The song is not a diss but anger towards that fan but also wanting them back, according to Nas.
