Sun Goes Down is melodic and it drapes in the shady and bold vocal range of Lil Nas X. He sings about himself in some way much relatable to other people’s experiences when it comes to personal acceptance and being oneself amidst haters, and doubters shade which lurks around to make you want to give in to being something not as unique as you.
Lil Nas X wants you to become proud of who you are. While he focused on running away from folks who don’t consider him, he also speaks on behalf of the lot who might still find themselves in the same simulation.
According to Nas X, he has friends who once picked on him while he felt it was because his lips were big. Nas wasn’t being appreciated nor does he even appreciate himself and while in that cause, his gay thought kept haunting as he claimed to pray to God saying he should take those thoughts from him.
In all these circumstances, many might find running far away as a solution or means to escape or perhaps taking their lives away.
Well, Nas wants you to live with this understanding that it’s much more to life than dying over your past mistakes or perhaps for even the cause that people threw dirt on your name. Not at all.
