Lil Nas X’s new song pays homage to an 80s classic 

Lil Nas X has announced that his next new song will be out on June 28th. And this time around he’s got a little help from Eddie Murphy’s iconic detective, Axel Foley. 

The song, “Here We Go”, will feature on the long-awaited new Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F. Lil Nas X says it’s his first song written specifically for a movie. 

Fans of the original Beverly Hills Cop movies will recognize the song features a sample from the classic 80s track, “Axel F” by Harold Faltermeyer (you will probably know the electro riff even if you don’t know the name). 

Lil Nas X shared a snippet of the song on social media yesterday. 

 Netflix, which will be streaming the movie, also shared news of the release.

The first Beverly Hills Cop was a huge hit back in 1984 and turned Eddie Murphy into an A-list Hollywood star. Sequels followed in 1987 and 1994. This third sequel will hit Netflix on July 3. 

The movie feature an appearance from Murphy’s daughter, Bria (one of his ten kids), as a traffic cop. 

Lil Nas X shot to fame in 2019 with his global hit, “Old Town Road”. He came out as gay at the end of Pride Month that same year. He followed it up with the number one hits “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” and “Industry Baby”. 

After not releasing any new music for a couple of years, Lil Nas X’s track “J Christ” only hit a disappointing 69 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier in 2024. Since then, he’s put out several tracks on Soundcloud, along with a collaboration with Camila Cabello (“He Knows”) last month.
