The 60-second Logitech commercial sees the ‘Old Town Road’ hitmaker star alongside environmentalist Leah Thomas, illustrator Mercedes Bazan, streamer Meg Kaylee and a number of others.
“We stand there in defiance,” Lil Nas X narrates as the track plays in the background. “We the makers. We the groundbreakers. We the creators, the screamers, and dreamers.”
He continues: “We defy expectations, perceptions and misconceptions. We defy what logic says we should look like, sound like, be like. We defy genres, algorithms and entire industries.
“See, we defy that little voice that says, ‘oh no we can’t’, with a roar back that says, ‘oh yes, we will’. Because to create the future we must defy the logic of the past. We must defy logic.”
Watch the clip below:
‘Call Me By Your Name’ was first teased last year but is yet to receive a release date.
The rapper picked up the gongs for Best Music Video and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at last year’s awards, while Lizzo triumphed in the Best Urban Contemporary Album category, as well as winning the Best Pop Solo Performance for ‘Truth Hurts’, and Best Traditional R&B Performance for the song ‘Jerome’.
He delivered a free-to-access concert which was aired three times across November 14-15. As reported in IQ Magazine, the performances achieved over 35 million visits from fans around the world.
