No one has had a more unexpected rise to fame in the last year than Lil’ Nas X. Virtually unknown to the general public at this time last year, he has cemented himself within pop culture. In just a year’s time, he’s released a number one hit, dropped a number one album and collaborated with stars like Nas and Cardi B. Not to mention, he earned his first two GRAMMY Awards last week in Los Angeles. Tonight, he added another accolade to his growing list of accomplishment, Super Bowl ad star.
During Super Bowl LIV, fans can check out a new ad from Doritos from called “Bassquake” featuring Lil’ Nas X.

Nothing of substance seems to happen, but it’s a landmark moment in the career of the unlikely star.
