Fresh off back-to-back sold-out shows at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall, multiplatinum recording artist and the new President of League of Legends, Lil Nas X, has joined forces with LoL Esports to unveil his new single and this year’s highly-anticipated Worlds Championship anthem, “STAR WALKIN’ (League of Legends Worlds Anthem).“
The song arrives alongside an animated official video highlighting iconic landmarks in San Francisco, the destination city for the World Final, and League of Legends pros past and present. The environment transforms as the pros move throughout the city, showcasing the sport’s iconic place in culture and the mastery of each pro as they leave their mark on the world. An easter egg can be found through almost every shot, from regional league flair to giant Champions-turned-mechs to fun facts about the pros of LoL Esports. Lil Nas X will take the stage with an unforgettable live performance at the Worlds Opening Ceremony presented by Mastercard leading into the World Final at the Chase Center in San Francisco on Saturday, November 5.
Lil Nas X is currently on his sold-out Long Live Montero world tour, with Chicago Sun-Times noting “Lil Nas X comes across as an icon in the making,” adding that the show is a “multi-sensory feast” that “comes off like a big Vegas residency.” The one-of-a-kind show is making its way across North America with additional stops in Europe this fall.

Last week, Lil Nas X expressed enthusiasm when he came on board as the new President of League of Legends.
“I felt like it was time for me to try something new. I’ve left my mark on pop culture in so many ways, and now it’s time to take on the world of gaming. I will be the greatest President, of League of Legends, of all time. Also, I’m going to make the best Worlds anthem of all time and put on the biggest, coolest, sexiest Worlds in the history of all Worlds!”
