“DONT WANT IT” is the thirteenth song on Atlanta rapper Lil Nas X’s debut studio album. It features producer credits from Nick Mira and Lil Nas X himself, as this is the first song he’s helped co-produce on.
The song interpolates the folk nursery rhyme “Hush, Little Baby” in its chorus. Lil Nas X isn’t the first rapper to do so—the song was also sampled in Eminem’s “Mockingbird.”
Lil Nas X first previewed the song on Twitter on April 3, 2019, and is confirmed on September 13, 2020, through Instagram stories. The song’s title briefly appeared on screen in Lil Nas X’s futuristic Holiday music video (at 0:49) released on November 13, 2020. This song along with the rest of the album was officially released September 17th, 2021
