I think this is a nice song and I definitely like it, but it’s just underwhelming and kinda bland compared to Montero and some of the unreleased snippets I’ve heard from him.
I have been super excited for Lil Nas X’s album, and there are multiple snippets that he has teased that I really want to drop. But unfortunately, of the 3 singles he released for this album, I only really love “Montero”. “Holiday” was a solid song, but it wasn’t great and unfortunately neither is this song.
“Sun Goes Down” is a nice pop song, but the production is a little bland. It is a catchy song though, and I do like the personal lyrics and the sentiment of the song. The strings at the end of the song also sound great, but this just isn’t the smash hit that I was hoping for. Still highly anticipating the album though, and excited to see what Lil Nas X does next.
