Lil Nas X is set to dominate the summer with his latest release. The rapper unveiled “HERE WE GO!” on Friday, June 28, the official theme song for the upcoming Netflix film “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F.”

This single promises to capture the spirit of the original movie while infusing it with Lil Nas X’s signature style.

The song pays homage to the 1984 classic by incorporating a sample of the original “Axel F” theme, a piece written and performed by Harold Faltermeyer.

The original tune, with its catchy electronic beat, became an iconic part of the film’s identity.

Lil Nas X, 25, has taken this memorable melody and layered it with his own energetic and infectious rhythm, crafting a track that feels both nostalgic and fresh.

In “HERE WE GO!”, Lil Nas X delivers lyrics that exude confidence and determination. Lines such as “Move tell them make room / tell them make a way / tell them make a hole / Tell them boys they better hide / tell them lay low / tell them play it safe cause we don’t play at all,” showcase his bold and assertive style.

The track is designed to inspire and energize, much like the action-packed scenes it will accompany in the movie.

Ahead of the release, Lil Nas X expressed his excitement and the personal significance of the song.

On Tuesday, June 25, he posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, saying, “So excited to release the best song of all time this Friday! Also sorry I’ve been so scared with my art lately. I’m coming around to myself again. I will make you guys very proud.”

In an interview with Netflix, he elaborated on the creative process behind the track. Describing the experience as “actually kind of insane,” he admitted it made him “a bit emotional.”

The collaboration with the film’s stars, including Eddie Murphy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, added to the significance of the project for him.

Despite some nerves about how fans of the original might react, Lil Nas X is proud of his work and hopeful it will be well received.

The new film, set to stream on Netflix starting Wednesday, July 3, follows the adventures of Detective Axel Foley, played once again by Eddie Murphy.

This time, Foley finds himself back in Beverly Hills after his daughter’s life is threatened.

Together with his daughter (played by Taylour Paige), a new partner (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), and old friends Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold) and John Taggart (John Ashton), Foley works to uncover a dangerous conspiracy.

The original “Beverly Hills Cop” was a major hit when it was released in 1984, known for its blend of comedy and action. It spawned two sequels: “Beverly Hills Cop II” in 1987 and “Beverly Hills Cop III” in 1994.

The character of Axel Foley, with his quick wit and unorthodox methods, became one of Eddie Murphy’s most iconic roles.

Lil Nas X’s involvement in the new film’s soundtrack adds a modern twist to the franchise. Known for his genre-blending style and catchy hits like “Old Town Road,” Lil Nas X brings a unique flavor to the project.

His ability to merge different musical elements and create something entirely new aligns perfectly with the spirit of “Beverly Hills Cop,” a series that has always balanced humor with high-energy action.

Fans of both Lil Nas X and the “Beverly Hills Cop” series are eagerly awaiting the film and its soundtrack. The release of “HERE WE GO!” is likely to build even more anticipation for the movie.

As the summer heats up, this new track is set to be a major hit, playing on repeat for many as they watch Detective Axel Foley take on his latest case.

With the film’s release just around the corner, audiences can look forward to an exciting blend of nostalgia and innovation. “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F” promises to bring back the beloved characters and thrilling action, all set to the beat of Lil Nas X’s electrifying new theme song.
