Critic Reviews (42)

The people behind him never allowed him to breathe, and make something memorable.

The Young Folks The Young Folks

Ultimately, 7 EP as a whole proves far too generic, flat, and predictably radio-ready.

The result is another formulaic record that attempts to grasp at... something.

A glum eight-song set bookended by the two key versions of his hit.

Not one of these songs are good.

An eight-track hodgepodge of ideas.

7 marks the beginning of his fall back to earth.

Highsnobiety Highsnobiety

The crudeness and lack of sophistication of the tracks on “7” are essential to their appeal, much in the way that a goofy eight-bit graphic is often funnier and more charming than an elaborate animation, and not simply for reasons of nostalgia.

This EP doesn’t make much of a splash.

7 is as much about figuring out what made “Old Town Road” land as it is about delivering a satisfying sequel.

7 proves that Lil Nas X's versatility and eclectic taste will be one of his defining factors as a musician.

Exclaim Exclaim

Lil Nas X is a passable rapper, but 7 proves that his true focus is melody—a universal, boundary-obliterating delivery service that makes his songs, in spite of their stylistic eclecticism, go down almost deceptively easy.

As valiant as his efforts were, I foresee the one-hit curse following Lil Nas X like the plague.

7 is musical Chex Mix — lightweight and best consumed in selective increments, but also strangely addictive.

58% 2 years ago

Consequence of Sound Consequence of Sound

A collection of eight unfocused songs that all seem to have been conceived—except for “Old Town Road” and it’s remix—using a paint by numbers methodology specifically engineered to recreate the crossover success of his smash single.

The EP is fun, but confirms that Lil Nas X doesn't quite know what to do.

The project "7" does not even know where it wants to go.

lautde lautde

There are enough hooks in this bouquet of confusing-if-passable genre-hopping tracks to keep him on the path to future hits, but nothing comes remotely close to the lightning in a bottle of "Old Town Road"'s accidental perfection.

7 makes a solid case that Lil Nas X has the chops.

It achieves everything that it sets out to.

7 EP reflects the cultural moment, and Gen Z’s ongoing and inspiring deconstruction of music genres as we know them.

2 years ago


With 7, there’s too little conviction to tell if a full project is something Lil Nas X wants to do.

Entertainment Weekly Entertainment Weekly (TOP)

It achieves what a quick EP after a monster hit must: It keeps hope alive while buying time to work on a more realized album.

2 years ago


For being an EP whipped together quickly in an effort to beat the one-hit wonder clock, Lil Nas X’s 7 is, above everything, a solid, promising start.

Lil Nas X’s post-‘Old Town Road’ EP is a mess.

The songs on the debut EP from the viral rap and country star do not even come close to the pure magic of “Old Town Road.”

Sorry I really loved Old Town Road and I guess I thought his eventually album would be like it and I really one enjoyed Rodeo. The songs aren’t bad they’re just not what I was looking for from him. ✌🏾😭

it’s yee haw yee yee

Wow Actually it’s not bad at all 😭 I weirdly like it and even though some of this sounds like it’s meant to be a joke, I respect him for not fitting the mold of literally every new rapper ever 🤷🏽‍♂️

Sounds GREAT! Proud of Lil Nas X and his rise to stardom. This first EP sounds GREAT! He is killing every genre of music with this EP. Its really something for everybody on this album.
