Riot teased the upcoming League of Legends World Championship anthem just the other day, but now it turns out that we can already listen to the whole thing, all thanks to Lil Nas X.
At a recent show in Detroit, Lil Nas X performed some of his biggest hits and songs. It seems like one of them shouldn't have been shown off yet though... Just last night, Riot released a snippet of the LoL Worlds' 2022 Anthem, teasing fans, but we didn't have to wait long to hear the complete song.
Lil Nas X kicked off his 'Long Live Montero' Tour on September 6, 2022 in Detroit, Michigan. He played two nights at the Fox Theatre and on the second night he played, one special song for the crowd came up.
STARWALKIN' Performed On Stage by Lil Nas X
Riot likes to keep things hush hush, so fans can be surprised and awed by what the company had in store for them. This is especially true when it comes to the League of Legends World Championship. But this time, it seems a slip up happened...
In a recent announcement, it was revealed that Lil Nas X was going to perform the League of Legends anthem this year. Not only that, but he worked alongside Riot to bring a brand-new and unique prestige skin to life for the upcoming top laner – K'Sante, the Pride of Nazumah.
Here are some spicy K/DA takes:
Well, while the skin is still under wraps, the League of Legends anthem... isn't. At the second show of his Detroit stop, Lil Nas X performed his new song Starwalkin, which, after the teasers of the LoL Worlds anthem, we now know is going to be the song for the biggest League of Legends esports event of the year.
He performed this song at the end of his usual set, asking the fans whether he can perform one more song. Of course the fans wouldn't say no to more music from their favorite artist and on came the League of Legends anthem, though at the time, no one knew that this song was made for an esports event.
What do you guys think of the song? Is this going to get you hyped for the upcoming League of Legends World Championship?
