Lil Nas X and Dominic Fike make out in a new Brockhampton video and we are definitely feeling a lot of things here.

Brockhampton recruited Lil Nas X and Fike for “COUNT ON ME”, taken from their recently-released sixth studio album, Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine.

In the clip, the singers star as two lovers on a romantic getaway – which may or may not be a replica of that dream you had the other night. You know the one.

The music video, directed by the band’s own Kevin Abstract and Dan Strein, sees Lil Nas X and Fike drive in Jeep before stepping out to explore a Twin Peaks-grade fever dream.

And then they make out – a lot – during an animated hallucination sequence full of clunky CGI and frogs.

“I guess I’m a video vixen now,” tweeted Lil Nas X of the new video which dropped Wednesday (14 April).

The song also features vocals from A$AP Rocky, Ryan Beatty and professional heterosexual Shawn Mendes.

It all begins with the “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” hitmaker, who recently invented bottoming, asking Fike what music he’s listening to.

“Old bands, Radiohead,” he responds. “You like Radiohead?”

“Who the f**k is Radiohead?” Lil Nas X, 22, jokes.

They eventually pull over for a moment of solitude, sharing a kiss and skinny dipping, before all their daydreams come true in a wonky style not too dissimilar to Brockhampton’s other track, “Buzzcut”.

And it’s safe to say that fans couldn’t get enough of it.

After all, Lil Nas X is a master at whipping people into a frenzy, with his bottoming banger “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” topping charts around the world – including in homophobic Saudi Arabia.

The song, with its music video that features the artist giving Satan a lapdance and pole-dancing straight to Hell, has soared to the number one of the global charts.

And according to Apple Music, the single is even leading Saudi Arabia’s top 100 charts as the country’s most played song – where queer sex is punishable by death under Sharia law.
