The internet reacts to ‘STAR WALKIN” Worlds 2022 anthem

The newest anthem of the League of Legends World Championship, Lil Nas X’s “STAR WALKIN'” debuted on September 22nd.

As with previous anthems, the song was accompanied by an animated music video. In it, pro players like Jo “CoreJJ” Yong-in and Marek “Humanoid” Brázda take to the streets of San Francisco, where the finals of Worlds 2022 will be held.

The first online reception appears most of time positive. Lil Nas X and League of Legends fans were quick to listen to “STAR WALKIN'” and shared their support.

Comments and tweets were quick to point out the unfortunate attention drawn to CoreJJ not attending Worlds as Team Liquid failed to qualify. This isn’t the first time a Worlds anthem music video has featured a player who wouldn’t go to Worlds; These glitches occasionally occur when production of the music video begins long before World Cup Qualification.

When it comes to criticism of the song itself, the main point of discussion has been the fact that “STAR WALKIN'” Not “feel” like a world anthem. While most listeners wouldn’t dismiss the song, some say it feels more like a Lil Nas X song and less like a Worlds song.

The Anthems of Past Worlds have received much praise for being that “hype” Song that initiates the tournament and gives momentum to the first games. Some have said that “STAR WALKIN'” stops. While it’s a good song, it doesn’t build anticipation for the games.

The song has just been released and likely the discourse will change when the tournament begins. Lil Nas X’s live performance of “STAR WALKIN'” can also change attitudes toward the song depending on how it’s recorded.
