Lil Nas X has finally released his highly anticipated new song!
After nearly a year of teasing, the 21-year-old rapper dropped “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” AND the very queer-themed music video to go along with it.
The video follows Lil Nas X portraying Eve (aka Adam and Eve) as he makes out with a snake, pole dances, and gives Satan a lap dance before seducing him.
Along with the single’s release, Lil Nas X revealed the meaning behind the title, “Montero,” while writing a letter to his 14-year-old self.
“Dear 14-year-old Montero, I wrote a song with our name in it. It’s about a guy I met last summer,” Lil Nas X wrote on Twitter. “I know we promised to never come out publicly, I know we promised to never be ‘that’ type of gay person, I know we promised to die with the secret, but this will open doors for many other queer people to simply exist.”
“You see this is very scary for me, people will be angry, they will say I’m pushing an agenda,” he continued. “But the truth is, I am. The agenda to make people stay the f–k out of other people’s lives and stop dictating who they should be. Sending you love from the future.”
If you missed it, Lil Nas X recently celebrated a major milestone.
