Rapper released the new single with a letter to his 14-year-old self

Lil Nas X has released a new single, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” together with a provocative, self-directed video with Tanu Muino.

“In life, we hide the parts of ourselves we don’t want the world to see,” Lil Nas X says in the voiceover to the video’s intro.

“We lock them away.

We tell them, ‘No.’ We banish them.

But here, we don’t.”

The out rapper and singer then introduces us to the fantasy land of Montero, named after him (Montero Lamar Hill), where he is free to embody his sexuality as he pleases.

The video depicts several Lil Nas X alter-egos in scenes inspired by history and mythology, including a makeout session with an alien version of himself, a Marie Antoinette-inspired stoning, and a lap dance with the Devil.

Lil Nas X released the “Call Me By Your Name” video alongside 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.

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.

But the truth is, I am.

The agenda to make people stay the fuck out of other people’s lives and stop dictating who they should be.

Sending you love from the future.

-LNX”

Lil Nas X previously released the Christmas-themed video for “Holiday” back in December.

His debut EP came out in 2019.

Lil Nas X releases new single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name” as well as a Biblical new music video, which finds the rapper playing Adam, the snake, 

Hoooo boy, if some people got their bone-dry panties in a twist over “WAP” and its scandalous music video, they’re going to want to get their tombs in order before they click play on Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” video, because those individuals are about to be deceased.

As promised, the “Old Town Road” rapper finally released his much-anticipated new single to streaming at midnight, but he also simultaneously released a music video for the song, a music video which reminds you that Lil Nas X is the moment.

He’s also Adam in the new Garden of Eden, i.e.

“Montero,” a glimmering lavender angel, and a pole-dancing demon, and all of that happens before Lil Nas X gives Satan himself a lap dance in boxer briefs and thigh-high boots, murdering him and taking his rightful place on the throne of hell.

2021 is here, Purgatory is (almost) over, and Lil Nas X is our Dante.

Don’t believe us? We didn’t even mention the part where he seduces himself dressed as a giant snake.

Go look, and listen, for yourself.
