He’s back! This past Friday, Lil Nas X made his highly-anticipated return with a brand new single and an accompanying video. The new track is entitled “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” an impressive new track produced by Take a DayTrip, Omer Fedi, and Roy Enzo. The Grammy-winning MC shows off his vulnerable side, embracing his sexuality in the process.
The track’s title is an homage to the 2017 coming-of-age film with Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer. Nas X raps, “Cocaine and drinkin’ with your friends / You live in the dark, boy, I cannot pretend / I’m not phased, only here to sin / If Eve ain’t in your garden, you know that you can,” raps Lil Nas. “Call me when you want, call me when you need / Call me in the morning, I’ll be on the way.”
The track’s visuals are vivid and fitting, bold, eye-catching, and something we wouldn’t recommend sleeping on. This young man is pushing the boundaries and shows off his growth in the process.
