After relentlessly teasing his fans, Lil Nas X has finally dropped his long-awaited new single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).” The “Old Town Road” hitmaker first previewed the song during the Super Bowl LV in February, later revealing the Filip Custic artwork.
Produced by Take a Day Trip, Omer Fedi, and Roy Lenzo, the melodic single is the rapper’s first since he dropped “Holiday” in November, 2020. The song could be a sign that his long-awaited debut album, which he teased in an interview with Complex last year, is finally on the way.
Nas X also shared the official music video for the track, which features references to Greek mythology, Plato’s Symposium, and religious imagery. Check out the by LNX and Tanu Muino-directed video up top.
