Just weeks after learning his first children’s book, ‘C is For Country,’ became a New York Times bestseller, Lil Nas X turned into “Lil Nas X-rated” to commemorate the release of his latest song, ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name).’
Teased for months ahead of its March 26 arrival, the cut’s Tanu Muino-directed music video dropped jaws when it hit YouTube thanks to a bevy of shocking imagery including the GRAMMY winner dipping low and picking it up slow for Satan.
As social media commentary on the visual continues to heat up, X’s dedicated fans are putting their money where their mouths are in support of the spicy tune.
