Lil Nas X’s 'Montero' is breaking the barriers of what pop-rap can be. Last Friday, the moment the entire world was waiting for finally happened. The young legend’s long-awaited full-length debut is a subversive delight, it’s a sweet, proud song that details the kind of boy he wants to settle down.
This tracklist is completely different from other artists' debuts, and the album lines up perfectly with his past fame experience.
'Montero' (Call me by your name) touches on his personal struggles before fame, with the ability to create impressive hooks and upbeat instrumentals. It’s a cultural shift, a singer to be proud of and it's impossible you don't love him.
It is apparent that Lil Nas X put a lot into writing this song to invoke the horrible feelings he had to endure while dealing with his identity.
