The time has finally arrived.
After blowing the doors off the industry with the release of his “country” single “Old Town Road” in December of 2018, Lil Nas X spent the next two and a half years trolling his way to the top through various (and downright, masterful) marketing schemes. And now, the Georgia-born artist has finally released his long-awaited debut album, Montero.
“I feel like with this album, I know what I wanted,” he told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “I know what I want. I know where I want to be in life. And I know that’s going to take me being more open and bringing it out of myself no matter how much it hurts or feels uncomfortable to say things that I need to say.”
A 15-track affair, the follow-up to 2019’s 7 EP comes equipped with features from Elton John, Doja Cat, Jack Harlow (“Industry Baby”), Megan Thee Stallion, and Miley Cyrus.
