Lil Nas X has been the most talked-about artist over the past few months and all the conversations and hype have led to the release of his highly anticipated debut album ‘MONTERO’.
‘MONTERO’ features 15 songs with guest appearances from Megan Thee Stallion, Elton John, Doja Cat, Miley Cyrus and Jack Harlow. The rapper, singer-songwriter revealed in an interview that he wanted the album to feature Drake and Nicki Minaj but was unable to make it happen as Drake was at the time occupied with his own album and did not get a reply from Nicki.
X came into the limelight with the release of his 2019 hit song ‘Old Town Road’ which made an instant impact and has since then been a force to reckon with, speaking on the album, Lil Nas said:
“I’ve learned to let go of trying to control people’s perception of who I am, what I can do, and where I will be,” the musician wrote. “I’ve realized the only opinion of me that really matters is my own.”
The rapper opened up some more about the album on the YouTube series Kerwin Frost Talks:
“It’s all connecting to one little world, It’s pretty cohesive. It’s very much straightforward, like OK, this Montero: This is how I feel about the future, about this past event, about this current thing going, this part of my love life, this part of family, this part of my career, you know? I really wanna let people to get to know Montero. It’s definitely deeper, but it still has its bops.”
