He stormed onto the scene in 2019 with his country/hip-hop mash up, ‘Old Town Road’. The song would go on to set the record for the longest number one song in chart history. Believe it or not, the pop sensation, Lil Nas X, just released his debut album Montero. He’s been promoting the album by chronicling his “pregnancy” (with the album).
He gave birth Friday (Sept. 17th) and it’s a…. Album.
He’s developed quite the circle during his swift 2-year run in the industry. Some of those friends joined him for his debut release- I mean, “birth”. Features from stars like Elton John, Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, Miley Cyrus, and Jack Harlow provide a cast of godparents to Montero, helping the young artist with his first LP.
The album released to “rave reviews,” says Forbes. Marcus Shorter of Consequence said, “Montero features 40 minutes of Lil Nas X bearing his naked soul to both his fans and detractors, coming from ‘an artist clearly comfortable in his own Satan shoes.” I had forgot about the shoes thing, good point.
