Born on April 9, 1999, in Lithia Springs, Georgia, USA, Lil Nas X is a rapper and singer-songwriter who has made a name for himself in the past two years with his music. He burst into the music scene with his hit country rap single “Old Town Road” in early 2019 and it achieved immense viral popularity and made a major run on all the international music charts. “Old Town Road” spent an unbelievable 19 weeks on the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart holding the pole position and has set the record for the longest stay at the chart’s top ever since the chart began in 1958. He has also earned a ton of music and video awards for his single in the last two years. Lil Nas X also made a big splash for another reason – He is openly LGBTQ and has spoken to the media freely about his sexuality to reduce the homophobic sentiments in the country. Lil Nas X has been much admired for his efforts to speak out on the behalf of the alternative sexuality community.

Right now he is in the news for the impending release of his first full-length album which is also his debut studio album. He has released his debut extended play record titled 7 in June 2019 and that too made it to the Billboard chart. His new album is titled, Montero. Lil Nas X Montero will be released on September 17, 2021, through Columbia Records and the record label is excited by this. They expect a big market for this album that has been a while in the making. Some of the Lil Nas X singles that will be released are “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)”, “Sun Goes Down” and “Industry Baby.” People are wondering why Lil Nas X’s new album 2021 is titled, Montero. That’s because it is based on his real name Montero Lamar Hill. Lil Nas X is his stage name but that’s what he is called everywhere. Montero has several guest singers on it with whom Lil Nas X has worked and they include Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Elton John, Miley Cyrus, and Jack Harlow. Quite a party this one!!

People are curious about Lil Nas X’s album cover and are wondering what it looks like. Lil Nas X has revealed the cover art for his album, Montero, to the media and it is very unique and creative. It features a nude image of the singer against a colourful background and is a bit surreal. He has said that the cover image has been inspired by the art of SpongeBob SquarePants and John Stephens’ Genesis II. The album cover art is an open nod to the singer’s sexuality and might be termed controversial by some. Everybody is waiting to see what Walmart has to say about it!!

It’s a Big Moment for Lil Nas X!

Lil Nas X is just 22 years old and has a great future ahead of him if he keeps his head on his shoulders. That is easier said than done considering the sad state of the rap music industry which a decade ago was global in its reach, influence, and commercial power. Those old days of rap mania are probably not going to come back but it sure seems that the music industry is treating Montero as an important event. So come September 17, 2021, and Montero will hit the record stores, digital media, MTV, and clubs all across America and later the world. Lil Nas X won’t be so little anymore but will be quite big everywhere!
