MONTERO takes the listeners on an autobiographical journey through the evolution of Montero aka Lil Nas X. MONTERO is about liberation. It’s about freeing yourself from perceived rules and being authentic to yourself. Together we experience the development of Lil Nas X from a young reserved teenager to a free icon; from an average kid to a superstar.
This transformation is creatively represented and referenced on the album through the life cycles of butterflies. For Nas, butterflies are not only beautiful, but also mysterious, full of symbolism and meaning and stand for spiritual rebirth, transformation, change, hope and life.
The grandiose but short life of the butterfly accurately mirrors the process of the spiritual revolution and reminds us that life is short. MONTERO includes 15 tracks and collaborations with Miley Cyrus, Doja Cat, Jack Harlow and Sir Elton John. The album was written and produced by Lil Nas X himself in collaboration with Kanye West, Take-a-Daytrip, Omer Fedi, Denzel Baptiste, Ryan Tedder and John Cunningham.
Finally it´s out, the long-awaited and long-awaited debut album MONTERO. And not only the new album with feature guests like SIR ELTON JOHN and MILEY CYRUS but also a brand new music video for the track THAT’S WHAT I WANT has been released.
