Lil Nas X gave birth to baby Montero!
The 22-year-old singer released his highly-anticipated studio album today (September 17), with most songs coming with music videos. Montero Lamar Hill (Lil Nas X) kicked off the release with a skit of him hilariously giving birth to the album.
Folks on Twitter thought Montero was a perfect album:

As one fan put it, “Lil Nas X truly cannot miss no matter what genre he makes music in.”

The music video for “That’s What I Want” has a scene that took inspiration from Brokeback Mountain:

One fan praised Lil Nas X for showing usage of safe sex, but will probably still receive backlash from conservatives for inappropriate homosexual themes.
truly props to lil nas x for not only showing unabashed gay sensuality but also… safer sex? and before conservatives come at him for being “inappropriate” (gay), what straight artist is telling young people to wear condoms? none pic.twitter.com/QJLDMQOHy0— matt (@mattxiv) September 17, 2021
