Lil Nas X, Montero, review: a gorgeous celebration of queer love
The i says when “Old Town Road” took over the world in 2019, no one could have predicted that its singer (a precocious, meme-literate teenager) would end up making an album that celebrated so much that has been taboo for so long.
Lil Nas X, aka Montero Lamar Hill, has made a thoughtful and emotional album full of his insecurities, his imposter syndrome and his grapples with being open about his sexuality.
The novelty rap-country of his world-beating hit is nowhere to be found, replaced by songs that range from emo-rock to slimy trap. Lil Nas X’s voice is very supple: one second he’s growling lustily about how he just wants some dick (“Scoop”), the next he’s hitting angelic highs as he openly craves something more (“Lost In The Citadel”).
