Lil Nas X yesterday tweet-announced the 17 September release of his debut album Montero. In the video accompanying the tweet, the gay singer-songwriter also described himself as a ‘power bottom rapper’.
Scroll down for the tweet and clip from ‘That’s What I Want’.
Since the release of the country rap chart-buster ‘Old Town Road’ in 2019, Lil Nas X enjoyed further hits with ‘Panini’ and ‘Rodeo’. Earlier this year, ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ gave him another Number One single. Then in July, ‘Industry Babe’ which debuted at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, gave him his fourth Top Ten hit.
Not bad for an artist previously described by many as a One Hit Wonder. Following his coming out at the peak of his ‘Old Town Road’ success many predicted an early end to his career. But Lil Nas X goes from strength to strength.
Power bottom rapper Lil Nas X
Lil Nas X appears as a TV announcer in a video attached to the Tweet and references the prison narrative of his ‘Industry Babe’ video.
“Power bottom rapper Lil Nas X and his caucasian friend led a prison escape this morning. The talentless homosexual was sentenced to five years in prison. Investigators say anybody who comes into contact with the power bottom contact authorities immediately.”
There’s also a clip from a new song, ‘That’s What I Want’.
creating this album has been therapy for me. i’ve learned to let go of trying to control people’s perception of who i am, what i can do, and where i will be. i’ve realized the only opinion of me that really matters is my own.
