Lil Nas X tops the UK singles chart with ‘MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)’
Lil Nas X has rocketed to the top of the UK singles chart with ‘MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)’. The track marks his second UK No.1, following the chart success of his breakout hit ‘Old Town Road’ in 2019.
‘MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)’ was produced by Take a Daytrip, Omer Fedi and Roy Enzo and is an honest telling of who Montero – aka Lil Nas X – has become. The song title is a homage to the award-winning film of the same name and asks the question: do you truly love your neighbour as yourself, enough to call them by your own name?
Based on a concept imagined by Lil Nas X himself, the accompanying video is packed with biblical references and nods to Greek mythology, while offering his own personal story of temptation, judgement and standing in the full power of his sexuality. It was co-directed by LNX with Tanu Muino and produced by UnderWonder Content, with visual effects by Mathematic.
