Lil Nas X has kept fans waiting for his debut album, which he announced earlier this year will be called Montero. The wait has been anything but routine. The album’s first hit, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” sparked outrage, but subsequent singles “Sun Goes Down” and “Industry Baby,” both featuring Jack Harlow, have kept things interesting. Lil Nas X has finally disclosed a release date, and it isn’t too far away.
Montero will be launched on September 17th, next month. The news was revealed in a trailer for the singer’s upcoming album, which he released on Wednesday night. The video is a continuation of the one for “Industry Baby,” and it starts with a TV journalist — portrayed by Lil Nas — asking for information on the singer’s location after he escaped from prison, while jokingly referring to himself as a “power bottom’rapper” and “talentless gay.” The scene then shifts to Lil Nas driving along a winding road in the middle of nowhere.
