The Montero Cinematic Universe has arrived!
Lil Nas X has declared the release of his debut album, Montero, with a trailer intensely inspired by Marvel Studios’ opening sequence.
Similarly as Marvel’s opening theme places their extensive lineup of superheroes on display, this trailer features probably the most trailer features from the musician’s career — including sequences from “Old Town Road” and his 2021 singles. As the camera zooms out to uncover the “Montero” title, the true to life music is cut off by blaring horns that progress into Lil Nas X’s new single.
The 22-year-old artist has kept on pushing limits this year, most remarkably with the music video for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” a song that includes the artist giving devil a lap dance. Lil Nas X put on an Egyptian-themed performance of the hit melody at the 2021 BET Awards on Sunday night, which finished with a hot kiss with one of his male artists.
The two successful singles “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” and “Sun Goes Down” will be released on Lil Nas X’s new collection, which has embellished a ton of expectation on the web. The craftsman told Variety on honorary pathway at the iHeart Radio Music Awards last month that his next music video will bring something new — and crazier — to the table.
“I want to do something in a different lane that’s crazier,” Lil Nas X said of what he envisions for his next music video. “I’m not sure what yet… “But that’s for when I make a main single or something.”
