Lil Nas X has decided to announce his debut album, Montero, in an over-the-top way. The 22-year-old musician will be pushing out his ‘baby’ on the 17th of September, for which he did an over-the-top pregnancy shoot which was coupled with a flower crown and a baby bump. In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Montero Lamar Hill stated he came up with this idea for an album cover after he listened to the verse of Megan Thee Stallion on his song Dolla Sign Slime for the very first time.
Lil Nas X Announces Album As His Baby
After the idea struck Lil Nas X, he immediately called his stylist who exclaimed that it all came together for his first album and was definitely his baby. This led to an over-the-top photoshoot which highlighted the singer with a baby bump. In fact, when the singer heard of this, he thought that the idea was absolutely brilliant. Hence, the album comes out which is going to be amazing.
The photo couldn’t have come out at a better time, as Lil Nas X recently uploaded a parody of Drake’s Certified Lover Boy cover art which had several pregnant women emojis- where his art had pregnant men instead.
As far as this goes, the singer stated that he couldn’t believe his luck that everything was lined up so perfectly for something brilliant to happen. When the rather interesting conception of this album was discussed upon, the singer responded that not only was he the father, but also the mother. As an afterthought, he stated that maybe the producers were the dads or uncles of this album.
Lil Nas X’s Montero was largely created in 2020 when the singer was in lockdown. On Twitter, the creator stated that the last week was nothing but therapeutic. He claimed that he had been changed in a lot of ways. He thinks he has changed the way he had been handling the situations.
