Lil Nas X drops alternate Montero video and really shows what that mouth do
Lil Nas X has dropped a new version of “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” where he makes all the sounds with his mouth – and fans are obsessed.
The singer unveiled the new version of his chart-topping single on Friday (23 April) – and it came with a very queer Brady Bunch inspired music video.
The music video starts with Lil Nas X holding up a phone to his ear, asking: “Is it recording?” before launching into the opening notes of the song.
Throughout the video, nine versions of Lil Nas X show off their best queer looks, featuring extravagant headdresses, lipstick, a hot pink tank top and a spiky dog collar.
Once again, the “Old Town Road” rapper has proven that it’s his world, and we’re all just living in it.
After picking themselves up off the ground and dusting themselves off, Lil Nas X fans weighed in – and it’s fair to say they had thoughts.
Lil Nas X fans are going wild for his a cappella version of ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’
“Satan would appreciate this level of lip action,” one fan wrote.
“Can’t wait to see all nine giving Satan lap dances,” another wrote.
Another summed up all our thoughts, writing: “When you realise Lil Nas X making random noises is better than you actually singing.”
Fans were quick to share their joy on Twitter, too – while others just made some very on-point jokes about Pentatonix and Glee.

The new version of “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” comes just weeks after Lil Nas X released the original version, sending conservatives into a furious rage in the process.
The original music video shows the rapper sliding down a stripper pole to hell before giving Satan a lap dance – and Christians were not impressed.
The backlash only intensified when he announced he was releasing Satan shoes through a New York-based art collective, with a single drop of human blood in each shoe.

Sadly, the shoes never saw the light of day after Nike filed a lawsuit to stop them from being shipped to customers.
