10/12/2021 09:30:21 PM

Author's Note: Following months of massive recognition, global phenomenon and Grammy Award winning artist Lil Nas X has at last released his debut album MONTERO via Columbia Records in late September.

Read on as this press release discuss more about work of this young critically-acclaimed music artist —a 15-track album that featured a defining-sound of pop, rock and rap, as well as various names in the international music scene.


Fresh off his MTV VMA win for VIDEO OF THE YEAR and his show-stopping Met Gala debut, global phenomenon and Grammy Award winning artist Lil Nas X has at last released his debut album MONTERO via Columbia Records today. The 15-track album was executive produced by Take A Daytrip and features tracks with Doja Cat, Elton John, Jack Harlow, Megan Thee Stallion and Miley Cyrus. 

Upon its release, MONTERO received overwhelmingly positive review from music critics. USA Today calls the album “an honest portrait of Lil Nas X at 22,” and praises the A lister’s “willingness to dabble in unadulterated pop, grimy rock and the rap-singing that has so far popularized his career.” Variety lauds the record’s “genre-stretching approach and refreshingly honest exploration of love and loneliness,” adding that it just proves how committed the rapper is in giving “voice to the fears and longings of a generation of queer kids.”

Launching alongside the album is the official video for “THATS WHAT I WANT.” The steamy and emotional visual features a story written by Lil Nas X with direction by STILLZ and includes a cameo from Billy Porter. 

Nas also premiered new visualizers for several album tracks, which all launched in support of a charity on his YouTube channel. This is a continuation of Nas’ collaboration with the Gilead COMPASS Initiative®, which supports hundreds of organizations working to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the Southern United States. 

Lil Nas X is also launching a very special and exclusive merch collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier on Monday, September 20 at 9am PT. The items will be available on

Lil Nas X’s new album, MONTERO is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Columbia Records and Sony Music.
