Lil Nas X’s ‘Montero (Call Me by Your Name)’ Remix Features Lil Nas X and Lil Nas X

Every musical artist lives in fear and dread of exactly one thing: that one day, either Pentatonix or a Pitch Perfect sequel will come for their music, and they will a cappella–fy it. If they’re lucky, they might make it out alive with one of those Jimmy Fallon classroom instrument covers. But Lil Nas X is smart. Lil Nas X is always one step ahead. Lil Nas X beat the Pentatonixes of the world at their own game on Friday, April 23, with an a cappella remix of his hit bop, “Montero (Call Me by Your Name).” The music video, titled “Lil Nas X — MONTERO (Call Me by Your Name) (But Lil Nas X Makes All the Sounds With His Mouth),” is a multicolored fantasy that gives Lil Nas X a chance to show off nine different looks, including a regal and rosy headpiece, multiple spiky collars, a sexy harness situation, and a couple of bold lip and Dior sunglasses situations that are honestly serving Grace Jones. The video also gives him a chance to do that Brady Bunch thing of looking over at different squares of himself and being goofy. It’s not 2019 anymore; the only celebrity features Lil Nas X needs on his remixes are he, himself, and X.
