Lil Nas X “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” A Cappella Remix
If you’ve had Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” on repeat since March like the rest of us, you might want to hit pause to give the new a cappella version a listen (trust us, it’s worth it). Paired with a devilishly sexy music video that fans soon deemed a visual masterpiece (and detractors deemed blasphemous), the original song quickly became an anthem of sexuality and self expression for the LGBTQ+ community. Just a few weeks later, “Montero” was suspiciously removed from streaming on Spotify and Apple Music for some users without explanation. But the new a cappella version means we have twice as much reason to listen, and the stripped-down version might be even better than the original.
“Lil Nas X – MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) But Lil Nas X makes all the sounds with his mouth,” Lil Nas X captioned the video on Instagram. “This has 2010 youtube a cappella energy [sic],” MTV’s Instagram account added, and we absolutely agree. From the colorful Brady Bunch-style background to the spot-on vocals (how does he do it?!) and club-worthy outfits, everything about this video screams perfection. Creativity meets talent in the a cappella version of “Montero,” so treat yourself to a listen (or five) here.
