Lil Nas X’s latest ‘Montero’ remix features nothing but Lil Nas X

The rapper has released yet another new version of ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ — this time, he makes all the sounds with his mouth

The new versions of Lil Nas X’s latest hit, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”, just keep on coming. The latest — catchily titled “Montero (Call Me By Your Name) (But Lil Nas X Makes All The Sounds With His Mouth)” — does exactly what it says on the tin.

The a cappella rendition of the chart-topping track comes alongside new visuals that see the rapper flaunt no less than nine looks against a multi-coloured backdrop (having already channelled Marie Antoinette and a host of hellish demons in the original video).

Prior to the vocal-only remix, Lil Nas X shared an instrumental version of “Montero”, as well as a “24/7 lo-fi hip hop beats”-inspired remix you can study to. Last week, he also singled out Rihanna and Bad Bunny as dream collaborators for a new version of the song.

It’s worth noting that a slew of “Old Town Road” remixes — featuring everyone from Billy Ray Cyrus, to Young Thug, and BTS leader RM — are credited with helping the breakout song become the longest-running number one in US chart history. In January this year, it also made history as the most certified song, with the award of its 14th platinum certification.

That’s not to say that the original version of “Montero” didn’t make an impact on its own, though. On release, the visuals in particular caused controversy for their combination of unabashed sexuality and biblical imagery. Earlier this month, it mysteriously disappeared from streaming services (though it has since been restored).
