MONTERO marks Lil Nas X’s debut studio effort and his first non-single release since 2019’s 7 EP. “creating this album has been therapy for me. i’ve learned to let go of trying to control people’s perception of who i am, what i can do, and where i will be,” he wrote on Twitter. “i’ve realized the only opinion of me that really matters is my own.”
