Having predictably stirred up some controversy with his religiously themed video for the single J Christ, Lil Nas X is pushing forward - a documentary about his life and career has been released and he's got a new single.
Where Do We Go Now? is the new single - it's part of the soundtrack to the documentary, Long Live Montero.
Long Live Montero
Directed by Carlos López Estrada and Zac Manuel, Long Live Montero takes us behind-the-scenes of the Lil Nas X 2022-2023 tour of the same name.
Although primarily shot in verité style, flashbacks are also used to recap aspects of the life and career of Lil Nas X.
Not the immediate smash-hit that Lil Nas X is used to, J Christ entered the charts at Number 69 - an opportunity for innuendo that wasn't lost on Lil Nas X.
The coming out story
At the peak of his Old Town Road fame, Lil Nas X came out in one of the most nonchalant ways possible.
“Deadass thought I made it obvious…” he Tweeted, along with an image of the song’s artwork – a rainbow-coloured skyscraper.
“It was something I was considering just never doing ever, just taking to the grave or something, but I don’t want to live my entire life not doing what I want to do…” explained Lil Nas X, subsequently explaining in media interviews why he decided to publicly discuss his sexuality as a gay man. “I’m also opening doors for more people.”
