Lil Nas X Performs “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” & “SUN GOES DOWN” on Saturday Night Live
- American rapper Lil Nas X appeared on Saturday Night Live to perform “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” and “SUN GOES DOWN”.
This marks his musical guest debut on Saturday Night Live.
Both songs will appear on his upcoming debut album “Montero”, which will be released this summer.
“MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” was released back in March. The track reached No.1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles chart.
Lil Nas X said of the song, “i wrote a song with our name in it. it's about a guy i met last summer. i know we promised to never come out publicly, i know we promised never to be 'that' type of gay person, i know we promised to die with the secret, but this will open doors for many other queer people to simply exist. you see this is very scary for me, people will be angry, they will say i'm pushing an agenda. but the truth is, i am. the agenda to make people stay the fuck out of other people's lives and stop dictating who they should be. sending you love from the future.”
“SUN GOES DOWN” was released on just a few days ago along with the music video.
He said, “i named the song 'sun goes down' because i feel like at night is when those thoughts you try to avoid really start to hit and you can't escape them.”
