Call me by your name lyrics

In less than two weeks since its release on March 26th, the music video for the song «Montero (Call Me By Your Name)» by rapper, singer and songwriter Lil Nas X has reached more than 100,000,000 views on YouTube and quickly climbed to #1 on almost all music charts around the world.

Since the release of «Montero (Call Me By Your Name)» there has been an important stir and controversy around the audiovisual because the content is full of mostly biblical symbolism that the artist used to tell his own experience with the repression, guilt and fear that the church inflicts on LGTBI people around the world.

Conservative sectors condemn the artist and even asked for the material to be banned so that it does not reach young people. Homophobia and machismo within the musical environment also made itself felt.

In «Montero (Call Me By Your Name), Lil Nas X chooses to tell us his story and takes us on a kind of journey through his own process of acceptance and healing from trauma as a queer person, a person who has taken a while to fight fears, face them and show himself as he is.

Montero spanish lyrics

The video begins with a voiceover by the singer himself. «In life, we hide the parts of ourselves that we don’t want the world to see. We lock them away. We tell them, «No.» We forbid them. But here we don’t. Welcome to Montero,» Lil Nas X says, referring to his real name.

We then see Lil Nas X strumming his guitar in the Garden of Eden, where he meets a snake version of himself. There’s meaning behind the dual roles. «He plays the role of Adam and the snake that makes him give in to the carnal desires he was forbidden to explore, and we see the two merge and become one,» Columbia Records explains in a statement to the press.

But this is more than just a sexy scene. After the sensual dance, Lil Nas X steals Satan’s crown of horns; the whole act shows how the singer «harnesses his sexuality to seduce the devil and strip him of his power as a force of evil and dismantle the throne of judgment and punishment that has kept so many of us from embracing our true selves out of fear,» The Columbia Records press release explains.

MONTERO’s video shows Nas interpreting all the characters of the story through some spectacular looks and several biblical references. First we see the singer representing Adam and the serpent in the Garden of Eden where the two kiss and merge after the serpent seduces him. He then finds himself chained in the coliseum where other versions of himself judge and stone him, until he is executed. At that point he begins to ascend to heaven but halfway up a pole appears which he grabs hold of and begins to dance towards hell. Once there, he seduces Satan with an erotic dance and after breaking his neck, he steals his horns in the form of a crown. With them he transforms himself, with glowing eyes and wings, into the new king of hell.
