Updated: Apr 16, 2021

Recently, the artist Lil Nas X released a video for his song "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)," and as it's known on Lil Nas X, the video was not an ordinary thing. It contains many hidden meanings in which the opinions of the audience differed. The video has been seen more than 64 million times on YouTube over the six days since its release. The video is a masterpiece of 3D art and Visual FX work. As we said, the audience made an effort to analyze and interpret the meanings in the video.

So we will find who said briefly that the video is a reference to the bible; in the song, he says, "if eve ain't in your garden you know that you can... call me by your name" the alien person was like the serpent/ the devil in the garden in Genesis. He was judged by the people and kept his original mindset as Jesus did. And others see that the video is about a gay man's sexual relationship with a closeted guy on the DL. It speaks to how many of our black and Latinos men remain in the closet despite being gay or bi. "Cocaine and drinking with your friends / you live in the dark, boy, I cannot pretend / Call me when you want..."

Until Lil Nas X himself appeared and revealed the meaning behind the title, which was profoundly inspired by the 2017 film. He was the same name and needed to make an anthem where he completely embraced and accepted his sexuality. Also, he said that the initial lines of the song track the literal connection that he had with the guy, from being called up, his desire to "catch you throwing smiles in my face," and seeing his friend celebrating, taking drugs, and drinking in the quarantine.

"I can't pretend I don't see you doing this sh**, and I can't pretend I don't notice these things," he said about his companion's sexuality. He said: "That was one of the first gay films that I had watched, and I thought the theme was so dope of calling somebody by your own name." In general, Lil Nas X is glad for how the song ended up - regardless of whether it is causing debate - because he needs to show the industry that this strange narrative can exist infamous music.
