Pop Culture Happy Hour

Lil Nas X's Montero

In just two short years, Lil Nas X has proven he’s much more than “Old Town Road.” He’s taken a successful novelty song and parlayed it into a budding and influential music career. He’s come out as gay and arguably become pop’s biggest out star. He’s a master of performance art and marketing, and his eponymous debut studio album Montero easily became one of the year’s most anticipated projects.
