On March 26, Lil Nas X will be releasing his first single of 2021, which is titled “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).” The name of it is based on his first name. The announcement was made on Tuesday as the Atlanta native also shared the cover art for the single. The excitement is very real from his fan base right now but Nas X did take the time to respond to someone who made an ignorant comment on Twitter about the Montero cover art being “gay,” as that is Nas X’s sexual orientation.

The cover art for “Montero” features two clones of Lil Nas X completely nude as clouds cover each other’s private areas. One of them is shooting an arrow at the other one as both appear to look ready. For Nas X‘s response to the Twitter user’s homophobic comment, he calmly replied with “The song gay too, bro.” Fans of Nas X absolutely loved his reply as he didn’t let that man get him out of character and as Nas X continues to be himself.
