0

Rapper Lil Nas X’s hit song about gay sex was nominated for three Grammy Awards on Tuesday, catapulting LGBTQ narratives to the top echelon of the music industry.

The provocative song – “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” – is shortlisted for Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Music Video at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, to be held on January 31 in Los Angeles.

Its title refers to the gay romance novel and the 2017 film “Call Me By Your Name”. But her lyrics speak less of love than lust, with phrases like “talking romantic?” You don’t even have to try “and” I’m not confused, only here to sin. ”

In the song’s clip, Lil Nas X is wowed by what appears to be the Garden of Eden, falls into hell, and gives the devil a lap dance.

Lil Nas X, real name Montero Lamar Hill, celebrated his appointments and thanked his fans in a twitter message chain.

“I don’t have to win a single award, really grateful for everything this year has brought me. And grateful for the trip. Love you guys,” the 22-year-old rapper wrote.

In total, he was nominated for five of the major music awards, including Album of the Year for his debut studio album, “Montero,” which open at # 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Last year he won two of six Grammy Awards for which he was nominated, including Best Music Video for his hit song “Old Town Road (Remix)”.

LGBTQ advocates have applauded the groundbreaking nature of the rapper’s appointments.

“Lil Nas X continues to open the doors to greater LGBTQ inclusion in rap and hip-hop, which will undoubtedly inspire and allow a new generation of artists to embrace their authenticity and individuality.” GLAAD CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said on Tuesday. .

Other LGBTQ artists who received Grammy nominations on Tuesday included singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, pop star Halsey and singer-songwriter Arlo Parks.
