Watch Lil Nas X bring “Montero” and “Sun Goes Down” to SNL

Lil Nas X’s raunchy “Montero” performance was hampered by a wardrobe malfunction.

May 24, 2021

Lil Nas X has well and truly entered album mode. Last week, he released "Sun Goes Down", his second single of the year and follow-up to the controversial viral No. 1 "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)", both of which are expected to feature on his forthcoming debut album, and on Saturday, he took to the storied stage of Saturday Night Live to perform both tracks. The performance of the former, during which the rapper and songwriter was accompanied by a posse of scantily clad dancers, was not without incident: during the latter half of the song, Lil Nas X's pants appeared to rip, requiring him to cover his crotch for the rest of the performance. In response, he tweeted that, unlike many of his stunts designed to induce virality, the wardrobe malfunction was not planned. Watch the performance of "Montero" above and "Sun Goes Down" below.
