Here is Lil Nas X – MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) [SATAN’S EXTENDED VERSION (download). The original song runs for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, while the extended version is beefed up to 2 minutes and 50 seconds.
The longer version extends the outro with more of the instrumental and some lyrics from earlier in the track repeated.
X revealed the meaning behind the lyrics for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” — and he said the hit song, released Friday, is only partially inspired by the 2017 film of the same name starring Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet.
“It was one of the first gay films that I had watched,” Lil Nas X, whose real name is Montero, said in a video as part of Genius’ “Verified” YouTube series. “I thought the theme was so dope, like calling somebody by your own name is love, keeping the love between you two.” Though the song is named after the artist himself, that title is actually supposed to reference the man who inspired the song, as the two main characters called each other by their own names in the “Call Me By Your Name” film.
The lyric, “Cocaine and drinking and drinking with your friends / You live in the dark boy, I cannot pretend,” referenced a man he fell in love with who was not out as gay. Lil Nas X said the line was a “double entendre,” as he felt the man was in the dark because he was living “in the closet” and was unhappy.
The artist said “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” which enraged religious groups, right-wing pundits, and politicians who condemned the music video, was “the most real and the most vulnerable” he’d ever been on a song. “What it represents, the song itself within the industry — it has so many key points, which is why it’s gonna be important for me and a lot of other people. It felt really great.”
