“Creating this album has been therapy for me,” Lil Nas X said. “I’ve learned to let go of trying to control people’s perception of who I am, what I can do, and where I will be. I’ve realized the only opinion of me that really matters is my own.”

Earlier this week, Lil Nas X was named the Chief Impact Officer of Taco Bell. The CIO is a newly created honorary role that will collaborate on the brand experience. In the first 60 days, Lil Nas X and Taco Bell will craft an experience around the Montero album.


“Lil Nas X knows the job, the experience and the culture Taco Bell creates for its fans – including its people,” said Mark King, CEO of Taco Bell. “This unique partnership will deliver on more than just marketing, allowing us to tap into the genius of Lil Nas X to inspire our team members and align with our commitment to unlocking opportunities for young people.”
