American Rapper Lil Nas X has taken to social media to announce his new project with an over-the-top pregnancy shoot, complete with a bump and flower crown.
Lil Nas in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, revealed that the idea to do the photoshoot came after listening to Megan Thee Stallion’s verse on his new song “Dolla Sign Slime” for the first time.
“I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is amazing,’ so I immediately called my stylist,” he says. “She was like, ‘Wow, this all comes together. Your album. Your baby.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, this is my baby, huh?’ As a joke, she was like, ‘Yeah, you should do a pregnancy shoot.’“
“I was like, ‘You know what? That’s actually brilliant,’” he continues. “So now we have this entire thing coming out, and it’s going to be amazing.”
Sharing the photos on his Instagram, he wrote; ‘Surprise! I can’t believe I’m finally announcing this. My little bundle of joy “MONTERapper Lil Nas X wRO” is due September 17, 2021.’
