The video for Lil Nas X’s single “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” caused quite a stir, but one thing is no longer debatable. The rapper has admitted that the video for FKA Twigs’ song “Cellophane” was an influence on his music video.
He wrote in the caption of a clip of the singer’s video on his verified Instagram account, “I was not aware that the visual would serve as inspiration for those who worked on the effects of my video. I’d like to express my gratitude to Twigs for calling and telling me about the parallels between the two videos; I had no idea they were so close.”
