It’s… an album! Finishing one of the most memorable rollouts of the past few years, Lil Nas X finally gave birth to his debut album, Montero, this week.

It’s been a hell of a year for the 22-year-old artist. Proving (once again) that he isn’t the one-hit wonder many predicted he would become after the unfathomable success of his breakout hit “Old Town Road,” Nas X has spent the past year releasing hit singles, stirring up controversy, clapping back, and constantly going viral. In other words, he’s been impossible to ignore (not that you would want to).

By now, everyone knows that Lil Nas X is a talented provocateur who can bend the internet to his whims better than anyone we’ve ever seen. And after releasing multiple chart-topping singles, he’s proven he can consistently make hits. But one question remained: How will his talents translate to a full album? Well, now we have our answer. After giving Montero a few initial spins, two members of the Complex Music team (Eric Skelton and Jessica McKinney) shared some first impressions of the album.
