    Lil Nas X Promotes Safe Sex In His New Music Video, Which Features A Cameo From Billy Porter

    Name a more iconic duo. I'll wait...

    The highly anticipated debut album of Lil Nas X has finally arrived, and with it, a fairly steamy music video.

    The musician dropped Montero on Friday, and fans were treated to the music video for "That's What I Want."

    In the video, Lil Nas X sings about his one and only desire: finding someone to love him...at least for the night!

    The video gets straight to the point. In the opening scene, Lil Nas X is dropped from the sky onto a football field in a pink uniform.

    He's carted into the locker room after an injury, but instead of getting medical attention, he gets a verrrry different kind of attention from his teammate.

    Cue a steamy makeout session, biting open a Durex condom, and shower sex.

    From there, we cut to a Brokeback Mountain–inspired scene.

    They then re-create the moment in Brokeback Mountain where he goes to his lover's house and finds that he's already married with a child.

    Turns out, Lil Nas X can channel some real emotions too.

    The video ends with the musician going to the altar alone, and none other than Pose's very own Billy Porter is there to greet him with a guitar to play through his feelings.

    Montero may be his debut album, but it's already a classic.
