Lil Nas X blasted onto the international stage with his video Montero / Call Me By Your Name, dressed in Marrie Antoinette wigs by Evanie Frausto and cute to devilish costumes, including a pink Greek-god-like-warrior number. Lil Nas X continues to thrill, this time dressed, comparatively pared back, in a vintage-looking crisp white monochrome suit. The video retraces his youth and talks about feelings of depression and solitude. A future version of himself, wearing the white-out lenses from Montero, revisits his youth in the video bringing love and hope to a place of darkness. Lost and lonely the character in Sun Goes Down does seem to experience a type of purgatory waiting until he is given the confidence to then be free and dance the night away. In an interview Lil Nas X described his style as "risky, vibrant, camp", and continues to do that in this video. He brings a vital perspective to the mainstream in music and fashion.
Sun Goes Down along with Montero are both taken off the artist's debut studio album titled Montero due out this summer.
