America's favorite boy band Brockhampton has released a new single and the video is trippy, gay as hell, and starring the new lord of Hell, Lil Nas X.
Brockhampton's latest single "Count On Me," is off the group's new album Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine, and the video has certainly got our attention as it stars "Montero" singer Lil Nas X and previous Brockhamption collaborator Dominic Fike.
As the video opens, Lil Nas X is riding in a convertible with Fike, a 25-year-old singer who released his first album, What Could Possibly Go Wrong in 2020. The two are chatting, and flirting a bit. "Who you listen to? Like, who you listening to in music lately," Nas asks Dominic.
"Old bands, like, really old bands, you probably wouldn't know any of them," Dominic replies, before offering up, "Radiohead."
"Who the f*ck is Radiohead," Nas laughs.
As the song kicks in, the video turns into a wild drug-fueled trip full of dancing, hallucinations, computer animation, and plenty of making out.
Nas and Fike start making out on the shore of a river, then move into the water where they continue. Soon, we see computer animated versions of the two singers not just making out, but intertwining their nude bodies together as they stretch out in impossible ways. Woah, this is wild.
Fike has never stated his sexuality publicly, but is currently dating Diana Silvers from the film Booksmart. Kevin Abstract, the frontman of Brockhampton, is gay, and while he doesn't appear in the video, he did direct it.
Lil Nas X recently scored his second number one song with "Montero (Call Me By Your Name), which topped the Billboard charts on the anniversary of Nas releasing the original "Old Town Road" remix with Billy Ray Cyrus. The song, which is about gay sex, and the video, which features biblical references and ends with Nas pole dancing to hell where he gives Satan a lap dance before breaking his neck, have riled up conservatives and pumped up gays across the country.
Over the last couple days, the song has allegedly gone missing from several streaming services, with Nas tweeting out that he would upload the song onto Pornhub if this continued. Columbia Records said they are working on the problem. "Thanks for all your comments regarding @LilNasX 'Montero (Call Me By Your Name),' It's unfortunately out of our control but we are doing everything possible to keep the song up on streaming services," they tweeted. "We will keep you up to date as we hear more. Thank you for understanding." Some believe this is all a maketing ploy for more streams as for many the track does appear on various streaming devices.
