Lil Nas X ‘gives birth’ to Montero
Lil Nas X has raised thousands for charity with his 'Montero' album 'baby registry'.
The 15 track album features a range of artists, such as Elton John and Doja Cat and has already received stellar reviews.
However, as well as this - the star has used the project to raise money for various charities.
The 'Industry Baby' artist teased his album with a fake baby bump, eventually joking that he 'gave birth' to his album.
Lil Nas posted various 'maternity' pictures with a fake baby bump and also hosted a 'baby shower' in the lead up to his abum.
However, the star impressively also posted a link to a 'baby registry', which allows for donations to be made to various charities.
The 'registry' was announced on Twitter, where the 22 year old wrote: "me and my team have set up a “baby registry” for many charities if you guys would like to donate." with a link to the webpage.
The website then details the relevant charities, which are said to be linked to a part of the 'Gilead COMPASS Initiative', which addresses issues surrounding HIV and AIDS in the Southern United States.
Each charity is associated with a particular song from 'Montero' and given a written description.
For example, track 'Don't Want It' is linked to organisation 'The Counter Narrative' which is said to: "[work] to build power among black gay men and work in coalition and solidarity with all movements committed to social and racial justice".
The full list of organisations can be found at: 'welcometomontero.com'.
One of the charities has reportedly already received $33,140 in donations as a result of the fundraiser.
