Lil Nas X Newest Song Most-Played In Saudi Arabia Where Gay Sex Punishable By Death

Lil Nas X’s newest song has become the most-played song in Saudi Arabia, a country in which gay sex can be punished by death, reports Unilad

The rapper recently dropped the gay themed MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name), which quickly became a hit. It’s being streamed all across the world and dominated the news conversation upon release, often due to right-wing fears about its religious imagery and “devil worshipping.”

It’s a cracking song – so much so, it’s topped the Apple Music chart in Saudi Arabia, one of a number of countries that prohibits homosexuality to the extent of enforcing the death penalty.
