Rapper Lil Nas X just released a free rhythm game where you can twerk to his new song “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).” Yes, the main mechanic is twerking.
I gave it a try briefly before writing this post, and I have to admit that I had a hard time aligning my twerking with the arrows on the screen. (What a sentence. Also hi Dad, who gets email notifications when I get a Verge story.) But the game says I somehow got 43 arrows out of 50, and a rating of two and a half stars out of three. I’ll take it!
The new game is Lil Nas X’s latest internet stunt to promote the new song. He also partnered with internet collective MSCHF to release the “Satan Shoes”, which were custom Nikes that supposedly had a drop of blood in them. Nike sued MSCHF over the shoes and sought a temporary restraining order, but MSCHF said it has no intention of shipping the 666th pair.
