Lil Nas X is serving the boots house down on this Long Live Montero tour!

A video posted on the rapper’s Tik Tok from his world tour on Thursday (8 September) shows the ‘Industry Baby’ rapper dancing to Beyoncé’s Renaissance hit, ‘PURE/HONEY’.

Dressed in a pink glittery chest-exposing ensemble that could be referencing Madonna’s 1990 MTV Awards performance of ‘Vogue’ but with a modern and classic Lil Nas X spin the 23-year-old duck walks and gives plenty of arm choreography as his dancers, dressed in sunshine yellow outfits fan him in the background.

♬ star walkin – lil nas x

Based on the screams from the audience, they were clearly living (as are we!)

In the comments, one person asked: “How you perform Beyoncé before Beyoncé performs Beyoncé?!” before hailing sich a feat as “Iconic”

Another simply added: “SLAY”

The Long Live Montero tour kicked off in Detroit, Chicago on 6 September. Lil Nas X will tour across North America before jumping across the pond in November when he heads over to Europe before one performance at London’s Eventim Apollo on Saturday 12 November. 

The Montero album, debuted last year and featured hits such as ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’, ‘Industry Baby’, and ‘That’s What I Want’.
