BuzzFeed reports that the album is set to feature Megan thee Stallion Miley Cyrus, Doja Cat and Elton John.

Fast forward to yesterday afternoon, just hours before the project dropped, Lil Nas posted a video of himself on Twitter appearing to be in labour. The caption read:

"Having contractions"

Although followers were excited about the announcement, many found it to be off-colour and slightly insensitive to those with fertility issues.

@PrincessSamoyed commented:

"Seeing this as a black trans woman with dysphoria who just wants to bear a child of my own it would be nice if I could get the funds to afford the surgeries."

@mrsmizell added:

"I’ve experienced this 4 times and it’s no joking matter. I get the pregnancy and album. You’re birthing something awesome. Okay!! But you’ll never understand our pain with contractions. You wouldn’t last 3 full contractions. To that I say shits stopped being funny now!"

@dapenhaaqui had a comment that contrasted the rest, saying:

"My nephew saw your belly and got really confused about it so I told him that are men who can get pregnant (and your pregnancy is only marketing for your album) but there are trans men who can give birth. So thank you for helping me bring that up."
