Lil Nas X Secures No. 1 Spot For Controversial Single ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’
Written by Jay Holz on April 6, 2021
Hate it or love it, Lil Nas X is back at the number 1 spot with his controversial new single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”.
The song, which was catapulted by it’s statement-driven official video, is Nas X’s second Hot 100 No. 1. The first of course is his Diamond-certifed single “Old Town Road,” which reigned at the number 1 spot for a record 19 weeks in 2019.
Along with the release of the single, the artist also partnered with MSCHF to create 666 pairs of what they call “Satan shoes,” which most definitely added to the controversy. So much so, that Nike is suing the company that created the shoe (Lil Nas X isn’t named in the suit).
