Lil Nas X has defiant message for his haters after topping the charts with his bottoming banger

Lil Nas X

Lil Nas X proved that blasphemy really does pay after riding his bottoming banger “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” into hell and straight to number one in the charts.

The song about gay sex reached its rightful spot at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts on Monday (5 April), less than two weeks after its debut.

In its first week alone it drew 46.9 million US streams and sold 21,000 downloads, according to MRC Data, and attracted 1.1 million radio airplay audience impressions in the week ending 4 April.

It’s his second US number one after his megahit “Old Town Road” led for a record 19 weeks in 2019 – and to say the star is celebrating would be an understatement.

“CALL ME BY YOUR NAME NUMBER 1 SONG IN THE WORLD AHHHHHH,” Lil Nas X tweeted ecstatically after the news broke. “LET’S GO GAY AGENDA!!!!”

“I hope my haters are sad. I hope they are crying. I want your tears to fill my Grammy cup,” he continued as he kept the celebration going in a string of tweets.

“Y’all told a 19 year old who had just escaped the lowest point of his life that he would never have a hit again.

“You told him to stop while he’s ahead. He could’ve gave up. But four multi platinum songs and two number ones later, he’s still here. Thank you to my team and my fans! ily.”

Even more adorably, the star released a motivational video he filmed in June 2020 to congratulate his future self.

“Hello, Lil Nas X in the future,” he told himself. “I wanna say I’m proud of you. I’m proud of you n***a! Yeah! Congratulations, you deserve all the good s**t that’s happening to you right now.

“You pushed through, ‘cuz [breaks into unintelligible excitable noises]. It’s been a lot of s**t.”
