Hot 100: Lil Nas X Makes History As ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ Debuts At #1

Published: Monday 5th Apr 2021 by Sam

Lil Nas X has done it.

The performer’s controversial new single ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ has launched at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Full story below…

The 21-year-old star has scored the second chart-topper of his career with the release on everyone’s tongue.

He first achieved pole position in 2019 with his breakthrough hit ‘Old Town Road’ – which reigned for 20 weeks.

So how did the 21-year-old pull off the win?

Powered in earnest by its highly viral music video, ‘Montero’ amassed US streams of 46.9 million, 21,000 digital downloads, and a multi-format radio audience of 1.1 million.

The song makes history as just the 51st song to debut at #1 on the Hot 100 and serves as Nas’ first to achieve the feat.

‘Montero’ also sees Nas become the second-youngest male to debut at #1. The record-holder remains Justin Bieber, who debuted at #1 in 2015 with his hit ‘What Do You Mean?’

It notably replaces Bieber’s ‘Peaches’ at the top; a song which also premiered at #1 just a week ago.

    Never heard this song not one time on the radio. I hear Cardi B, Drake, Pop Smoke and that Chris Brown (Go Crazy Remix) song more than any other songs on the radio..congrats to him but I don’t see how this is #1

    • Meme April 5, 2021

      Sounds like you listen to 1 type of radio station.

    • DC April 5, 2021

    Lil nas x and Camila are actually friends. 2 successful artists with 2 number one songs
    We love that 😍😍

    Normani has been in the industry longer than lil nas x, but compare both their careers today

    Lil nas x doesnt even have an album out

    Talent will always win.
    No amount of sympathy and pity and victimization can ever give u are career.
    Miss f*******

    • ALTERNATIVE FACTS April 5, 2021

      Here you go again. So far you’ve ruled out Normani’s name multiple times today per usual. Which means that you think about her all day ?? 🤔🤨 OBSSESSED I hope someone DOX you. You need to be revealed coward

    Let’s face the truth, this song is gonna make the biggest drop from #1 next week 💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿 #1 > #100. 😂🤣😂🤣

      “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” by Lil NasX is currently expected to spend a second week at #1 on the Hot 100 with about 300 points.

      Audio streams and radio airplay are expected to rise while video streams and sales will fall.

  7. James April 5, 2021

    Hmmm…… I’m shocked. How did this make it number 1. There’s so many other successful songs released this year that didn’t make it to Number 1 that had huge promotion and radio play. This is very much calculated I’m not surprised.

  8. Roberta FlackSabbath April 5, 2021

    Good for him. A second #1.

    Try calling him a one hit wonder now, hateful Trump lickers!

      Never be the same, a solo song outpeaked normani’s entire discography

      The last time normani saw the inside of the billboard hot 100 was November 2019, back when trump was still in office

      UHoesFunny aka Fancy CLOWN, go and stick a knife up your ass and then use the same knife to slit ur throat u 𝐛𝐢𝐭𝐜𝐡! That fact that you had time to write out a long ass comment just proves that you have no life and don’t deserve to live.

      • UHoesFunny April 5, 2021
