Lil Nas X Tops iTunes WORLDWIDE With ‘Montero’ Album

Published: Friday 17th Sep 2021 by Sam

Lil Nas X‘s debut album ‘Montero’ arrived today to rapturous applause from fans and critics alike.

Led by chart-topper ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ and follow-up smash ‘Industry Baby,’ the set has been supported by what has been deemed one of the most well-executed marketing campaigns in recent memory.

Indeed, the set’s infectious music has been paired with high-octane performances and Nas’ quirky use of social media – which he has cleverly used as a potent promotional tool.

The masses have watched on and marveled as the performer played up being “pregnant” with the long-awaited LP. Each stage – from the announcement to the baby shower to the labor and delivery all were comically chronicled.

All, it seems, has created the perfect storm of buzz around the project.

See what we mean below…

‘Montero’ is all to a fire-fuelled start on iTunes, where it reigns at #1 on the Worldwide tally.

On a localized level, the album is also in pole position in the US, UK, Australia, Brazil, Canada, and Spain among others.

Meanwhile, it’s sitting just behind Drake on Apple Music US.

Suffice to say, ‘Montero’ is off to a fire-fuelled start.

    I gave it a curiosity play – the songs all sound too nursery-rhyme like for me, but good for him and I’m glad his fans are enjoying it.

    • Farrahs Luggage (8k Camila) September 18, 2021

      15 mins? He’s one of the biggest stars right now, most steamed male rapper, and is predicted to open with major numbers. Nickis the one that only has about 15 more mins to chart since her career ended this week worldwide. Hope she found a cure for those swollen balls

      You say goodbye to him, while you offer him your attention. Connect your neurons, for your own good.

  5. Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 September 17, 2021

        I’m looking for a physical copy of MONTERO! If either one of y’all Queens can find me a copy LMK 😋

  7. Ace Blanks September 17, 2021

    I respect his hustle. I’m still not a huge fan but now that I’ve seen him in interviews I can understand him more and respect what he does. It works for him! The music is still not my cup of tea but I did stream the songs with features and skimmed through it to give it a shot. Definitely not bad work at all just not for me so I still give him Kudos! He definitely deserves his success.

  8. Knowles September 18, 2021

    The album will open with at least 250k copies. Securing a #1 spot.

  9. True Tea September 18, 2021

    Queen Tingz…

  10. Farrahs Luggage (8k Camila) September 18, 2021

    Congrats king! Meanwhile, the same week he tops iTunes worldwide, Nicki (who allegedly refused to collaborate with with him) made a fool of herself WORLDWIDE.
