Lil Nas X Has A Message For Haters As 'Montero (Call Me By Your Name)' Gallops To No. 1

furthermore to calling him by your name, you could also call Lil Nas X a two-time Billboard No. 1 artist. The 21-year-old’s latest single, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” reached the best spot of the Billboard Hot 100 charts on April 5. In response, he’s rightfully taken to social media to revel in the achievement and, naturally, share a few SpongeBob memes along the way.

“Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” is Lil Nas X’s second single to hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts right after his record-pulverizing hitOld Town Road" back in 2019. Now, with a fresh record under his belt, he's taking a stand against haters who have attempted to undermine him throughout his meteoric rise to stardom.

“Y’all told a 19-year-old who'd just escaped the lowest point of his life that he would never have a hit again,” he tweeted. “You instructed him to stop while he’s ahead. He could’ve given up. Nevertheless four multi-platinum songs and two #1’s later, he’s still here.”

Lil Nas X's latest single is his most personalized yet, so much so that he even penned a letter to his 14-year-old self about his decision to release it. Its visually stunning music video, which sees him spiral down a stripper pole to hell and seducing the devil, has garnered over 96 million views at the time of this writing and, certainly, a flurry of reactions online due to its religious imagery.

In true Lil Nas X fashion though, he has effortlessly shut down anyone who's attempted to come at him online with both quick wit and honesty. “I hope my haters are sad. I hope they are crying,” he wrote. “I want your tears to fill my Grammy cup.”

Lil Nas X then shared a clip that had been filmed back in June 2020 to congratulate his future self on all of his success. “Hello Lil Nas X in the future. The last video I recorded was super sad and the sound excellent was shit, so I took it as a sign. Right now I’m making this new video and I'd like to mention I’m overjoyed of you!” He says in the clip. “Congratulations! You deserve all the good shit that’s happening to you now. You deserve all that shit on God. I’m overjoyed of you — you pushed through.”

And to all of his supporters, he had one final message: “All jokes aside, we get to control our own destiny. Never let the world determine it for you. No matter how dark it might look, keep fucking going!”
