Lil Nas X is No. 1 again.

The rapper’s latest single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” debuts atop the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his second No. 1 since “Old Town Road” reigned for a record 19 weeks in 2019.

“Montero” drew 46.9 million U.S. streams and sold 21,000 downloads in the week ending April 1. The song was accompanied by a controversial video that has over 92 million views on YouTube.

Taking to Twitter, Nas thanked his fans while slamming critics who called him a one-hit wonder. “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,” he wrote. “You told him to stop while he’s ahead. he could’ve gave up. but 4 multi platinum songs and 2 #1’s later, he’s still here. thank you to my team and my fans!”

He later added, “SUCK MY DICK! LETS GOOOO!!”

Nas last visited the No. 1 spot with “Old Town Road” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, which became the longest-running No. 1 on the Hot 100 at 19 weeks starting in April 2019. He also charted with “Rodeo” with Cardi B/Nas (No. 22, July 2019), “Panini” (No. 5, September 2019), and “Holiday” (No. 37, November 2020).

Nas knocks Justin Bieber’s “Peaches” featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon to No. 2, a week after the Justice single debuted atop the Hot 100.
