Lil Nas X Claps Back at Trolls Over Album Sales

Lil Nas X is clapping back at his critics.

The rapper’s debut album Montero opened at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 last month with 126,000 equivalent album units, including 147 million streams, but took the runner-up spot to Drake’s Certified Lover Boy. While second-week sales are not officially in yet, it appears that he will slide to No. 3 behind Drake and YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s Sincerely, Kentrell.

Despite Nas’ solid numbers, which Billboard described as an “excellent performance for a debut album,” his critics couldn’t resist the opportunity to declare him a “flop,” claiming he “sold his soul” but it wasn’t enough to get him the No. 1 spot.

“Lil nas X danced on the devil, came out as gay & sold his soul just for his album to not overcome drake’s or Youngboy. FLOP. Real overcomes all!” wrote one Twitter account.

But Nas had the perfect response to the trolls. “y’all have tweeted 10 different versions of this tweet,” he replied, while touting his stats. “meanwhile my album has already sold almost 2 million copies worldwide and is already the 8th most streamed project of the year. cry & cope.”

He also retweeted an account that claimed Montero has sold an impressive 1,947,000 units worldwide in just two weeks.

The album, which features appearances from Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, and Jack Harlow, has also spawned three top 10 singles including “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” “Industry Baby,” and “That’s What I Want.”
