Lil Nas X has done it again with his latest single, Montero (Call Me By Your Name). 'Cause seems like lovers and haters had an opinion about it, but we're here to update you with the latest on this chart topping hit.

We're still not over Lil Nas X's rookie single Old Town Road, that took him from Twitter personality to record breaking artist. Nas shattered genre barriers with this country-rap crossover and it really paid off. This hot track lasted an insane 19 weeks at number 1 and brought the Georgia native to new heights. Lil Nas X had us on the edge of our seats waiting for his first album this summer, but he sure dropped a bomb with this first taste.

Montero (Call Me By Your Name) was a controversial release to say the least, especially after his PG country collab with Billy Rae Cyrus. But clearly all the hype (good and bad) brought some serious traction to this song. After 4 weeks on the charts, including a spot at number 1, it's clear this artist is making some noise. The music video sits at 167 million views and is showing no signs of slowing down. But wait you guys, there's more! Lil Nas X took to Instagram to share this crazy news and a shoutout to his loyal supporters.

The Rodeo singer wrote, "MONTERO IS NOW PLATINUM! I HAVE THE BEST FANBASE OF ALL TIME! CANT WAIT FOR U GUYS TO HEAR THE ALBUM THIS SUMMER!" Us too man, us too. This latest chart topper brings Lil Nas X up to 5 singles that went Platinum. This good news comes after the controversial recall of his single-inspired Satan shoes. The artist faced backlash and even a lawsuit filed by Nike after his sneaker collab. Yikes. But it's all good for Nas, he's reacted with humor in his tweets.
