Our favorite 5-time Platinum recording artist has monopolized the airwaves with every release and proved time and time again that he wouldn't be a one-hit-wonder. It's safe to say the Old Town Road performer has created a larger-than-life reputation. His latest track currently sits at a staggering 180 million views on Youtube and shows no signs of slowing down. You'd think that Lil Nas X would let things simmer before shaking the industry again, but the 22-year-old has something else in store...

The Grammy winner shocked fans with a surprise announcement on Instagram: he will be performing his chart-topper on the Season 46 finale of Saturday Night Live. But that's just the beginning... Along with our favorite controversial single, Lil Nas X will also drop a new song from the upcoming album. We've been desperate for another taste of what's to come, and our prayers have finally been answered in a big way.

The pressure is on for Lil Nas X, who will be performing Montero live for the first time on May 22nd. We can't wait to see what the star brings to the stage, as he's proved with his latest music video that clearly nothing is off the table... SNL may not be ready, but we sure are! The rapper's performance will follow drivers license singer Olivia Rodrigo's appearance the week prior.
