Lil Nas X’s ‘Montero’ Receives First Week Projections

Lil Nas X Releases Tracklist for 'Montero' Debut Album

Drake’s Certified Lover Boy will have competition at the top of the charts for its third week. Lil Nas X’s Montero album is projected to move up to 140,000 album-equivalent units in his first week. According to Hits Daily Double, 17,000 – 20,000 of those units are pure album sales.

The new album features Jack Harlow, Doja Cat, Elton John, Megan Thee Stallion, and Miley Cyrus.

In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Lil Nas X responded to the parents who call him out by saying he is too inappropriate for their children to watch him at award shows or look at his music visuals.

“I feel like I used to [have a responsibility], but now it’s just like, ‘So? Like, f*** your kids,’” he said. “We really get one chance to do this — at least to my knowledge — I don’t know what happens when we die or whatnot. So it’s like, I’m not about to pander to your kids, or you. I even have to do this with my family members, like, because my family members may not always agree with what I’m doing or whoever I’m dating, they may not agree. But, it’s like…I honestly, really, truly wanna live by…this is our life.”

Last week, Certified Lover Boy topped the charts for the second straight week, earning 236,000 album-equivalent units this week. According to Billboard, Drake’s total has surpassed 849,000, closing on becoming platinum before the month’s end. The album opened at No. 1 a week ago with the year’s biggest week for an album, 613,000 units.

Do you think Lil Nas X and Montero will go No. 1?

Lil Nas X Announces His “Little Bundle of Joy”

Lil Nas X Announces His "Little Bundle of Joy"

The birth date is set for Sept. 17.

If there is one thing that Lil Nas X does often and well, it’ll be trolling. We are a few weeks away from the arrival of his debut album, Montero, and the “Old Town Road” artist is not taking his foot off the gas anytime soon.

The album features Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, Jack Harlow, Elton John, and Miley Cyrus.

He has made headlines with provocative visuals, a Nike lawsuit, a pants-ripping performance on SNL, and more throughout the year. With the rollout in full swing, Lil Nas X will keep the audience entertained and talking.

He recently followed up his re-make of Drake’s pregnant emoji-ridden cover art for Certified Lover Boy with one of his own. Instead, emoji-men were holding their pregnant belly. That was only a preview of what would come next.

On Thursday, Lil Nas X took to social media to reveal pregnant pictures for the upcoming delivery for MONTERO.

“SURPRISE,” he tweeted, “I can’t believe I’m finally announcing this. My little bundle of joy ‘MONTERO’ is due September 17, 2021.”

“This is my baby,” he told ‘PEOPLE.’

Even Maury Povich jumped in on the fun with his renowned catchphrase.

HOW IT ALL CAME TOGETHER

What started as a joke between himself and his stylist turned into a full-on maternity shoot. He called up his stylist after drawing inspiration from Megan Thee Stallion’s “Dolla Sign Slime,” he called up his stylist.

“She was like, ‘Wow, this all comes together. Your album. Your baby.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, this is my baby, huh?’ As a joke, she was like, ‘Yeah, you should do a pregnancy shoot,’” said Nas X to PEOPLE.

Drake would release his CLB cover as a perfect setup for the maternity shoot photos, as timing would have it.

With the delivery of his baby on the way, Lil Nas X says, “finally found a great balance between being as real as possible within my music and making a hit song.”
