Lil Nas X’s “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” May Be Leaving Streaming Services For Good


It’s true, Lil Nas X has another hit song. “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” is topping the charts as expected, following Lil Nas X’s provocative devil-worshiping video. After the video stirred up conversation, the “Old Town Road” rapper released 666 pairs of custom Satan shoes, each with a drop of human blood in the soul. Basically, his entire rollout has been a collection of viral moments, because, well, viral is all Lil Nas X knows.

All of this could be coming to a sudden halt, though, as the song is slowly (and mysteriously) leaving streaming services. Yesterday (April 13th), fans reported noticing the track was unable to stream, and Lil Nas X warned his Twitter, saying, “not even joking. Everybody stream call me by your name hard today because it may no longer be available tomorrow and there’s nothing I can really do about it. thanks for all the support tho!” As of now the song appears to still be available for US-based users to stream, although a random array of regions have been effected.

Don’t worry, though. It’s still unclear why the song would be taken down, but Lil Nas X promised his fans the track would be uploaded to Pornhub today, in case you still wanted to listen. A fan even encouraged screen recordings of the audio, in case that video gets taken down as well. Lil Nas X, of course, retweeted that idea. A curious development altogether, the question remains if this is yet another marketing ploy by the artist, or if there is a serious dispute with the song. Either way, be sure to stream “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” while you still can.
