Lil Nas X reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart with ‘Montero (Call Me by Your Name).’
The song with a crazy music video is his second Hot 100 number 1, after his debut song ‘Old Town Road,’ featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, broke all records for 19 weeks in 2019.
Lil Nas X made a statement Monday on Instagram and detailed how he created the song in 2020. In the statement, he thought it was over for him because he was trying so hard to be perfect, to please everyone, and not make any enemies.
He said he worked hard with his crew in 2020 and spent months creating the song. The song’s production process was so challenging that Lil Nas X said that he cried over and over in the studio. He later said that he did not stop fighting and added a melody that came to his mind. He also said that Montero is the biggest song in the world because it has many messages for the LGBTQ community.
He also thanked everyone who supported him and sent his love to them.
Here’s what Lil Nas X said:
“last year I was sitting in my apartment thinking it was all over for me. I was trying so hard to be perfect, to please everyone, and not make any enemies. that stifled me creatively.
I felt so sorry for myself. but around this time in 2020 I pulled it together, me, Daytrip, Omer, & Roy, worked for months on end. one day in June I was working on a song and found myself leaving the studio every 10 minutes to cry.
But I didn’t stop working, a melody came to my mind. Call me when u want na-na-na-na na, and I knew it was something special about it, fast forward a year later it’s the biggest song in the world. thank you guys so much. we get to decide OUR own destiny, never let the world decide it for YOU! I love you!”
