Lil Nas X had plenty to be proud of on Friday (Sept. 17), thanks to the release of his long-awaited debut album, Montero. The collection is a head trip in many keys, with Lil Nas dipping from rap to rock, emo, pure pop, R&B and some pop-punk to take on topics including depression, anxiety, loneliness and homophobia while telling the story of a star on his rocket ride to fame.

He roped in A-list help along the way, of course, from Jack Harlow on single "Industry Baby," to Doja Cat ("Scoop"), Sir Elton John ("One of Me"), Megan Thee Stallion ("Dolla Sign Slime") and Miley Cyrus on album-ender "Am I Dreaming."

So it's no surprise that a number of fellow stars had high praise for the eclectic collection. Cyrus tweeted out a pic of the rapper wearing one of her shirts and proclaimed it "his gayest outfit yet!" before adding, "Congrats on baby Montero! You’ll always be my little baby! Thank you for having me apart of your debut album! I love you! #AmIDreaming OUT NOW!"

Chlöe Bailey of Chloe x Halle couldn't say enough nice things either, tweeting, "lmao our faces i am so damn proud of you. you are the sweetest being and deserve all the good coming to you. keep shutting s--t down, congrats on your album!!"

Even the Teletubbies wanted in on the action, asking, "Can we get a feature on the next album?" which Nas immediately gave a thumbs up to. He  responded, "alright bet! me and tinky winky on the hook, dipsy & po on the verses and we'll let laa laa do the outro."

Sir Elton also weighed in, as did Lizzo, whose response was super NSFW, while Megan spent time Friday morning retweeting a bunch of comments praising her verse.
