Lil Nas X is running a victory lap after his debut album Montero churned out three top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100.

As Montero debuts at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 this week with 126,000 equivalent album units earned, according to MRC Data, "Industry Baby" with Jack Harlow, former No. 1 hit "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)" and "Thats What I Want" are all in the top 10 region of the Hot 100 (dated Oct. 2), at Nos. 2, 9 and 10, respectively, and eleven songs from the album chart on the all-genre tally. And he had something to say to both his fans and haters about it.

"LETS F---IN GOOOOOOOOOO! THANK U TO MY FANS ILY! AND TO MY HATERS, SUCK MY F---IN D---!" he wrote on Twitter, while sharing an artistic naked portrait against a sunset background and graphics of his chart stats.

Lizzo pointed out all the reasons LNX deserved to pop some bubbly in a congratulatory tweet to him. The "Truth Hurts" singer/rapper also mused over what the 22-year-old artist demonstrated in his latest charting project.

"CONGRATULATIONS TO @LILNASX!!!!" she wrote on Twitter. "#MONTERO IS BEAUTIFUL, HEARTFELT & NECESSARY… 3 TOP 10s AND A #2 DEBUT IS A BIG DEAL YOU SHOWED US HOW TO INNOVATE AND BE TRUE TO OURSELVES—I HOPE UR HAVING CHAMPAGNE TODAY— CELEBRATE YOURSELF."
