Don't Worry, Lil Nas X's 'Montero (Call Me By Your Name)' Isn't Being Pulled From Streaming Services

Lil Nas X tweeted his latest Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 single, "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)," will be off streaming services as soon as Wednesday (April 14). But Billboard can confirm that the song is not being removed.

The panic among Lil Nas X fans swelled on Tuesday when the rapper wrote on Twitter, "since call me by your name is no longer working on many streaming services i will be uploading the audio to pornhub at 3pm est." He later followed up to say he was "not even joking," and pleaded with followers to "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."

The song earned the 22-year-old rapper his second leader on the Hot 100 after "Old Town Road," which remains the longest running No. 1 song in the chart's history. "Montero" also spends its first week atop the Billboard Global 200 this week (chart dated April 17). With 109.3 million streams, Lil Nas X's latest hit is the first to log more than 100 million streams globally in two months, cruising past Olivia Rodrigo's "Drivers License."

"Montero" is also spending its second week at No. 1 on Billboard's Streaming Songs chart.
