RS Charts: Lil Nas X Rides 'Montero (Call Me By Your Name)' to Number One

Lil Nas X scored his second Number One on the Rolling Stone Top 100 Songs chart with “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” earning more than 20,000 downloads and more than 24 million streams. “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” appeared earlier this year in a Super Bowl commercial. Its official release was accompanied by a music video that became an instant sensation — Lil Nas X gives Satan a lap dance before killing him and taking his place — and the release of 666 pairs of “Satan shoes” that made headlines by drawing a suit from Nike, which accused the rapper of trademark infringement. 

All of this attention helped Lil Nas X knock Justin Bieber’s “Peaches” out of Number One after just a week at the top of the chart. That single, which features Giveon and Daniel Caesar, fell to Number Two. Bieber maintained seven songs on the RS 100.

The Rolling Stone Top 100 chart tracks the most popular songs of the week in the United States. Songs are ranked by song units, a number that combines audio streams and song sales using a custom weighting system. The chart does not include passive listening like terrestrial radio or digital radio. The RS 100 chart is updated daily, and each week Rolling Stone finalizes and publishes an official version of the chart, covering the seven-day period ending with the previous Thursday.

Moneybagg Yo jumped into the Top 25 with “Hard for the Next,” a collaboration with Future that picked up 9.6 million streams. “Hard for the Next” was trailed by Taylor Swift’s “You All Over Me” (Number 26, 8.3 million streams), a track written over a decade ago and just released with additional vocals from Marren Morris and new production from Aaron Dessner, who also helped Swift with her Number One albums Folklore and Evermore

In addition, Coi Leray jumped to Number 48 with “Big Purr (Prrdd)” (7.6 million streams) a new collaboration with rising rapper Pooh Shiesty. “Big Purr (Prrdd)” is Leray’s second recent hit, following “No More Parties,” which sat at Number 28 with 9.2 million streams.
