LIL NAS X (born Montero Hill) released a controversial debut album on September 17th of this year. I can’t say I favor every song however, there is definitely one song that I had to add to the Fine Girl Fall playlist. As we say goodbye to Hot Girl Summer, Lil Nas teamed up with Megan Thee Stallion to let the haters know that they can run with the rumors. These breakout stars are staying true to themselves regardless of the narrative.
Track 9, “Dollar Sign Slime” is more than enough for me to give ‘MONTERO’ a seal of approval. People tend to give dude a bad rep by saying that he capitalized on kids with “Old Town Road” and then switched up on his audience. I have to completely disagree. I don’t think Lil Nas X ever intended on kids being his target audience. “Old Town Road” happened to become a catchy tik tok tune much like Megan’s “Savage”. Truth be told, the album is not that bad. Folks just don’t like it because y’all don’t know how to monitor these kids. I digress.
All the real hot girls know that when you hear “REAL HOT GIRL SH*T”, it’s about to go down. Even if it was a solo track, I still would enjoy it but Meg just makes it 10x better. In less than 10 days, the audio visual has racked up over 7 million views because y’all know the vibes. The song is amongst the top 3 most listened to songs on the album joining self titled “Montero” & “Industry Baby”. All in all, congratulations to Lil Nas X and all of his collaborators for the 217 million streams in the first week via Spotify.
Just last week, Nas let the fans #askMONTERO questions via twitter after the album release. These are some of the things they really wanted to know:
