Lil Nas X has topped the UK singles chart with Montero (Call Me By Your Name).

It is the second time the US rapper has topped the chart following the success of his song Old Town Road in 2019.

His new release was streamed 6.8 million times in the UK this week and is the second single to debut at number one this year, following Olivia Rodrigo’s Drivers License in January.
