Lil Nas XThe record label responds to the Georgia rapper’s claims about his new single, “Montero (Call me by your name)”, which may be removed from streaming services tomorrow (April 14).
On Tuesday April 13th, Columbia Records released a statement via Twitter, which read, “Thanks for all your comments regarding @LilNasX ‘Montero (Call me by your name),’ It’s unfortunately out of our control but we’re doing our best. possible to keep the song on streaming services. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more. Thank you for your understanding. “
Meanwhile, Billboard reported this afternoon that the song will not be removed from music services.
The label’s statement comes hours after Lil Nas X informed fans of the uncertainty surrounding his hit being available to air from tomorrow. While he didn’t give any concrete reasons why the track could be removed from music platforms, Nas X suggested fans save the track from YouTube as a backup plan.
“Not even kidding. Everyone is streaming call me by your name today because it might not be available tomorrow and I really can’t do anything about it. Thanks for all the support tho!,” Lil Nas X wrote in his initial tweet this morning.
In a follow-up message, he typed, “Everyone on screen is recording youtube audio / video so you have the worst-case song in your gallery.”
The reworked Nike Air Max 97 sneaker, which was created by MSCHF Product Studio, Inc. and worn by Lil Nas X in their music video, was also pushed back by the sneaker giant. Probably because of the satanic design elements on the shoe.
Six hundred and sixty-six pairs of “Satan shoes“were available for sale, but after Nike took legal action against the Brooklyn, New York-based art company and then settled, the sneakers were ordered no longer to be released.
Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call me by your name)“achieved success despite the background noise surrounding the record and accompanying music video. So much so that the effort debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 April 5.
