Lil Nas X Keeps U.K. Chart Crown With ‘Montero’

Lil Nas X enters a second week at No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart with “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” (Lil Nas X) while Demi Lovato misses out on the albums crown in an agonizingly close race.

“Montero” collects another 62,000 chart sales in the past cycle, including 8.6 million streams, the OCC reports. The U.S. rapper’s controversial song finishes comfortably ahead of the second-placed single, Justin Bieber’s “Peaches” (Def Jam) featuring Daniel Caesar & Giveon, up 3-2 to a new peak.

Also hitting new highs this week is Russ Millions & Tion Wayne’s “Body” (Atlantic), up 21-12; Australian rapper Masked Wolf’s “Astronaut In The Ocean” (Elektra) up 20-18; Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak’s Silk Sonic’s “Leave The Door Open” (Atlantic), up 23-20; and D-Block Europe & Raye’s “Ferrari Horses,” up 28-22 (D-Block Europe).
