Lil Nas X’ Montero’ Battles With Nathan Evans’ ‘Wellerman’ For U.K. Chart Crown

Lil Nas X will need to see off the challenge of a sea shanty to secure a second straight week atop the U.K. singles chart.

The U.S. rapper’s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” is out front in the early stages of the chart week, though not by much.

“Montero” leads the First Look chart, which gauges the popularity of singles based on sales and streams after the first 48 hours, with Nathan Evans’ “Wellerman” just 500 chart sales behind in second place.
