Lil Nas X has had another phenomenal year, for his career, as he’s dominated on the charts. In late March, his “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” single, debuted at number one, on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. He soon followed up that success, with hits such as “Sun Goes Down,” and “Industry Baby,” featuring Jack Harlow.
Nas X did run into some controversy on the way though, which includes attempting to sell his own Nike Air Max 97 “Satan Shoes.” That was met by a lawsuit from Nike, as it was filed against MSCHF, which helped Nas X create the sneakers.
Nas X Released Debut Album Last Month
In March, Nas X also announced that his long-awaited debut studio album would also arrive in the summer. The summer timeframe didn’t end up happening, but was finally released in September. That project went on to debut at number two, on the Billboard 200 chart. Nas X also had huge collaborations there, with stars such as Miley Cyrus, Doja Cat, Elton John, and Megan Thee Stallion. “That’s What I Like” has also become another huge hit record, from Montero.
Nas X Has High Praise For Doja Cat
Nas X and Doja collaborated on the song “Scoop,” on the Montero album. Nas X also recently took to Twitter, to give Doja her flowers, and how much she’s meant to him.
“Doja Cat has become my biggest inspiration. She puts so much effort into everything she does. And she’s hot.”
Doja hasn’t publicly responded to Nas X yet, but it definitely appears that the love is mutual. Scoop has since become a fan-favorite, on Montero

Doja Has Also Dominated In 2021
While Nas X has experienced massive wins this year, the same has also applied for Doja. In the spring, she released her “Kiss Me More” single, featuring SZA. That was a collaboration that fans had waited for for a while, and it exceeded expectations. It went on to peak at number three, on the Hot 100 chart, and is platinum, in the US. Last week, Kiss Me More became the first all-female collaboration in history, to spend six months in the Hot 100’s top 10. It also went on to appear on Doja’s third studio album, “Planet Her,” in June. That project debuted at number two, on the Billboard 200, and spent three consecutive weeks, at that position. Planet Her contained even more hits, such as “Ain’t S*it,” “You Right,” featuring The Weeknd, and “Need To Know.” This was Doja’s second album in two years, as her previous one was “Hot Pink,” in November 2019.
