Following the release of his debut studio album, Montero, Lil Nas X took to Twitter to interact with his fans and answer some lingering questions surrounding the album.
Among the questions, X was asked which song he sent to Nicki Minaj that he asked her to get on for the album. In a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, the rapper revealed he sent a track to Nicki, but she didn’t get back to him. He now reveals that the aforementioned song was “Industry Baby” featuring Jack Harlow.
When asked why no black male rappers are on the album, Lil Nas X also revealed that Ski Mask the Slump God was almost on “Scoop,” but he couldn’t finish his verse by the time the album needed to be turned in. The track features Doja Cat.
Later on in the day, he also revealed that the reason he hasn’t popped up on more features for other artists is that he wants the moment to feel special when he does.
First week projections for Montero via Hits Daily Double have the project moving 130,000 to 140,000 in album equivalent units, with 17,000-20,000 being pure album sales. It’s currently in contention with Drake’s Certified Lover Boy, which is still sitting atop the charts entering its third week.
