After a year of up's and lows it seems that Lil Nas X, the 22-year-old Industry Baby singer, will be ending the year on a high note, after the 2022 Grammy nominee list dropped and it was revealed the Montero (Call Me By Your Name) singer has not only nabbed himself one nomination but five! for his latest album.

Montero and his highly catchy single Montero (Call Me By Your Name) scored nods in three of the “Big Four” categories: Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year. The accompanying video for Montero (Call Me By Your Name also earned a nomination for Best Music Video. And the artist’s hit Industry Baby, featuring Jack Harlow, racked up a nom for Best Melodic Rap Performance.
