Amid all the chart topping, drama stirring, and severe stanning, the March 26 track “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” by Lil Nas X is slowly becoming less available for online streaming, and no one exactly knows why.

“It’s happening on all the streaming services,” he writes in a recent tweet, adding: “Everybody stream ‘Call Me By Your Name’ hard today because it may no longer be available tomorrow and there’s nothing I can really do about it.”

At first sounding like a highly believable internet meme, there is a significant number of comments with fans posting proof that they can’t listen online, including screenshots of a message saying that the track is no longer available. “I was about to laugh at you guys for not being able to listen but I can’t anymore either!!” writes one Twitter user. “I literally just listened to it on the way home last night like 20 times.”

Currently, there’s no public explanation for the song’s disappearance, but Lil Nas X does have some solutions for those missing out. For starters, he suggests that everybody screen records the audio and video on YouTube: “So you will have the song in your gallery worst case scenario.”

On the other hand, fans may soon be able to pop over to Pornhub to stream the track. In another tweet, he adds: “Since ‘Call Me By Your Name’ is no longer working on many streaming services I will be uploading the audio to Pornhub at 3pm EST.”

The “pole dance to hell” music video and song, although fitting by theme and atmosphere in the new environment, wouldn’t be the first time the porn site provided home for censored and banned content. For example, banned UK drill videos, alongside a leaked Margiela documentary and an official release of Leila Weinraub’s Shakedown all resurfaced on Pornhub after having been deleted from their original platforms. “We aim to please,” reads a reply from the official Pornhub Twitter account. “Honored to help you stream.”
