Lil Nas X sent fans into a frenzy with his latest tweet.
On April Fools’ Day Friday, the rapper announced the release of the deluxe edition of his debut album Montero tonight with superstar guests including Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Tyler, The Creator, NBA YoungBoy and Saucy Santana.
“Montero DELUXE’s (featuring Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Creator Tyler, NBA Youngboy, Saucy Santana and more!) YOU’LL BE YOURSELF TONIGHT AT 7P EST!” he tweeted.

Fans were excited until they realized that today was April Fools’ Day and that Nas could be one of his elaborate trolls.
“I was completely confused until I saw the date,” tweeted one fan, while another added, “When I saw the name Rihanna, I knew it was a hat.”
Lil Nas X fans still think he’s a trolling
While fans remain skeptical, the NBA YoungBoy and Saucy Santana collaborations may be real. Last month, Nas mocked YoungBoy for “Late to the Party” and “Down Souf Hoes” featuring Santana.
Montero was released in September in collaboration with Doja Cat, Elton John, Megan Thee Stallion and Miley Cyrus.
On Sunday, Nas celebrated his 64th birthday in Las Vegas with Jack Harlow.
Lil Nas X Returns To Social Media
On Wednesday, the “Industry Baby” rapper debuted after months of social media seising to return with a song with NBA YoungBoy.
He posted a screenshot of an audio file labeled “Late to the Party” and shared another song called “Down Souf Hoes” with Saucy Santana along with YoungBoy.
“Which one do you want first?” he asked his fans.
He also retweeted a fan who called the YoungBoy collaboration a “God tier move” in the wake of the “YoungBoy better” meme.
