Lil Nas X Earns His First Billboard Hot 100 Hit With “Old Town Road.”
After Billboard’s decided to remove Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” from the country charts. The rapper has received a large amount of support from the hip-hop community. Although the move by Billboard was wrong, it may have in fact helped Lil Nas X more than it hurt him. All the attention surrounding the song earned Lil Nas X his first number one single on the Billboard Hot 100.
Lil Nas X now joins Cardi B by having his song climb its way to the top of the charts. The song sat at number 15 and then got a serious boost which brought it to #1. It’s also worth mentioning, the song hit Number one before the song’s remix with Billy Ray Cyrus came out. The strength of the remix should help Lil Nas X hold a position on the top stop up until next week.
Lil Nas X is now completely in the spotlight. The success of “Old Town Road” and the remix featuring country star Billy Ray Cyrus, in addition to major label backing, Lil Nas X might just become a new superstar in the rap game.
