Details on the Country’s star gains below…
The rising star is the envy of many Country chart hopefuls now that his breakout jam ‘Old Town Road‘ has eclipsed their releases thanks to his social media-powered crossover power and now finds himself becoming one to watch on a Pop and Hip-Hop front now that he has earned a record once held by Drake.

With more than 83m streams, it’s hardly surprising that Columbia‘s Lil Nas X tops both the overall Streaming Songs and Country Streaming Songs charts this week. “Old Town Road,” turbocharged with a remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, earns 13.5% marketshare on the Top 50 overall and a whopping 34% on the country chart.
