Lil Nas’ ‘Old Town Road’ Tops Billboard Hot 100

Published: Tuesday 9th Apr 2019 by David

Lil Nas is the highest-selling musician artist in the country this week.

Good news below…

The innovative star rose to fame a prominent member of Nicki Minaj’s fan base and turned his valuable social media water into music industry wine by using his popularity to launch a singing career.

The sum of his strategy? ‘Old Town Road.

It now reigns supreme at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

While Lil Nas X is the first artist to take an initial Hot 100 entry to No. 1 since Bradley Cooper just five weeks earlier, thanks to Cooper’s duet “Shallow” with Lady Gaga, Lil Nas X is the first artist unaccompanied by another act to top the Hot 100 on a first try since Cardi B, whose “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” spent three weeks at No. 1 in October 2017.

    I love this song. But the fact that they took this song off the Country charts……bruh. We gotta do somethin about this race sh*t when it comes to music. But in general

      Chileee, that’s the real story. Whenever white people do their bad impressions of black music and make basic trap records, billboard has no problem putting them in the urban and rhythmic categories. But when black people, who have contributed more to American Music than ANY other group (including country and rock & roll), tries to move across genres, they won’t allow it. ??? You can make pop music, country music, rock music, alternative, it doesn’t matter. They ALWAYS restrict black people to the same 2 genres but will let the white artists move how they please.

        The real gag was the song debuted on the Country chart and peaked at #9. The following week it was slated to reach #1 but it got pulled from the chart right before it could. Trash af
