The King of Country: Lil Nas Earns First UK #1 Single

Published: Sunday 21st Apr 2019 by David

Country musicians from near and far have looked on as the African-American superstar Lil Nas dominates the genre with his feel-good jam ‘Old Town Road’ in the United States.

This week, he has done the same in the United Kingdom.

Full report below…

‘Road’ is the highest-selling single in the United Kingdom on this week’s Official Singles Chart thanks to support he garnered from fans in the market and so, as a result, stands tall at #1.


I cannot believe how amazing my song is doing on the UK charts. I’m so thankful to everyone who has got behind Old Town Road. I’m still blown away by all the support for the track – thank you for listening!


Quite interestingly, he dominates the chart exactly seven years to the month Nicki Minaj did the same with her sophomore album ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’…an album Nas supported on social media during his time as a prominent member of the rapper’s fan base.

A full-length set from the rising star is on the way this year.

    He said that he was not the creator of that fan page for Nicki Minaj. People took his name and ran with that. Get it together TGJ.

      Nah the evidence clearly proves it was him. He is denying it now because it’s embarrassing to be a Barbie these days.

    I didn’t know black people sing country

    I also didn’t know Europeans listen to country

    I also don’t understand how rap song on a country beat equates to country music

    I guess I’m confused

    • Ty April 21, 2019

      Black people were instrumental in the creation of country music. Uk musical taste has nothing to do with Europe. The components of what make a country song are there doesn’t matter wether he is singing or rapping. Nothing to be confused about you just lack knowledge.
