The african-american star stands tall as the highest-selling artist in the country this week and is poised to crush his competition under the weight of his popularity for the next few months if his current sales trajectory is anything to go by.
.@LilNasX‘s “Old Town Road” to remain at #1 on the Hot 100 with over 3x the points of #2.
It’s expected to be one of the most dominant #1’s of all time, joining tracks like “I Will Always Love You”, “The Boy Is Mine”, “Shape of You” and more.

This, after efforts made by a number of power players in the Country music scene to derail his winning streak.
We’re UNSTOPPABLE! No matter how much they try to sabotage us or knock us down God proves we’re the originators. We invented rhythm. We invented song. We invented instruments. Black culture is America. Black culture is the world. I’m beyond happy for @LilNasX! ??

Celebrating the good news with him are Nicki Minaj fans. Why? Nas’ role as a leading member of her fandom in another creative life.

Lil Nas X has always tweeted such positive things. Even when he was just a big Nicki fan page. I don’t understand the harassment. Is it because he’s actually doing something with his life?
Anyone can chase a bag on here if they stop strategizing ways to stop someone else’s bag.
