Blake Shelton Denies Dissing Lil Nas X On New Song / Rapper Responds

Despite its ongoing success, Lil Nas X‘s debut single, ‘Old Town Road,’ has garnered its fair share of foes.

First enduring discrimination from Billboard regarding its genre classification, the song would later get hate from Taylor Swift fans (affectionately called #Swifties) for blocking every single released from her August 23rd due album, ‘Lover,’ from debuting at #1 on the Hot 100. Later, Mariah Carey fans (affectionately called #Lambs) made their disapproval of the cut well known after it broke her 23-year-old record for longest run at #1 in the tally’s history.

Ahead of the Hot 100’s refreshing on Monday (August 19) – which will reveal if the Trap star will clock a whopping 20 consecutive weeks at the chart’s summit – it appeared he’d gained a new enemy in the form of Country star Blake Shelton.

Details inside:

Shelton’s new song, ‘Hell Right,’ had people rightfully raising eyebrows after the Trace Adkins-assisted track featured the lyric:

“Then the girl from the small town took off the ‘Old Town,’ put on a little Hank Jr.,” with Adkins chiming in and saying, “Thank God.”

Yikes.  As the tune made its rounds the news got to the desk of Lil Nas X.  An infamous Twitter troll, the 20-year-old responded to the hoopla by saying:


Blake was quick to clear up any misunderstanding, however.  Taking to Variety (via representative), the 43-year-old stated:

“It’s absolutely not throwing any kind of shade at Lil Nas X at all,” a spokesperson for Shelton told Variety. “Blake says this literally has nothing to do with anything at all except how much the song is played. It could have been ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ or any other (overplayed) song.”
