Lil Nas X “Old Town Road” shot straight up to number 1 the Billboard hot 100. It’s being a long time coming since any debut got this much attention and critically acclaimed status in the music scene. With the creative energy and visionary creative idea with which Lil Nas X fused trap music and country music together to what is popularly referred to in some quarters as “TrapCountry”.
Last week, Billy Ray Cyrus jumped on a remix of “Old Town Road,” showinghis support to Lil Nas X in the aftermath of falling from the country chart.
The song success came in the heels of it being removed from Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart because it did not “embrace enough elements of today’s country music.” Billboard also shared a statement claiming the decision had “absolutely nothing to do with the race of the artist.”
But as it all stands now, Lil Nas X can comfortably enjoy the success of his creative works so far and going forward.
