His “Old Town Road” Hit Tops The Hot 100 Chart
The boot-sliding, knee-slapping tune that’s bumping in parlors and low-riders everywhere has finally taken over the charts.
According to Billboard, Lil Nas X‘s “Old Town Road” hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart, giddying on up from its previous No. 15 spot.
The viral hit’s success comes just in time for Lil Nas’ 20th birthday, which is August 9. The young gunner joins people like Cardi B for having his initial Hot 100 entry top the charts with no featured guests. Cardi once did this with her smash “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” in October 2017.
“Road” also hit the No. 1 spot on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and the Hot Rap Songs chart, jumping from No. 7 on each list.
There’s nowhere to go but up for the country trap treasure since the “Old Town Road” remix was released last week and is also expected to do numbers. Both the remix and original version will count towards the song’s singular placement on the charts.
So fasten your saddles and giddy up pardners! The yeehaw agenda is just getting started!
Hopefully, the backwards Billboard will take notice and change accordingly.
