Congrats to Lil Nas X!
Lil Nas X’s hit song “Old Town Road” has reached peak virality: it has landed at number-one on the Billboard Hot 100.
The Country rapper’s addicting song’s popularity is not only a product of the ear worm hook, it’s also been supplemented through countless cowboy-related memes, jumping to the forefront of conversation due to its removal from the Country charts, and getting an official endorsement from Billy Ray Cyrus on the song’s remix.
Prior to “Old Town Road” reaching ubiquity, Lil Nas X was living with his sister and music was just a dream. Fast forward, and the 20-year-old’s first official song now has over 82MM Spotify streams; Lil Nas X has inked a deal with Columbia Records.
