When I first heard "Old Town Road" I knew it would be an instant hit. I was right. This song has been at the top of Billboard's Hot 100 charts for seven weeks now. Not only that, I have surfed radio stations and playlists and have heard this song on just about every type of station including urban, pop, soul, Hip Hop, rock and of course country. I've also heard it blast on repeat at the nail salon and in restaurants and at events where everybody immediately hits the dance floor as soon as it comes on.
Lil Nas X has a hit on his hands and this song will definitely catapult his career into another stratosphere because people everywhere are singing it and there is even a dance to accompany the song, which is part of the "Yeehaw Challenge." The rapper, singer and songwriter from Atlanta was very smart to hit the scene with this viral breakout single. The mixture of rap and country is not really new, but the way Lil Nas X spins it is pure genius.
