Hip Hop Meets Country Atop the Billboard Hot 100

A relatively obscure hip hop artist has taken an improbable route to the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Lil Nas X recorded a country hip hop song called “Old Town Road” that went viral on social media before cracking the Billboard country music charts, but was subsequently removed by Billboard after being deemed “not country enough”. Enter Billy Ray Cyrus of “Achy Breaky Heart” fame, whom Lil Nas X recruited for the remix to add country bona fides. The rest, as they say, is history.
