One of the reasons for “Old Town Road “‘s success is Lil Nas X’s audience. The rapper explained the reasoning behind his song in an interview with Rolling Stone.

“I knew how to drive the song to make it hit more people’s ears,” said Lil Nas X. “I run a meme type account on Twitter; I know what my audience is looking for. I put some potentially fun lines in there. “

And hit people’s ears it did. The remix “Old Town Road” has over 200 million games on Spotify and is in the middle of countless TikTok videos and Instagram captions.

On March 27, 2019, Billboard removed “Old Town Road” from his Hot Country Songs chart. The reason for drawing this song Billboard was strongly argued, was not racially motivated.

“In determining genres, some factors are examined, but primarily musical composition” representatives from Billboard told Rolling Stone . “While” Old Town Road “contains references to country and cowboy images, it does not include enough parts of today’s country music to map in its current version.”
