    I do not understand the popularity of this song at all, I feel so out of touch. It doesn't really have any notable qualities to me. As for the genre, it's a massive stretch to consider this a country song, it doesn't sound at all like a country song. The only thing that is country-esque is the lyrics and lyrics do not define the genre in most circumstances.

    Also, if he's a former twitter stan barb, does that mean a black gay man is #1 worldwide? Or am I making assumptions?

      I just regard it as a novelty song. It just happens to be by a black rapper from America rather than the usual suspects across europe. I still think what Lil Nas X achieved with this song is really clever.

      Ohh i didn't realise he is gay. Is that actually true? Even more kudos to him if so.

      I do agree with your point that this is an urban track that just happens to be influenced by country music. Although since Billy Ray Cyrus got on board (another genius move considering the farce with Billboard) perhaps this confirms its status as a country song.

        Regarding that argument, 'This Is What You Came For' surely is an R&B song and 'Girls Like You' hip hop, right ;) ? As much as genres are fluid, it would be a disgrace to proper and talented country musicians working in favor of their genre's reputation to even relate this song to country music. I could live with the branding 'trap/hip hop with stereotypically country music lyrics' ;) .

              So this is still a thing? Impressive considering I thought that it was the kind of novelty hit that vanishes after a week or two, 'Harlem Shake' style. Is it the same people listening to it again and again or are there people only starting to pick it up now?

                I think it has legs. My sisters and cousins cant stop singing it.

                It is catchy tbh.

                  It's short and catchy, perfect for streaming. If Taylor and Ed & Justin couldn't dethrone this, i don't think anyone could in near future.

                          This is the song that could break the record. It's still growing in airplay, doing fantastic on streaming and the video is yet to be released. He also blocked Post Malone, Taylor, Shawn, Ed & Justin from hitting #1. I can see this topping the chart at least 10 more weeks unless Adele releases something.

                            To be honest, the acts you mentioned are already the biggest acts you can have in terms of chart impact in the US at the moment. So if they are unable to outsell 'Old Town Road', I'm not sure whether Adele could - as big as her last two eras have been. The song's domination of all relevant formats in the US is striking; what I have yet to find out is what makes this song so incredibly popular even outside of the Anglophone world - especially considering its unusually short length.

                                        I want this Nicki Minaj stan to break the record of OSD and Despacito.

                                              Oh my goodness, this just destroyed potential #1 debuts from Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes, as well as a combined force of Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber.

                                                    Tomorrow, this will hit #1 on the urban radio chart and that means black music will officially be completely dead and buried. I at least can take solace in that it’s the solo version getting 99% of the spins.

                                                      I just hope they don't bury and crucify him the way they always do to artists who cannot match the intensity and hit factor of this song. I mean, if someone like Nicki Minaj who dominated for seven years got erased from relevance after being dominated by a new female rapper who was barely out for a year, I hope good things are in store for Lil Nas X regardless of which genre audience is playing his songs. He seems really nice.
