Montero Hill. You know him better as Lil Nas X.
His track “Old Town Road” has spent the most weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 (19 Weeks). Cock-blocking Billie Eilish from reaching the top spot and destroying “Despacito”’s reign. It’s gone platinum in: Sweden, Portugal, Italy, Austria, Belgium, New Zealand, Germany, Poland, America, The UK and Australia 8 times!
It surpassed Drake’s weekly streaming record (143 million vs 116.2 million for “In My Feelings”) He won Song of The Year at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, performed at the BET Awards, Glastonbury and posed on the cover of TIME Magazine.
Lil Nas X has only been making music for just over a year. All of this is what a dedicated kid can do with an insanely catchy hook, a knack for making memes and a little luck. But there’s plenty an artist can learn from “Old Town Road”'s success.
This is how Lil Nas X created the most popular song ever.

@Envy Adams i like my music all kinds from edm to classic rock to rap i can apreciate good music when i hear it and this is garbage pure comercial garbage if u like the simple tune listen to merkules rendition of this song has least ten trillion times better rap on it.
I think you said it right in the end. The song is far from a "game changer", it's just a fun, catchy tune. Not every track should be a masterpiece for it to be considered good. We can always use some good old fashioned fun, as you said.
Oh Christ, mumble fuck boy rap.. Gtfo with that.
Most populer song eh? Ive never heard of it, you do no about one hit wonders right? That's usually pop music with no talent (just like this) with just one song that's annoying.
@of mice and men Nice, you know it, so there is someone. But be honest, if a song isn't on the radar of any group of listeners... then it's like it doesn't exist for these people. Well, that is what is going on in my country
@of mice and men Maybe you don't truly understand, Argentina is not a very populous nation. I'm not saying literally nobody knows the song, but if it isn't on the radio, nor is classic nor is on the minds of the musical elite... then nobody knows it.
I’m not a huge fan of his music
But I absolutely admire him
And his voice is great
And I think his music is way better than all the other people that you mentioned
I can’t wait to see where this kid will go
4:34 If you don't actually have any investment in country music/culture and just use it as cheap window dressing in order to push your novelty song, then, yeah, maybe you don't belong on the country charts.
its not the most popular song ever, it just charted the longest because of wide demographic , if niggas still are listening to it in 30 years consistently , which they aren't even doing NOW, then u can say that, til then, dont disrespect Michael Jackson like that
In regards to the hypocrisy of Nashville, they allow handclaps and electronic influences and call it country and play it on country radio, but Old Town Road, is more country than what is on country radio today, yet they don't call it country.
If anything this has just exposed yet another flaw in the way popularity is measured in a music industry that is still trying to adapt to the internet. Vulfpeck also exposed a flaw in the way artists get revenue by "making" an album consisting solely of silence and encouraging fans to listen to it on repeat to fund a free-of-charge concert run. Perhaps they need to rework the whole thing with the remixes. If The Godfather was remade every year with slight variations it still wouldn't count as the same movie, would it? Or how about the countless variations of the Robin Hood movies or people who've remade famous paintings in their own style... You get what I mean. It's a flaw in the system for sure.
@rockon specifically 2014? Idk. I listen to Electric Worry by Clutch fairly frequently, Yeah! by Usher, lot of 90s/00s songs, theme songs and memes too. Maybe since I'm a nerd, or something, but yeah, I do.
Stop making Old Town Road some act of civil rights. It wasn't included in the country charts because country is trying to remove the rap and pop influences in it. Rap and pop fans might like the mix but country fans don't!!! They don't!!! They want more Chris Stapleton, not this and not Florida Georgia Line, etc
