On March 11, 2019, it was announced that Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” debuted at #83 on the Billboard Hot 100 ; it was the first time Lil Nas X appeared on the Billboard charts.
On March 27th, 2019, Billboard decided to remove “Old Town Road” from the country charts. The institution known as Billboard said the following to Rolling Stone Magazine:
“Upon further review, it was determined that “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X does not currently merit inclusion on Billboard‘s country charts. When determining genres, a few factors are examined, but first and foremost is musical composition. While “Old Town Road” incorporates references to country and cowboy imagery, it does not embrace enough elements of today’s country music to chart in its current version.”
Another Billboard spokesperson told Genius the following: “Billboard’s decision to take the song off of the country chart had absolutely nothing to do with the race of the artist.”
