Atlanta artist Lil Nas X's hit song, "Old Town Road" has been removed from Billboard's Country Music charts after the track broke into Billboard’s Hot 100, Hot Country Songs, and Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs charts.
"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," Billboard told Rolling Stone.
Despite Billboards decision, the track is listed as “country” on several streaming platforms including SoundCloud and iTunes.
Twitter thinks the decision has more to do with Lil Nas X's race than anything else.
Is the song country or nah?
