Lil Nas X released the song "Old Town Road" along with a music video on YouTube in December 2018 and collected over 1 million views soon thereafter. The song eventually gained popularity on TikTok.[+] The music video includes a theme from the game Red Dead Redemption.
"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."
