Lil Nas X Compares Old Town Road With Beyoncé’s Cowboy Carter

“i believe he’s speaking about being removed from the country genre. his country song was removed from Billboard country charts for not being ‘country enough,’” one person tweeted.

“He’s not wrong. Country radio refused to play Old Town Road, and they wouldn’t allow it to be placed on the country charts,” someone else wrote. “The same thing they did to Beyoncé with Daddy Lessons they did to Lil Nas X. Again showing why Cowboy Carter is so important.”

“Old Town Road WAS successful. However, what Lil Nas X is referencing is how he was meant to chart to number 19 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart before the magazine disqualified it from the chart on the grounds that he & OTR wasn’t country. They wouldn’t specify beyond that… Old Town Road was never allowed to qualify for any country awards either, including country song of the year,” another user wrote.

“He’s allowed to share his disappointment it took this long, especially when one of the biggest hits that happened to be his, was left out,” they added.
