Just now watching. Would like to comment on the Lil Nas X's song. It may have country music elements, but the beginning has a very vintage blues tone. Like back during it's first generation era. I absolutely love vintage blues. Always the metal head, but a music lover, I do like country. I don't understand why it wasn't accepted. Mainly because, what, in my opinion is a terrible incarnation, is the rap country. This is better than any of the rap country. Let me rephrase that. Way better! I don't like the rap country, because everyone that I've heard just sounds like a parody. It doesn't sound genuine. It sounds like a mockery. I have been to several musician workshops, and have met quite a few people who are a little bias. As in, if it ain't country then it's not good. Many consider high octaves as hollering. Country music maintains a more close level in vocal range, and a has a standardized basic rhythm. As you said it all sounds alike. It's very odd that it wasn't accepted. It sounds kind of bias, and hypocritical. Very strange indeed.

Paper Planes was also really controversial because of the implied gun violence in the song.

2:43 YES! Yes it is! I believe Lil Nas X also made his sexuality public, but that TOTALLY didn't have anything to do with his sudden "accidental" inclusion on Country charts with a country-enough song and a Country music superstar!

I think the lyrics and rhythm of old Town road are country, the melody (which dominates the song) is very much hip hop. To me it sounds like a hip hop song influenced by country, not a country song influenced by hip hop

It seems to me that Lil Nas X brought the biggest elephant in the room to the forefront for country: the industry is NOT inclusive. The removal of a BIPOC artist’s clearly country song from the Billboard country charts just underscores that for me because Joel is right, there’s no logical reason for it to be excluded.

The two most played styles of songs of southern Mississippi is rap and country. This is why that Old Town Road is implanted in my head because I was the last one off the bus, and the person who was second to last was a high schooler with a speaker. They played it over and over again.

Didn't Red Dead Redemption 2 kinda helped Old Town Road somehow? I mean, the game was hella big (and still is today) when it got released. Everybody was just feeling the cowboy vibes, and of course Old Town Road's timing was great.

How is "This is America" unlikely hit? Racial injustice as a main theme, beat that SLAPS HARD, awesome overall vibe, that gospel part, impeccable flow and it all came from already acclaimed musician. Add Donald's charisma on top of that and the video... I mean, what else do you need for a true banger?! And I agree with other comments, if anything PSY should've been here. It was a worldwide sensation and no one in the universe, including PSY thought it would be.
