If Billboard is the ‘music bible’ then perhaps many fans are more interested and listen to the new country hip-hop version of two artists, Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus.
Time makes heroes
In Billboard’s history, only Despacito and One Sweet Day lasted 16 consecutive weeks. If One Sweet Day of “the whole pop music” Mariah Carey was born in 1995, the time of calculating the release of the radio, listening to the radio … Despacito (released in 2017) under the support of streaming, Youtube, Itunes, social network .. has spread at dizzying speed.
The fact is, when people easily access music through free or low-cost forms, when technology is the most powerful communication tool … it is clear that Despacito’s power is easier to cover. .
To achieve No.1 achievement on Billbỏard, how to calculate points including download amount; Online listening on Spotify with a number of music listening systems including YouTube; radio transmitter. Billboard now determines that the online listening fee is higher than the free list.
Back to Despacito and One Sweet Day, each song represents two very different extremes of European and American music history. One Sweet Day belongs to the RnB line, the time when Mariah Carey had almost no rivals. And Despacito is again the milestone for Latin Pop – an unexpected factor when EDM is in vogue but “dead premature”.
Few doubts, only two years after Despacito went anywhere, the phenomenon of Old Town Road dominated Billboad for 16 weeks and is an obsession for many new and old stars of the contemporary pop village in general.
Famous but also a lot of tricks
Old Town Road‘s owner is Lil Nas X – a completely unknown rapper. It was not until Lil Nas X “recruited” to invite Billy Ray Cyrus, a retired country singer, to sing a remix, that the Old Town Road was feverish, when the combination of hip-hop and country was sweet.
But perhaps, one of the reasons for Old Town Road gradually resonates is because of Miley Cyrus’s share – daughter Billy Ray Cyrus, on personal pages tens of millions of followers.
“Long-lasting rain,” country music is a “national” music, while hip-hop is a music that Americans listen to without being bored. The bottom line made the feverish Old Town Road despite it being the “offspring” that Billboard had removed from the country song chart because it was not enough.
Also, in order to preserve the No.1 position for Old Town Road, Lil Nas X made all the remixes for this song at all costs to increase the amount of streaming, he also did several MVs to keep the heat. for Old Town Road.
And yet, Lil Nas X is also judged by some netizens to be unfairly playing, breaking the law … to keep the No.1 for Old Town Road, blocking all of Taylor Swift’s newly released songs, Billie Eilish, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber!
Even when he realized the ability to shake No.1 by the super hot Senorita Latin song of the duo Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, Lil Nas X immediately declared his homosexuality, this information helped his song. Increasing huge streaming revenue.
With a dreadful situation of the music, the Old Town Road has 90% of the ability to surpass the Despacito and One Sweet Day records, becoming a sustainable long-term song. If this is done, Lil Nas X can be proud that only 20 years old (he was born in 1999), Lil will be one of the future of online music.
Just hoping that the big shadow of Old Town Road is the driving force for Lil Nas X to rise, it doesn’t turn into an on-hit-wonder (Magic once) like Magic’s Rude! Or Somebody That I Used To Know of Gotye and Kimbra.
