Lil Nas X's viral hit "Old Town Road" became something like a phenomenon. Spurred on by a little bit of Billboard controversy, a Cyrus family member once again dipping a toe in the hip-hop pool, and a delightful commitment to the cowboy motif, Lil Nas X's breakout single found itself enjoying a genuine moment in the sun. Now, the full extent of its success has been revealed, and the results are nothing short of impressive. In fact, "Old Town Road" has officially established itself a streaming juggernaut, breaking a record previously held by Drake.
Billboard has officially confirmed that Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" has surpassed the single-week totals of Drake's "In My Feelings" on Billboard's U.S. Streaming Songs charts. Of course, it should be noted that both the remix and the original count toward the numbers, which might leave some raised eyebrows; after all, both versions are technically different, are they not? Still, Lil Nas X's accomplishment should not be undersold. "Old Town Road" secured 143 million U.S. streams in a single week of release, while "In My Feelings" previously sat atop the mountain with 116.2 million during the height of the Shiggy-induced craze.
While some might feel the song is somewhat of a parody, there's clearly something here. Perhaps Lil Nas oughta explore the country slash meme rap direction further. The untapped market potential is boundless.
Drake Caught A Fan’s Bra One-Handed During "In My Feelings" Performance
The rapper did not skip a beat.
Rappers are used to having objects thrown at them throughout their stay performances, and Drake is so used to it by now that he simply catches them and retains the live performance shifting. A fan determined to shoot her shot on the rapper, hoping to seize his consideration by flinging her bra in his path. Drake was mid-verse, performing his chart-topping, City Girls-assisted, viral sensation jam "In My Feelings" when a crimson bra was hurled his method.
In the video clip that was uploaded to Instagram, the hand holding the bra was near the body pre-launch. As a viewer, you possibly can virtually anticipate the second when the particular person wished to toss it, and with out skipping a beat, Drake caught it one-handed. For a fast second he stared at it, not understanding precisely what it was, however when the screams got here from the particular person (and mates) accountable, he started to swing it round and he continued to carry out.
