Montero Hill, AKA, Lil Nas X, has hit the headlines recently for releasing the world's first ever "country rap".

Billboard didn't announce the takedown of the track, but went on to release a statement to Rolling Stone stating, "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".

The new remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus also had an impressive day.

Old Town Road now sits at number 15 on the cross-genre Billboard Top 100 chart, and had been viewed more than 23 million times on YouTube. Country music fans decide what they like. The Lil Nas X trap-country cross-over hit united the internet after Billboard pulled the track from its Hot Country Songs chart. Not only did he have feedback for anyone disagreeing that the song is country, but he also made his way into the studio to put his spin on the song himself. "It was so obvious to me after hearing the song just one time, he wrote on Twitter".

A deadly drug resistant fungus threatens the world
As of February 28, there were 587 confirmed cases across the country, a lot of them in New York State, where there were 309 cases. This fungus C Auris has also reached other parts of the world like New York, New Jersey and IL , and other regions of Asia.

"I think "Old Town Road" is the diversity we're looking for in our program", Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said.

The song in its original form was deemed ineligible for the country chart, even though it first popped up that same genre's heat seekers chart. "What the hell more do ya need?"

The song sparked a debate about what is classified as country, and now country star Billy Ray Cyrus has thrown his cowboy hat in the ring - along with a remix. The song is now at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 after being removed from their Hot Country Songs chart late last month.

Billboard offers category-specific charts simply as a tool for people in the music business to better gauge the success of songs relative to others in a given format. So far, Billboard hasn't said anything about the new arrangement.
