Montero Lamar Hill (born April 9, 1999), better known as Lil Nas X, is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia. He is best known for his country rap breakout single "Old Town Road", which achieved viral popularity as part of the "Yeehaw Challenge" on the video sharing app TikTok. "Old Town Road" peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and was controversially removed from the Hot Country Songs after debuting at number 19.
Country music star Billy Ray Cyrus has since supported Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" in a tweet, and he is a featured vocalist in a remix of the song released in early April 2019.
On April 16, 2019, it was announced that Lil Nas X had broken Drake's record for the most US streams in one week. "Old Town Road" achieved 143 million streams for the week ending April 11, surpassing Drake's "In My Feelings", which achieved 116.2 million streams in one week in July 2018.
