Mika's 'Lollipop' Sees Significant Sales & Streaming Gains After 'SNL' Bump

By Billboard

Following the success of his country-inspired viral hit "Old Town Road," Lil Nas X has set his sights on a new musical genre: rock.

On Saturday (April 20), the Atlanta rapper took to social media to tease a snippet of a new rock-influenced song. In the clip, Lil Nas X is seen lip-synching and dancing along to the guitar-filled track. Listen below.

"Y’all think they gone let me on the rock charts???!" Lil Nas X captioned the video.

Earlier this week, Lil Nas X logged a second week atop the Billboard Hot 100 with "Old Town Road," featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, who joined for a remix in early April.

The song's success, spurred on by a series of TikTok videos and other viral memes, resulted in a bidding war that culminated in the artist (real name: Montero Lamar Hill) signing to Columbia Records, and saw a co-sign from Justin Bieber.
