"Old Town Road" has been number one for 13 straight weeks, the most ever for a Hip Hop or a country track. If that wasn't proof enough that Lil Nas X is the hottest artist in the game right now, the seven song EP he just dropped finished a close second on the Billboard album chart in its first week.
To celebrate Pride Day yesterday, Nas X came out as gay.
Here's how Twitter is reacting:

I love that @LilNasX fits literally zero of societies boxes.— Brittany Packnett (@MsPackyetti) July 1, 2019
Such a window into gen z and I appreciate how free they are.
Keep being you, homie. 🌈
Just because Lil Nas X is out doesn’t mean you get to twist “Old Town Road” to mean something completely different. Your kids love him AND that song, and they don’t give a fuck about his sexuality. Don’t switch shit up now.— Nelly Thee Great (@WhiteGirlNell) July 1, 2019
