It looks like Lil Nas X is trying to make a habit out of breaking new musical ground.

The Atlanta rapper seems to have set his sights on conquering the rock genre after the success of his country viral sensation “Old Town Road.” He took to his Instagram on Saturday to tease a snippet of what appears to be a rock song.

“Y’all think they gone let me on the rock charts???!” Lil Nas X captioned the post. 

Lil Nas X, Montero Lamar Hill, is riding the wave of “Old Town Road,” which first went viral on the TikTok app, having just earned its second straight week as the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 after country legend Billy Ray Cyrus hopped on the track. 

The song hit a speed bump when Billboard took the song off the country music charts because it did not have enough “country elements” in it. In open defiance, Cyrus joined the song for the remix, and the song was back on the charts.
