The hits just keep on comin’ for Atlanta rapper Lil Nas X.
His breakout hit “Old Town Road” is No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the 13th week in a row and tops the R&B/Hip-Hop chart.
But two more songs appeared on the charts this week.
“Panini” debuted at No. 16 on the Top 100 and No. 9 on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts. The song also led to a cooking lesson for the rapper.
While he was in London, Lil Nas X tweeted to celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay: “teach me how to make paninis while I’m still in london.”
To which Ramsay replied, “Name the day ...”
Just two days later, the Lithia Springs High School graduate posted photos of himself and Ramsay in the kitchen with the paninis they made.
But Lil Nas X’s horses don’t just go to the “Old Town Road.” They also go to the “Rodeo.”
“Rodeo,” with Atlanta rapper Cardi B, debuted at No. 22 on the Top 100 chart and No. 12 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart.
“Old Town Road” quickly climbed the Billboard charts in April and gained national attention when Billboard removed it from the Hot Country Songs chart, declaring it not country enough.
A Minnesota mother even credits the song with inspiring her then-nonverbal autistic son to sing.
All three songs are on Lil Nas X’s debut EP, “7.”
