So, let me start off this post by saying that I’m actually a bigger fan of Billie Eilish than Lil Nas X. However, I also take great pride in being objective, son. With that being said, I have NO idea how Eilish beat X at this past Sunday‘s Grammy Awards. The way the see it, there’s no way in hell that “Bad Guy” should’ve beaten “Old Town Road” for Record of the Year.
Ok, if I’m being transparent, my previous assertion isn’t based on which song I like more. If that were the case, then I would’ve picked “Bad Guy.” However, “Old Town Road” was fucking ubiquitous last year. I mean, it was EVERYWHERE, man! Like, I literally couldn’t go down the street without hearing that cotdamn song, fam. For God‘s sake, my youngest son was still singing that shit yesterday, bruh. So, as big (and great) as “Bad Guy” was/is, there’s no way that it should’ve bested X’s song, son.
To be clear, “Old Town Road” is one of the biggest songs ever. Like, EVER, man! Fam, we’re talking about a diamond-selling joint that broke damn near every Billboard record in existence. Now, I know that sales don’t factor into this (*wink wink*), but the song became a behemoth because it touched so many different age groups. Listen, if “Bad Guy” simply won Song of the Year, then I wouldn’t have a problem at all. Like I said before, I truly believe that “Bad Guy” is the better-crafted song. But, we have to factor in a track’s impact, bruh. From that point of view, “Bad Guy” isn’t even in the same stratosphere as “Old Town Road.” So, the Committee should’ve just given X his moment, son.
In the end, none of this matters in the slightest, man. Ultimately, both of these young people won, fam. By and by, I have nothing negative to say about Billie Eilish or Lil Nas X. Hopefully, they both continue to do their thing, bruh. Anyway, despite the subject on this entire post, I’m about to go play some “Bad Guy,” son. It just is what it is, brethren. That is all. LC out.
