Say what you want, but pop music can be pretty unpredictable. There's no better proof of that than Lil Nas X, perhaps the most unlikely pop star of the decade. The young rapper was still a teen when he released 'Old Town Road,' a country-rap crossover that has made headlines and climbed charts around the world.

The quirky song spent 19 weeks at number one, being bested now by Billie Eilish's 'Bad Guy.'
