"It definitely did matter but It did not overwhelm me to the point where the billboard situation was bigger than the song. "He said to Teen Vogue I feel a little better in some ways.
It should come as no surprise that Urban supported the rapper and covered the song. The Australian-New Zealand singer has faced his own challenges with genre definitions came to his own music. He is now Entertainer of the Year, but there were a few cliffs that seemed to be climbing.
"The listener will always decide which genre it fits in," Urban said in an interview with Rolling Stone Country regarding his album Graffiti . "I've always done m It did not necessarily feel like a country that someone in Nashville could say, 'Oh, that's not exactly a country,' but everyone else would say, 'This is totally a country.'

"It all depends on where you are, what you are engrossed in, and how you define genres as listeners," Urban added. "My goal has always been to capture my musical heart wherever it is, and it's on the move, so I'm musically here."
