Lil Nas X + Billy Ray Cyrus Tap Mason Ramsey, Young Thug for New ‘Old Town Road’ Remix [LISTEN]
Another country singer-rapper pair have joined Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus on a new remix of their hit song "Old Town Road." Press play above to hear the new version of the track, featuring country singer Mason Ramsey and hip-hop artist Young Thug.
For this newly remixed version of "Old Town Road," Young Thug adds a new verse in between Lil Nas X's original verse and Cyrus' verse. "Walmart Yodeler" Ramsey, meanwhile, chimes in after Cyrus' verse with a verse of his own, which features the instantly iconic line "If you ain't got no giddy-up, then giddy-out my way."
Lil Nas X and Cyrus' "Old Town Road" is spending its 14th consecutive week at the top of the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart for the week dated July 13, and has been certified diamond, for sales of more than 10 million units. Despite the fact that it was eliminated from the Hot Country Songs chart after its debut back in March, "Old Town Road" has been everywhere this summer: Lil Nas X and Cyrus have performed the song at CMA Fest with Keith Urban, at Stagecoach with Diplo and together at the 2019 BET Awards. Everyone from Old Crow Medicine Show to Josh Abbott has covered it.
Lil Nas X released his debut EP, 7, on June 21; in addition to Cyrus on "Old Town Road," rapper Cardi B makes a guest appearance on the project. The rising rapper has also recently made headlines when he announced at the end of June (which is Pride Month) that he is gay.
“It’s something I was considering never doing, ever. Taking to the grave," Lil Nas X tells the BBC. "But I don’t wanna live my entire life — especially how I got to where I’m at — not doing what I wanna do.”
