Lil Nas X's 'Old Town Road' hits No. 1

YouTube

And while I think Cyrus added a lot to the track - his gravelly vocals on both the intro chorus and his verse just sound so good - I truly think this was a country song before Cyrus touched it.

Rapper Young Thug has revealed a brand new remix of Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" during an Instagram Live.

Lil Nas X's hit began spreading as a meme on TikTok - a video sharing app that has found an explosive audience among American youth - with people posting videos with hashtags like #yeehaw set to the song.

"Old Town Road" dethrones Ariana Grande's "7 rings", which falls to #3 this week.

Many expect Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" to claim #1 on next week's Billboard Hot 100, which will account for the new Billy Ray Cyrus remix in addition to the original version.

The "Old Town Road" rapper jokingly tweeted he would want the country legend Billy Ray Cyrus on the remix of the song.

Afterward, people on the internet rallied for Lil Nas X, saying it was wrong for him to be taken off because of its differences compared to numerous songs in the country genre.

Cyrus also posted words of encouragement for the budding artist following the removal of the song from the charts.

"Old Town Road", which has been dubbed "cowboy trap", is now the in the states. Be sure to take a few listens, take the horses out the back and take a ride down the Old Town Road. Either Billboard is afraid of musical experimentation that doesn't fit into easy categorization, or they're afraid of artists that don't fit - Lil Nas X, a young black man, looks pretty different from every other artist topping the country charts right now.
