Lil Nas X enlists Mason Ramsey and Young Thug for latest ‘Old Town Road’ remix, looks to secure longest-running #1 single of all time
The cross-over hit “Old Town Road” has been breaking records left and right and now. As it celebrates its 14th week as the #1 song in the country, Lil Nas X has unveiled a brand new remix of his viral single. Billy Ray Cyrus returns on the latest edition of “Old Town Road” which sees newly-added features from Mason Ramsey and Young Thug. The release may be the final push that “Old Town Road” needs in order to make pop-chart history; “Old Town Road” only needs to hold its #1 position for two more weeks before it ties both Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day” and Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber’s “Despacito” as the most successful single of all time.
The latest “Old Town Road” remix welcomes Mason Ramsey —the yodeling kid who has seen his own streak with virality—as well as fellow Atlanta rapper Young Thug. The uncanny pair make perfect sense as recruits for Lil Nas X’s hit song —with Ramsey using his virality to catapult a country career by signing a label deal and even performing at Coachella, and Young Thug pushing boundaries with fashion as a vehicle.
Lil Nas X released his debut EP 7 at the end of June. The second track “Panini” has already enjoyed popularity.
