From viral TikTok sensation to music number one smash hit,”Old Town Road” has taken the top spot in music’s cultural firmament relying upon an incredible Nine Inch Nails sample, some old-fashioned controversy (it was barred from state music charts) and a remix using Billy Ray Cyrus.
So it’s only natural that the tune that was created almost and rose to No. 1 through online ubiquity would work its way backward during the standard music industry playbook to finally, after weeks atop the Billboard charts, get its video therapy.
And that which a movie treatment it’s. This video has everything. Horse chases, gunfights, car races, time traveling and bingo.
Joining Lil Nas X is a cornucopia of faces in film and music, such as Billy Ray Cyrus (obviously ), Chris Rock, Diplo, Vince Staples and also Rico Nasty.
It has been a very long week, so take a break up with a trip on the”Old Town Road.” It’s fun.
