Lil Nas X’s surprise hit “Old Town Road” has inspired strong co-signs from titans in the music industry, spawning a remix with Billy Ray Cyrus. As the yee haw agenda continues, the artist’s song has also gotten some love from the Jersey Club scene.
Released last week, the song remixed by DJ Smallz 732 and Kyle Edwards brings you to the dance floor faster than a square dance compettion. Smallz has put his magic touch on several popular jams in the past like fun.’s “We Are Young,” and Nicki Minaj’s “Pills and Potions.”
With several versions of “Old Town Road” causing a party bigger than Reba McEntire at the Grand Ole Oprye, Lil Nas X is a happy cowboy since his chart fiasco with Billboard. Just last week, the rapper’s song was quietly removed from the country charts after it reportedly “[did] not embrace enough elements of today’s country music to chart in its current version.” The track caught traction on radio and streaming sites after it was used extensively on the music syncing app, Tik Tok.
Lil Nas shared his thoughts on the incident, telling Time “Old Town Road” is a song that deserves praise on both country and rap charts.
“I believe whenever you’re trying something new, it’s always going to get some kind of bad reception,” he said. “For example, when rap started, or when rock and roll began. But with country trap, I in no way want to take credit for that. I believe Young Thug would be one of the biggest pioneers in that.”
The party has continued on social media, with many enjoying all versions of “Old Town Road.”
