It will be no surprise next week when Lil Nas X finally breaks the record for the longest-running No. 1 one the Billboard Hot 100 in history. “Old Town Road” has been inescapable for months, and thanks to remixes featuring guest spots from Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug, Mason Ramsey, and RM from the K-Pop supergroup BTS, nothing is gonna stop this horse from riding.
There’s also a new remix in town. The Lil Wayne feature on the hit song has been leaked onto the Internet.
“Ooh, she got that honky-tonk, I met her on ‘Farmers Only,'” Tunechi spits. “She ride me, say ‘yeehaw Mayne,’ call me ‘Lil John Wayne.'”
“They sent it to me and I did it as an official remix,” Weezy said last week of appearing on the track. “I’m not sure if they was gonna use it.” In his version, he replaces Ramsey and raps alongside Thugger, Cyrus and Lil Nas X.
“When you break that record, make sure it’s not a record to you,” Wayne continues in his interview, where he gave the 20-year-old advice on how to stay afloat in the music industry. “Make sure you don’t even realize it nor recognize it at all. Put that in your head that someone else broke that record and you want to break their record. Plain and simple. Because I can’t even tell you if I was No. 1 on the charts because it never mattered. The only thing that ever should matter, bro, is your next song.”
