Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus Grab Mason Ramsey, Young Thug for ‘Old Town Road’ Remix [Listen]
Your weekend: made! Lil Nas X is back with a second remix of his smash hit "Old Town Road" with Billy Ray Cyrus, this time featuring Mason Ramsey and Young Thug and new lyrics.
"I got the horses in the back / Horse tack is attached / Hat is matte black / Got the boots that's black to match / Ridin' on a horse, ha / You can whip your Porsche / I been in the valley / You ain't been up off that porch," the now-foursome sing in the chorus.
The new version of "Old Town Road" puts 12-year-old viral star Ramsey in the mix, and the animated lyric video is appropriate, even if some of the lyrics are more PG-13. The video finds all four artists as Apple animoji characters from their latest iPhone models, and Ramsey gets his moment to shine late in the song, singing about riding his scooter.

"Aye-o, aye-o, yippee-o ki-yay. If you ain't got no giddy up then giddy out my way," he sings, declaring a need for speed.
Fans have already begun to create this line into memes and gifs, some of which Nas and Ramsey have shared.
The original “Old Town Road” remake featuring just Cyrus has achieved RIAA diamond status, with more than 10 million units sold to date. The song is also No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart at No. 1 for the 14th consecutive week. The single has achieved the title of longest-running Hot 100 hip-hop single of all time.
"Old Town Road" is still gaining momentum and is even being used in Sylvester Stallone's upcoming film, Rambo: Last Blood. Mason Ramsey is on tour this fall — his Hows Ur Girl and Hows Ur Family Tour picks up again in September.
