WATCH: There's A New Video For 'Old Town Road'
The long journey for “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X continues with the debut on Friday of a video for the song’s Billy Ray Cyrus-infused remix.
The new visual pays homage to classic Western flicks and features appearances by Chris Rock, Haha Davis, Rico Nasty, Diplo, Jozzy, Young Kio, and Vince Staples. What was a 2m37s track is now a five-minute mini-movie.
Lil Nas X released “Old Town Road” last December along with a no-frills video using visuals from the Wild West video game Red Dead Redemption 2. It's had more than 67 million views.
The song became a viral hit and exploded in March, when Billboard pulled it from the country chart because “it does not embrace enough elements of today’s country music.”
“Old Town Road” has shattered streaming records and has topped the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks.
