Imagine if your meme song about how cool cowboys are ended up being one of the most popular songs of all time.
Well, Lil Nas X doesn’t have to imagine.
Collaborating with artists like Billy Ray Cyrus, BTS and the yodeling WalMart boy, “Old Town Road” and all its incarnations dominated the music scene in 2019 and was the No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 for 19 weeks.. Truly, Lil Nas X kept his promise of riding till he can’t no more.
