There’s Now a BTS Remix of ‘Old Town Road’
How many remixes is too many remixes?
It’s the music crossover we didn’t know we needed.
Lil Nas X just dropped a new remix of his chart-topping single “Old Town Road,” this time teaming up with RM from K-pop group BTS. The result: the punny “Seoul Town Road,” featuring verses from the Korean rapper.
The ubiquitous track is set to break U.S. records. It’s been the Number One song on the Billboard Hot 100 for 16 straight weeks—which has the 20-year-old rapper’s hit tied for the record with Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber’s “Despacito” and Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day.”
The BTS remix is only the latest in the long line of incarnations of Little Nas X’s breakthrough single. Here’s a comprehensive list of every “Old Town Road” remix.
The Billy Ray Cyrus Remix
The Diplo Remix
The Young Thug and Mason Ramsey Remix
Lil Nas X is well aware that there has been a lot of “Old Town Road” remixes. When “Seoul Town Road” first dropped last night, he tweeted: “last one i PROMISSEE.” But, Dolly Parton playfully responded to the rapper’s suggestion of partnering up with the country star and rapper Megan Thee Stallion on yet another remix, we can’t help but hope there’s one more in store.
