For five months since its initial release, Lil Nas X has released the official video of its viral track "Old Town Road" with Billy Ray Cyrus. The video, which classifies itself as a "movie", was uploaded to YouTube on the 17th. Since then, tens of millions of visitors have accumulated and reached the number one trending point on the platform.
The video opens with Cyrus and Lil Nas X in a wild setting in the west of 1889. It seems that the couple has successfully stolen a bank and is hiding. Soon, they are found and shot, but Lil Nas X escapes through a tunnel that takes him to the modern era. The rest of the video shows Lil Nas X wandering over his horse, meeting countless celebrities along the way, including Diplo, Chris Rock and Vince Staples.
The original version of the track was placed at the top of the country lists after its viral success in the Tik-Tok video sharing application, but was later deleted because Billboard considered that "it was not enough country". The controversial ruling led country legend Billy Ray Cyrus to collaborate on a remixed version, which has since gained massive success. The western thematic video of the song is now available on the official Youtube of Lil Nas X.
