Lil Nas X has dropped another “Old Town Road” remix, this time featuring BTS bandleader RM. Lil Nas X’s fourth “Old Town Road” remix, this version comes only a few days after the announcement that “Old Town Road” has officially tied “Despacito” and “One Sweet Day” as the longest-charting number one single of all time. On the track, RM raps in English about, uh, horses and stuff. Listen below.
One more week, and “Old Town Road” will officially be the longest-charting number one single of all time. Remixes like “Seoul Town Road” help Lil Nas X’s bid for chart supremacy as reworks of a single song all count toward the original song’s chart totals. That’s also the reason Billie Eilish has released her remix of “bad guy” featuring Justin Bieber — she and her team hope that the extra streams from the remix will assist her in usurping Lil Nas X atop the charts. Will “Seoul Town Road” be enough to help Lil Nas X get his record? It’s hard to say — but it sure can’t hurt.
