At a certain time in a young cowboys life, you must take your horse to the old town road. You must and this cannot be stressed enough riiiiide til you cant no more! Welcome to the music video for Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyruss Old Town Road remix. The duo gallops into view with a full bag of cash, before theres a time warp, sending Lil Nas X to the old town road of 2019, spreading yeehaw culture to the masses. He and his horse win a drag race against Vince Staples, he brings square dancing back into fashion (with Diplo on washboard beats), and he makes time to take a joyride with Billy Ray Cyrus in a pink Maserati sports car.
The five-minute movie features cameos from Chris Rock, Vince Staples, Diplo, Ha Ha Davis, Rico Nasty, Youngkio, and Jozzy. It also features a not-so-subtle sponsor from Snapple, with a flavor called Yee Yee Juice. The controversial country song just beat out Taylor Swift in the Billboard charts for the No. 1 slot of Hot 100 and already smashed Drakes streaming record.
To quote the country queen Miss Kacey Musgraves: Welcome to the yee yee club, bitch!
