Following the controversy surrounding “Old Town Road” that made Lil Nas X’s breakthrough single the #1 song in America, the 20-year-old artist has now become a household name in two genres rather than one.
Now it appears that the viral sensation is ready to capitalize on the moment even further, as he’s recruited Young Thug to be on the official remix of what currently sits atop the Billboard 100. Both Lil Nas X and Young Thug have teased the collaboration on their social media accounts with snippets as well as the use of emojis, though at the moment it’s unknown if Billy Ray Cyrus will be included in this particular remix.
All the same, Lil Nas X currently described the record as “country trap”, explaining that “it’s not one, it’s not the other. It’s both. It should be on both charts.”
He then went on to credit Young Thug for helping bridge the gap between different genres of music, believing the Slime Season artist to be “one of the biggest pioneers in that.”
