BTS remixed Old Town Road to great effect
Lil Nas X’s debut song Old Town Road took the world by storm.
The country rap song has been number one on the Billboard charts as well as the Rolling Stone Top 100 list. Various remixes have also topped national charts, and now there's a BTS version hoping to do the same.
Old Town Road is a song that took the world by storm, initially thanks to social media platform TikTok. While remixing popular songs is nothing new - most will get one or two - Old Town Road is now looking at its fourth.
First there was the Billy Ray Cyrus version in April, then a Diplo remix ‘ALSO’ in April, then a Young Thug and Mason Ramsey mix in July, and now ‘AGAIN AGAIN’ in July, a BTS remix.
Yep, while the Cyrus mixes may come as no surprise, featuring the hit K-Pop star RM in your country song may be a bit of a head scratcher.
RM stands as the leader of the BTS superstar group, he’s the lead rapper of the group and also the first member to release his own solo mixtape.
With four remixes in just over six months, naturally the internet is making jokes on the sheer quantity of renditions, including the creator himself.
To Lil Nas X’s credit, part of the reason the song is still going strong is that he manages to keep the same song current. Just recently he released an Area 51 version of the song’s music video. He’s doing a good job keeping the song in peoples’ minds even half a year after its initial release.
