Young Thug & Mason Ramsey’s “Old Town Road” Remix Could Make Billboard History

Young Thug and Mason Ramsey (the yodeling kid who performed at Coachella) are the latest musicians to take on Lil Nas X‘s hit “Old Town Road.”

The trap/country crossover sensation is well on its way to breaking the all-time Billboard Hot 100 record, according to Nielsen’s recent mid-year report. With this latest remix, which features Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug, and Mason Ramsey, Lil Nas X is positioning his infinitely meme-able summer banger to become the most successful single of all time. Take a listen below.

“Old Town Road” has been sitting at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for 14 consecutive weeks already. If it lasts another three, it will be the most successful single of all time.

That means the Diplo and Billy Ray remixes all count, and the one listed above will only help boost figures.
