Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus are joined by some pretty big names!

If you haven’t heard ‘Old Town Road’ yet, then what is life like in that nuclear bunker? Isolated, we bet.

Yep, whether you like it or not (and you should like it, because it is one of the catchiest songs we’ve heard in YEARS), ‘Old Town Road’ has been topping the charts all over the world since it first appeared a few months back.

Using a sample from a Nine Inch Nails song (yep, seriously), with both Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross named as co-producers of the track, it originally was less than 2 minutes long, before Billy Ray Cyrus hopped on the track with his incredibly-easy-to-sing-along-with chorus.

After that, Diplo got involved with a remix, and ever since… well, just turn on the radio. There it is. Ever present.

A pretty long time after the song itself has become a hit, we’ve finally got the “mini-movie” to go along with it, and Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus are joined by Diplo, Rico Nasty, Vince Staples, and Chris Rock in the music video.

And anything that ends with a bingo hall climax is automatically a huge win in our books.
