Helping to fuel the song’s longevity, Lil Nas X has debuted “Old Town Road” remixes of the song in the last few weeks, with the first featuring viral singer/yodeler Mason Ramsey and hip-hop heavyweight Young Thug, followed by a new version with RM of BTS. The result is a special remix titled “Seoul Town Road.”
