1 Song, 2 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The TikTok-spawned phenomenon marries Brothers Osborne and Travis Scott for a country-trap bop fit for Stagecoach and Rolling Loud. “Old Town Road” arrives on the spurs of the video game Red Dead Redemption 2 (which the video directly references), colliding with hip-hop culture and genre-adjacent memes throughout the saloon-ready tune. Lil Nas X showcases a rumbling yet buttery vocal delivery and pairs it with cheeky lyrics that play into the tropes of contemporary hip-hop.

Wth?

Just because a country singer is thrown into the mix doesn’t make it country. This screams garbage but if I was left to label I’d choose “rap” and that’s gently putting it. Overall, it’s Pathetic.

Who said Country/Rap couldn’t co-exist?

This song is a perfect example of how new genres can form from creative minds. I’m not a huge fan of rap, and I listen mainly to country but this song is fantastic!!

Still not country....

I don’t care if George strait sang it while drinking a bud light and holding an American flag while fireworks go off... THIS IS NOT COUNTRY JUST BECAUSE BILLY CYRUS SINGS A COUPLE OF LINES. 🤦🏻‍♂️
