Lil Nas X drops new 'Old Town Road' remix with RM of BTS originally appeared on goodmorningamerica.com
The “Old Town Road” remix craze continues.
Artist Lil Nas X teamed up with BTS’ RM to release another version of his No. 1 single on Wednesday called “Seoul Town Road.”
BTS, short for Bangtan Boys, is a wildly successful South Korean–based group with chart-topping albums and a massive fan base worldwide.
X has collaborated with several artists for remixes of the track since its original release, including Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug and Mason Ramsey.
For this version, the song begins with RM singing a reworked version of the “Old Town Road” chorus that relocates the song from the American South to the South Korean capital. Lil Nas X and RM then switch off verses.
X shared the cover art for the remix on his Instagram, which used a purple horse to represent the new collab with RM.
BTS also tweeted out the remix, writing, "Seoul Town Road with my Ho-Mi @LilNasX."
X had some fun with the growing number of "Old Town Road" remixes on Twitter.
“Seoul town road joining the 79 other old town road remixes,” he captioned one tweet. He also tweeted, "last one i PROMISSEE."

"Old Town Road" has held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts for 16 weeks.
It's now tied with with the chart-topping records of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, and Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day." It's also on track to become the longest-leading No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
It set the record as longest-running No. 1 hip-hop song in history earlier this month. This new remix pretty much ensures that "Old Town Road" will remain at No. 1 for an additional week, setting the all-time record.
