Lil Nas X Filmed This Exactly One Year Ago Today.. Keep Going
On January 8th, 2019, Lil Nas X took the video above. The artist had just independently released “Old Town Road” and shortly after this, his life would never be the same.
Both the original version of the song and the remix featuring Billy Ray Cyrus eventually peaked at number one on the flagship Billboard chart, the Hot 100, for a record-breaking nineteen consecutive weeks. The song was awarded diamond certification by the RIAA, in October 2019, for moving ten million total units in the United States, the fastest song to be awarded diamond certification.
The remix of “Old Town Road” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus has been nominated for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, with its music video receiving a nomination for Best Music Video. [source]
