Lil Nas X’s breakout single has been holding strong at #1 on Billboard Hot 100 chart for 5 weeks now. Taylor Swift’s brand new single set a record for the biggest chart jump from #98, but still fell 1 spot behind “Old Town Road” remix by Nas X with Billy Ray Cyrus.
The single talking about horses and old towns and Gucci cowboy hats seem rather meaningless at a glance, but we have uncovered the meaning behind each line in a previous article.
“Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X caught the upwind after the song got a visual ripped off from the popular video game Red Dead Redemption, which is also largely based on the Western living style. Since then, the song has been on a steady climb up into the limelight, carrying Lil Nas X along. This is a stellar start for Lil Nas X who is expecting to drop his debut studio album in 2019.
“Old Town Road” has many covers and an official music video. But this one made entirely out of emojis would be one of our favourites. Both Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus appear in this video in the form of emojis. The video is a reel of emojis to match every word of the lyrics of the song. Some of the emojis are animated as well, especially the faces of X and Billy, who appear as cowboys.
Lil Nas X himself shared the video on Twitter as he celebrates another week atop Billboard Hot 100 chart. Watch the video below.
