Lil Nas X‘s breakout single “Old Town Road” is polarizing, but there’s no denying its impact. Released in December, the hip-hop/country anthem has since become a global hit, thanks in part to an official remix featuring country legend Billy Ray Cyrus. It currently sits atop Billboard’s Hot 100, having been on the chart for nine weeks.
“Old Town Road” has also received reworks from a variety of producers, most notably Diplo. Check out our favorites below.
