"1 year ago today i dropped a remix to old town road with billy ray cyrus," Nas X tweeted. "i knew it would be successful but DAMN did it change EVERYTHING! can’t express how much this song has done for me. thank u to everybody who made this happen!"
The 20-year-old artist shared a short clip of him and Cyrus hunkered down in the studio, perfecting the sensation they had on their hands. Lil Nas X described the 58-year-old country star's contribution as "the perfect conclusion" to "Old Town Road," but Cyrus emphasized how this only marked the beginning for the bubbling rapper.
