If you haven’t heard “Old Town Road” or it’s just released remix then you must be living under a….well actually I think it’s physically impossible to have avoid this song now cuz it is EVERYWHERE.
Like apropos of nothing this is what “brands” are tweeting:
It’s more than a song it’s a cultural moment. Where were you when Old Town Road took Over humanity?
Where were you when you found out that Mark Ruffalo and Billy Ray we’re friends?
Back to the actual song tho – 2 Things:
1. The original was like 75 seconds long and the remix with Billy Ray Cyrus is a Grateful Dead level 2 minutes 37 seconds. That is absolutely minuscule for a modern day pop song. And that’s not a bad thing. Way too many songs are unnecessarily long and a return to 1960s style 2 minute pop ditties is more than welcome by the Lil’ Dogg.

2. Lil Nas X – the Lil block is officially FULL. No more Lils. Okay. Good.
