Old Town Road (Remix) wins again

The 2020 Grammy for Best Music Video has been awarded to Lil Nas X’s hit Old Town Road (Remix) feat. Billy Ray Cyrus. Old West outlaws, Nas and Cyrus, begin the music video in 1889 riding horses at full speed after robbing a bank, with the sheriff’s posse in pursuit. Their attempt at taking refuge backfires, leading to Lil Was X’s teleported escape to the year 2019. The country rapper sells his horse, is reunited with Billy Ray, and together they entertain the line-dancing bingo-playing locals in the Old Town Hall. The music video has guest appearances from Chris Rock (sheriff), Haha Davis (deputy sheriff), Rico Nasty (bingo caller), Diplo (washboard player), Jozzy (woman in white cowboy suit), Young Kio (man with a wrench), and Vince Staples (betting man). Director Calmatic also won the VMA for Best Direction for the Old Town Road video in 2019.

Old Town Road Lyrics

Yeah, I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road
I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more
I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road
I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more (Kio, Kio)

I got the horses in the back
Horse tack is attached
Hat is matte black
Got the boots that’s black to match
Ridin’ on a horse, ha
You can whip your Porsche
I been in the valley
You ain’t been up off that porch, now

Can’t nobody tell me nothin’
You can’t tell me nothin’
Can’t nobody tell me nothin’
You can’t tell me nothin’

Ridin’ on a tractor
Lean all in my bladder
Cheated on my baby
You can go and ask her
My life is a movie
Bull ridin’ and boobies
Cowboy hat from Gucci
Wrangler on my booty
