Seoul Town Road is the latest Old Town Road remix. The new remix, released on Wednesday, is the product of collaboration between Lil Nas X and BTS’s RM.
RM’s remix version of Old Town Road is the latest re-imagination of Lil Nas X’s hit single among several others, including remixes by Billy Ray Cyrus, CupcaKKe, Young Thug and Mason Ramsey. Lil Nas X recently shared an animated Old Town Road remix music video inspired by the Storm Area 51 Facebook movement.
According to a tongue-in-cheek tweet from Lil Nas X, Seoul Town Road is the 80th Old Town Road remix.

Listen to the new RM remix below. The South Korean rapper rewords the familiar Old Town Road refrain with a reference to Seoul.
Meanwhile, Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ Old Town Road is on track to becoming the longest running No. 1 hit in Billboard Hot 100 history. It has tied the record of 16 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 set by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s One Sweet Day, and Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s Despacito (ft. Justin Bieber).
