RM has got his homies in the back — Jungkook, Jimin, J-Hope, Jin, V, and Suga, that is. The BTS member has joined a long list of artists who have hopped on the “Old Town Road” train before it heads out of town (and our collective memory). But that doesn’t seem like it’s happening anytime soon. The song already has over 800,000 views on YouTube thanks to Nas’s and BTS’s combined clout, and also the unbridled (horse joke!) passion that the BTS Army has for their boys. This is the first remix to change the song’s title and the first not to feature Billy Ray Cyrus since he first hopped on the track. Lil Nas X tweeted that “Seoul Town Road” will be the final “Old Town Road” remix. Because once you get the leader of an internationally obsessed-over boy band … where do you go from there? Beyoncé? Besides, Lil Nas X is currently tied with Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day” and Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber’s “Despacito” for the longest consecutive No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100. He galloped right into his 16th week and is just a few days away from breaking the record. With BTS Army officially on the case, “Old Town Road” is not going anywhere.
