While 2019 positively belonged to Lil Nas X, his Grammys debut turned out to be a household affair as he opted to make it a Lil Nas X & Friends second.
As we all know, “Old Town Road,” maybe higher generally known as “Horses in the Back” by your lil’ nieces and nephews, was the tune that might not and wouldn’t cease streaming final 12 months. Part of the rationale for that’s as a result of Lil Nas X stored remixing the rattling tune over and over.
The unique remix featured the long-lasting Billy Ray Cyrus. After that, he saddled up with Young Thug and Mason Ramsey for one other remix, and opting to money in on the Okay-Pop wave, he threw RM of BTS on the “Old Town Road (Seoul Town Road Remix).”
In a formidable feat of stage design, Lil Nas X gave us Brandy and Monica “Boy Is Mine” vibes as he walked by completely different coloured rooms, and as he entered every set, a unique particular visitor carried out their verse on whichever remix they have been featured on. He began with BTS, moved on to Mason Ramsey after which closed out with the Big Kahuna himself, Billy Ray Cyrus.
The spectacle of each remix being carried out with all of their visitor stars (minus Young Thug, who was apparently not invited to the Old Town Ball) was adequate sufficient.
Then Lil Nas X determined so as to add a lil’ sauce on prime by tacking on “Rodeo.” But as a substitute of his official co-star Cardi B, he introduced out Big Nas for a brand-new take on the darkish, trippy, droning cowboy-inspired observe.
I’m unsure why Cardi B wasn’t invited (or declined an invite) onstage for the “Rodeo” rendition contemplating she was within the viewers.
Cardi did make some faces after the efficiency, so hopefully, her exclusion wasn’t shade on Lil Nas X’s half? Who is aware of. He was, in any case, a really devoted and constant Barb as soon as upon a time…
